Recently performed an FHA appraisal on a property with a broken window in the garage/basement area. I called out repair on the window, because broken glass was still in the frame and I consider this to be a safety concern. The lender is curious what would constitute an adequate repair. Could he remove the broken shards from the frame and then board up the window, making sure it was weatherproof, or does he need to replace the window completely. I guess the borrower is strapped for cash. I am reviewing the handbook now, but I thought I would get some opinions. Thanks.
