We are in the process of purchasing a foreclosure, after having the appraisal we were told there is peeling exterior paint on the windows,
Yes it would, however, to be safe scraping all the paint off is best... The reason FHA won't allow chip paint is the potential for lead poisoning.. Hope this helps!
