What do I do about a terrible appraisal?We are purchasing a home. The appraiser did a horrible job on the appraisal. It took him a full 4 weeks to submit the final report, and the appraisal came in low. He also did such a poor job choosing comps that the underwriters rejected the WHOLE report. We were willing to accept the lowball appraisal, but how do we get past the terrible comps and the underwriter's rejection of the appraisal? He is unwilling to find more comparable comps, and we are being told by our mortgage company (2 days after our scheduled closing) that there is nothing we can do. They say they are "not aallowed by law" to request a 2nd appraisal. They advised us to write a letter stating valid reasons why THEY rejected his appraisal. It doesn't make any sense. Do we have to start all over with a new company? Do we have any recourse from the appraiser or the mortgage company?April 29 2014 - Philippi00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
