  • For appraisal policy updates
  • Find answers via FAQs and FHA’s Knowledge Base

An appraisal performed by a FHA Roster appraiser who is not listed on the Roster at is not active on the Roster and the appraisal will be rejected. It is the appraiser’s responsibility, as well as that of the lender, to make this determination.
