House is in foreclosure and heater was not working cause gas is turned off.

Been making a note that heater is in place but not functional at time of inspection.

Do I have to do this or can I just say heater is in place and not comment that it is not functional?

You need to comment that it is non functional.

Condition the appraisal to an inspection of the heating system. Did the house has a gas water heater? You need to test it too.

Thanks

Thanks for the info. My training to be and FHA appraiser was to take a four hour class.

I heard now you don't even do that.

I am sure it will all work out well for the FHA:).

Check out the thread about the FHA check list I posted. I have a final version in pdf format you can use.

How do you know it is not functional since the gas is turned off. It may function just fine if the gas was turned on. In these cases I state that I unable to determine whether or not the furnace is function due to the gas being turned off.
