What To Know About the Appraisal Addendum

Here’s what you need to know about the appraisal cancellation addendum.

Today I want to talk about the addendum covering the right to terminate due to the lender’s appraisal. This addendum waives your right to cancel the sale if the appraisal comes in short whenever you’re using third-party financing. It’s been around for a while, but in the last few years, It’s become a lot more relevant because of the increasing prices. I wanted to cover this form in more detail since it’s being used much more nowadays.
