FHA Appraisals:Trip Hazards

by Michael Bolton on September 26, 2011

One of FHA’s mandates for appraisers is to identify safety issues when doing an appraisal. In this video you can see that the transition from one area to another is larger than a little bump, and is smaller than a step. It’s in between the two, which is why I considered it a trip hazard; because someone will most likely get injured by not noticing it. This is easily fixed by putting a small 45 degree transition between the rooms. Both FHA and the underwriter have the authority to overide me; all my job is just to point out what I think is a saftey concern.

If you have any questions, or real estate appraisal needs (divorce, bankruptcy, tax appeal, or estate planning) please contact Michael at 612.599-2581, or use the form on the contact page.
