Do I lose the appraisal fee if I don't go with the lender who originally ordered the appraisal?I paid $400 upfront for an appraisal of a house I'd like to purchase through one specific lender. However, I'm now hearing that the lender won't approve my loan because I'm a firsttime homebuyer for an investment house. If I pull away from this lender and go elsewhere, can I still use that appraisal report I already got from the first lender? Or am I out $400 for that first appraisal report?April 23 2009 - Davis00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
