Does FHA Care about the Garage roof?

Asked by Tim, Oak Park, IL Mon Feb 23, 2009

Hi, I am under contract to Purchase a home using FHA Funding. Do the appraisers usually concern themselves with the garage? The house did find during the home inspection, no issues and nothing the FHA would take issue with. However the roof on the detached gararge is in need of repairs. I wouldn't say dire need, but there is sagging on one corner of the roof. Any info would be appriciated

Expect that the appraiser will note a poor condition of the roof or garage in the report, and this may detract from the value the garage adds to the property.

In the end, you should discuss this with your lender, they will know best. It will likely be determined by the extent of the problem as noted by the appraiser.
