Did you pay for the appraisal? If you did not pay for the appraisal it is not yours.
Is the loan an FHA loan? An FHA appraisal goes with the property and can be transferred from borrower to borrower if they have an appraisal already completed that supports the value.

Find those answers out first.

Are you in the midst of a sales transaction? If so, perhaps you might consider your own appraisal and forget about trying to cage fight for BofA's. That will lead to no where if they own it. Truth be known it's a known fact that the big banks own the big appraisal networks so you might be better off stepping up and paying for your own.

Hello Claudia,

Appraisals are ordered through a third party company now due to new regulations. What you need to do is to find out who the Bank of America used as the third party company and request your new lender to submit a new appraisal order and reference current appraisal report and along with any changes that need to be addressed. The cost for this can very depending on appraiser hired to do the job. A standard price range for such changes should be within 150- 250.

Hope that helps and if you need additional assistance I can be reached at 626-552-8637.

I'm not sure there can be any release of information here and regarding the appraisal. Typically your new mortgage company will need a new appraisal due to the Home Valuation Code of Conduct.

Perhaps I am not fully understanding your question, however, so let me know if I can help further.

Thank you,
