We did an FHA appraisal for lender 1. Borrower has since gone to lender 2. The FHA #, and therefore the appraisal was transferred to lender 2 as per FHA guidelines in publication 4000.2. Lender 2 is saying that the appraisal must be put in lender 2's name. If this were not an FHA appraisal, of course the answer would be no can do, we need to do a new assignment. Since this if an FHA appraisal, and the appraisal, and the case # travel with the property a "new" appraisal cannot be done for 6 months. I cannot find anything in the FHA guidelines that specifically says lender 2 does not need to have the appraisal put in thier name, and I cannot find anything in USPAP that says it is OK or not OK to change the lender name on the appraisal. Can anyone direct me to something in writing regarding this issue that I can send to lender 2?
