Can I request a copy of the appraisal even if the buyer has paid for the service?

It's not required. The buyer usually requests it. Sometimes the seller will do it before they list the house and have the report for any prospective buyers.

Hello Dina,
Revere's in-law / "illegal apartment" issue is difficult for our seller clients to comprehend. There are no exception allowances offered. The only grandfathered item would be that, if a homeowner has paid taxes as a two family status for 10 or more years, the city will allow homeowner to make additional parking spaces. My experience has been with split level ranches - code enforcement will issue permits to pave over that little square of lawn in front for additional off-street parking. There are two options on the interior; Conform & convert to present code and acquire occupancy certificate or remove the kitchen back to the studs. In one case where the unit was more than 1/3 below grade and bedrooms had casement windows, my homeowner was required to remove ALL the dividing (non-support) walls as well as the kitchen and hardwire all smokes - regardless that it was marketed as a single.

Hope this helps.
