I did an appraisal 6 months ago- it was prosposed contruction. Lender called today with case number and states that I forgot to include it in the report. Nothing in the order states anything about it being FHA. Another appraiser did the final and now they are waiting to fund. Do I add case #? Is this another assignment? Is there anyway for me to find out when the case# was applied for. If I left it out then I think I should include it but if was applied for after I completed the appraisal I think its a new assignment- Anybody have any help?

1-Ask the client for the Appraiser Case Number Assignment sheet, the date will be right on there.

2-Did the written order form mention FHA in any fashion?

3-Conventional Appraisals and FHA/HUD appraisals have different SOW regulations, especially with new construction, so yes, it is a completely different assignment.

4-Appraisers do not conduct finals for FHA new construction.

Tell them they can use your original report for Conventional financing or they can order an FHA appraisal which would be a new assignment. Do NOT change anything on the original report !!!!! If you were to add the case number now, your report would not meet FHA new construction guidelines.

They had the wrong file-same last name. You think they might look- I spent 30 minutes finding my old file and going through it.
Thanks for the info-next time I will know to ask for the FHA Case number assignment sheet

If the order does not say FHA then I am pretty sure you need to go re-inspect and charge a fee. Sounds like the borrower didn't qualify for conventional and now they need to go FHA.

The FHA connection sheet could answer all the questions though.

Well, look at it from their point of view. It's better if you waste a bunch of your time sorting out something that doesn't exist rather than them wasting their time doing it.

That would be funny if it wasn't true.
