James Graner has been approved by Hud for FHA appraising since 1996. Most recent mortgage/appraisal letters have been studied and are always within reach for review, should that be necessary.
Property guidelines for residences were established by HUD for homes that would be eligible for Fedral Housing Authority insured mortgages. The responsiblity for determining whether a home meets all requirements has been placed on the FHA appraiser. This found to be the most appropriate course of action, instead of calling upon a building inspector for a second trip to the home. The list items is long and often a REALTOR or a Mortgage Professional does not understand what is required for such loans. HUD does not wish to all mortgages on Fedral Housing Authority mortgages without numerous items meeting a minimum standard. James S Graner wrote about such things on his blog FHA Property Guidelines Are Not Understood by Many Mortgage Originators!
