I'm hoping to get some insight into this topic.

I completed an FHA appraisal back in November 2016. Now a new FHA case number has been assigned because of issues with the borrower etc. etc. and I'm being asked by the lender to change the FHA case number but leave the effective date the same. My thought is that if I change the case number on the report then the effective date has to change; translation I need to re-visit/re-inspect the property and re-evaluate comps.

Mortgagee letter 2010-15 states

The effective date of the appraisal cannot be before the case number assignment date unless the lender certifies, via the certification field in the Appraiser Logging Screen in FHA Connection, the appraisal was ordered for conventional lending, HUD REO or government guaranteed loan purposes but was performed by a FHA Roster Appraiser and is being converted to a FHA-insured mortgage. The mortgagee must retain documentation in the case binder substantiating conversion of the mortgage to FHA.

Also, in FHA handbook 4000.1, this letter wasn't one of the many that had been super ceded.

Am I digging my heels in too much?

Thanks in advance for advice.

Call your HOC sounds like same borrower which is good. I have done these were my HOC said it was OK but reminded me to keep the same effective date because that's when you physically inspected the property but you will have a new signature date and explanation that you received a new case number. BUT just to feel comfortable contact your HOC the lender should also be able to give you a copy of the new case number assignment .
