Ok, just completed my first FHA appraisal and am ready to print. :D :D

I have gone through all my paperwork that I used to study for the FA test and I can not locate how many copies are required to be sent to the lender. I am very sure I saw this info while I was studying but I can not seem to locate it now. Logic would suggest one for FHA and one for lender but I sure would like to be sure.

Thanks for your help.

Just ask the lender and let them worry about it. I always send three and have never been asked for more.

Thanks Larry. For some reason I thought this info was part of the handbook. (Too much paperwork...)

thanks for your help.

Send it as an email attachment and let them make as many copies as they desire.

But that is actually an original, not a copy. :idea:

I believe that when the attachment is in portable document format, it is only a photo of the original.

Wish I could just e-mail it...

Believe or not guys, this lender wants a hard copy. First time in months I have had to actually use my printer to print an appraisal... :lol:

Thanks again, :D

AC:

Then when i print a copy in my office only the first copy is an original? Seems to me that if I mess up and send copy 2 out I have not complied with client objective/request.

I call any paper version not the result of runnign through a reproduction/Xerox type machine 'an original'.!!

Every report you print is a copy because the actual report is in your computer. When a lender says send two originals and one copy I believe they mean the originals actually have your signature placed on them. A copy would be simply a copy of one of the original reports. Reports sent EDI are original as well as all of the reports printed out by the lender because they have an electronic signature that is permitted by Congress. At least thats how I see it.

Larry:
You answered my question: 'sort of'...

You see, about the day after electronic signatures became available, I ceased to place my personal ink signature on any report not client specified as "original blue ink signature required".

So I am delivering an 'original', Right :?: :?

The signature is secured, it is just being printed on my machine not the clients?

Appriasing is always an adventure. :roll:
what are the rules today?
