This order originally came in with the footnote that the pool was empty and per the lender the home could be appraised without considering the pool as the pool was not going to be filled until after the loan cleared...:new_rofl: My response was that the report would be completed CB3 based on hypothetical that pool was filled and operational if the pool was in fact empty when I saw it. They have now indicated that they accept that I will proceed CB3 as the pool actually is going to be "removed" via concrete fill after the loan closing. So it will be CB3 based on HC that the pool has been removed and area filled in. I anticipate a 1004D request for this. My report will indicate that the 1004D will not be signed without evidence of proper demolition permits - I believe that this would be required in the city (LA) - but I'll be looking into it. If permits are not required (doubtful around here for an action of this sort) perhaps there are other things to consider as I don't really want to end up having to deal with any future complications if there are other considerations beyond just dumping concrete into a hole. Anything else I might need to consider (or views contrary to the above) on this from those that have dealt with it before or have similar experiences?
