Yes, if you are purchasing a home, and you pay for the appraisal report, you are entitled to a report. Any problems, call me.

Of course they are, if the lender is passing the cost on to the Buyer in the transaction - the appraisal would belong ot the Buyer since he/she paid for it. Hope this helps. Cheers!

You can ask your lender to provide you a copy of the appraisal and they must provide it to you as you paying for it.

The buyer is the one who purchases the appraisal so in my opinion they are the only one that should receive it and decide who they want to see it. The seller does not have a right or need to see the appraisal. If it came in at purchase price or above to remove the contingency.
