According to part 323 appraisal regulations if you do anything with an existing loan you need an updated appraisal. So if we order an updated appraisal on a loan that we are concerned about , currently we eat the cost. The question we have is if we wanted to charge the consumer for this appraisal, how would we disclose it on the GFE & the HUD. It has been suggested by another bank that the charge is collected when the loan pays off. Our initial thought is that it would have to be disclosed somehow.
In my opinion, this isn’t a settlement charge and it’s not even a charge you’re aware will occur, therefore, you can’t and aren’t required to disclose it on the GFE/HUD. The purpose of the language in your note is so that your borrower is aware that this might occur and agrees to that term in the contract.
Since our note has the language “CUSTOMER SHALL PROMPLTY UPON DEMAND BY BANK REIMBURSE BANK FOR THE COST OF EACH SUCH APPRAISAL.” What is the best way to collect the fee and be compliant? Can we just send them a copy of the bill or can we add it to the loan as added fees and collect when the loans pays off.
