In an attempt to better serve our FHA clients, we have compiled the following list of Most Common FHA Deficiencies.
FHA repair requests are required when deficiencies are noted during the on-site inspection process. These repairs are clearly documented in our reports to protect the client’s financial interest and conform to the stringent requirements of the FHA guidelines. We prioritize all FHA repair inspections with quick turnaround times to expedite the lending process and better serve our clients. *Please remember that the appraiser is not a licensed home inspector and the FHA appraisal is not a substitute for a home inspection report.
As an approved appraiser on the Veterans Administration Panel, we are proud to provide valuation services to assist our veterans with their lending needs. VA appraisals typically require a more extensive on-site inspection than the typical conventional appraisal report.
This is why the VA panel only employs seasoned appraisers in good standing with local market knowledge.
Health and safety issues and VA minimum property requirements will be observed and summarized in the report. When VA property deficiencies are noted, they are disclosed for repair.
*Please remember that the appraiser is not a licensed home inspector and the VA appraisal is not a substitute for a home inspection report.
Upon notice of repair completion, we prioritize all VA repair inspections to provide quick turnaround times and expedite the lending process.
