Can I get access to a previous FHA appraisal?

Asked by Warriorpoet, Phoenix, AZ Mon Nov 29, 2010

I looking at buying a home that I believe had an FHA appraisal done about 3 weeks ago. Do I have any ability (I'm using FHA as well) to gain access to the appraisal that was done a few weeks ago? It's my understanding that FHA won't do another appraisal if one has already been done in the past 6 months. I'd like to avoid paying for additional appraisal if FHA is going to use the previous one anyway.

Help the community by answering this question:


Yes, if the previous agent will give you the name of the appraiser. The actual request will have to come from the new mortgage company/broker.

The buyer may have to pay $100-$200 to have the appraisal re-issued (rip off), but it is better than paying for a new appraisal.

Hope this helps.

I have had my lenders located the previous appraisal on several occasions. Your lender is going to have to do this anyway so I would ask him or her.

If you don't have a good lender yet, I would recommend using Scott Parker at Hometown Lenders, he is awesome and I have been using him for years. He can track down anything in a New York Minute. His contact information is here


Hope this helps!
