Agree with everything you mention. My Notes Section always has a lot of comments I make. I think what they were referencing might be up to 30 days after the NOV is issued. The Notes Section probably is not looked at much afterwards. The SAR throws notes in there....all the while the appraiser is on to his/her next dozen not knowing the SAR might have put ridiculous notes in there.You are so wrong and have no clue what you are talking about. Just to name a few
So when you initiate the VA Tidewater Initiative you don't place a note in the portal?
How about appraisal cancellations?
When the appraisal observation scheduled?
When there is a delay in completing the appraisal report?
Any delays caused by borrower/lender
No sales contract provided with the appraisal assignment?
No contact information provided to schedule appraisal observation?
Any STIP requested by the lender?
Lastly, VA Pamphlet 26-7 - Appraiser Timeliness requires appraisers to place a note in the portal: "The appraiser MUST place notes in WBLGY to inform the lender of any delays" or "Appraisers MUST make contact to schedule an appointment within two business day of receiving an assignment, DOCUMENTING the activity in WEBLGY"
What is even more amazing, appraisers that won't write a simple note in the VA portal. but will tell you to document, document, document everything in the appraisal addendum.
