We are working on a TRID loan where the cost of the appraisal went up vs what was quoted. On loans that are underwritten to be sold on the secondary market, our appraisals are ordered through the Data Facts Firewall (hope others know what this is). Since the bank doesn't know who the appraiser will be in this process, we based our LE on the highest price ever charged for an appraisal ordered through the Firewall i.e. $460. When the job was finally accepted by an appraiser, the charge came back in at $540. Since this is a 0% tolerance category, is this fixed with a change in circumstance and revised LE?
Hope that makes sense and thank you.
