We are purchasing a home using a VA loan. We got the appraisal and a few items needed work (wasp nest removed, repaint trim, etc.)
The work has been completed and the reinspection was ordered on Friday (7/14).

Would it be ok to call the appraiser myself and ask about the reinspection or should I just wait it out?

Also our closing date was moved to 7/28 (the last day our interest rate is locked) to accommodate for the reinspection. Is it possible that we will have to extend again?

Reinspection guidelines here in AZ suggest we should try to complete them in 48 hours. it would be ok to call the appraiser just to be sure there was no problem in the process and that they did receive the request,

Thank you CindyR!
I emailed the lender to see if they have reached out to her about it. But I haven't heard back. And I don't want to be a bother or step on any toes.
I have the appraisers email and phone number. I'm thinking about just sending an email. Just really nervous right now.
Oh and I'm in central TX.

Thank you for your service. As a VA appraiser (and a fellow veteran), I don't mind if the vet contacts me with concerns about a needed inspection and a rate lock expiring. But I won't act on the inspection until my client hires me to do so. Emailing the appraiser about your timing issue is okay (IMO), but put the pressure where it belongs... on your loan originator.

Good luck!

Hi Proactive.
Thank you for replying! I had sent off an email to the LO but haven't heard back yet. My realtor also happen to email him as well to get an update and he hasn't heard back either. It was suppose to be ordered on Friday but I haven't seen a charge for it yet. I was told that they would charge the $150 when the VA system schedule's it (?). I'm going to go a head and give her a call tomorrow afternoon if I don't hear back from my LO.

The VA reg is NOT that notice of value conditions be cleared before loan closing, its that they be fulfilled prior to the lender obtaining VA guaranty on the loan POST-closing. That's why they allow you to escrow for the repair - see chapeter 9.09 in the VA lenders handbook. Google it...
