Are appraisers milking buyers for "re-inspection fees"Are appraisers milking buyers for "re-inspection" fees. I have found that in my recent experience this is a game that a lot of the dirtbag appraisers play. When the bank orders an appraisal in order to obtain a mortgage, the appraiser purposely and knowingly leaves out pieces of information the bank is going to require. They give themselves an excuse to have to re-inspect the property because you are picking up the bill. Any experienced appraiser knows what the banks are going to want to see in their reports. They should have included it in the report the first time. What do they care? The borrower is picking up the tab, right? As a purchaser I have no recourse if I want the deal to go through because I am at the will of the appraiser and the loan underwriter. So thank you, Streetlinks, appraisal management companies and appraisers on behalf of other potential homeowners that have had deals fall through because of appraisers.This is all too common working with appraiser management companies like StreetLinks, the company I am stuck working with right now. I welcome them to respond to this post if that is not the case.December 20 2011 - Walnut Creek00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
