The FHA and VA back mortgages made by approved lenders, guaranteeing the lender reimbursement if the borrower defaults. Borrowers with moderate incomes, credit challenges, and low down payments can qualify for an FHA loan. VA loans, which require no down payment, are exclusively for veterans, servicemembers, certain spouses and other VA beneficiaries. The Department of Housing and Urban Development began mandating the amendatory clause in to protect buyers from paying penalties when cancelling due to a low appraisal.

Appraisers approved to evaluate homes for the government programs inspect property conditions and compare properties to recently sold homes in order to determine a value.

Unless a home recently underwent an FHA or VA appraisal, such as one conducted as part of a previous transaction that fell through, the buyer has no way of knowing exactly how much the home is worth until an appraisal is completed. Even if a contract contains an appraisal contingency, the FHA and VA require that buyers and sellers sign the amendatory clause before closing. The FHA or VA appraisal must be completed within the time frame specified under the appraisal contingency, unless the seller agrees to give the buyer more time.

When Value Comes in Low The dollar amount inserted into the blank space on an FHA or VA amendatory clause disclosure form must match the contract purchase price, according to instructions noted on the form. If the appraised value comes in lower than the purchase price, the buyer and seller must renegotiate the price; the buyer must pay the difference out-of-pocket to cover the amount that the FHA or VA will not insure, or the buyer can back out of the deal without a penalty.
