We order the appraisal through the VA portal and a VA appraiser will contact you to schedule the best time to appraise the home. You will be responsible for ordering your Pest Inspection with a local Termite company. Be sure to let them know that you are doing a VA refinance and you’ll be looking for a termite report and “clearance” stating that the property is free and clear of any termites, pests, etc. If you need help finding a reputable company try using Yelp or call us for assistance. Please note an appraisal and pest inspection are not required on VA IRRRL’s.
