I'm getting varying opinions and wondered if anyone has a definitive answer on this. Can the FHA inspection date/effective date of the appraisal be BEFORE the appraiser receives the case # from the lender? (I know the inspection cannot be conducted prior to the HUD counselling for Reverse Mortgages) I've asked 6 people (appraiser's) and received 6 different opinions. One lender told an associate that a FHA inspection cannot be scheduled until the # is received. Thanks in advance for your help.
