I was questioned, by an underwriter, on a "cost to cure" for a foreclosure property that I appraised. She informed me my cost to cure was "too low" given the information she received from the Real Estate Broker who performed a BPO on the property. Apparently the Real Estate Broker took an inspector with her while she was viewing the property. Per the inpsector, the building has several code violations, i.e. electrical, plumbing and environmental. My appraisal states "the appraiser has made no special effort to discover any adverse environmental conditions and accepts no responsiblity for such discovery. I also go on to say that if such discovery is made, appraiser should be notifiied. I have an entire paragraph dedicated to the fact the appraiser is not an inspector and the appraisal is an observation and should not be regarded as a full property inspection. I would like some feedback regarding this topic and if anybody else provides a cost to cure. I dont think I will ever provide a cost to cure again. By the way, I did recommend an electrical, plumbing and mechanical inspection on the appraisal. I pointed that out to her as well.
