Who is Responsible for ordering the appraisal and survey, and when is it ordered?
Mortgage Solutions Financial will order the appraisal and survey for you. The builder may also order the survey just after completion or just before closing. Old surveys cannot be used when a home is changing owners because of the possibility there has been an encroachment to the property lines, building lines, or easements. In most instances, we do not need a survey on a refinance transaction. We order the appraisal on all refinance and home purchase loans.
