Wanda, knowing FHA they probably require screen doors on the hatches when selling a submarine.

Doubt it. Many windows don't even come with screens. Verify with loan officer.

I don't believe it's a requirement, Wanda.  Though a lender may know more than I do.

If they are not there no! If they are there and missing they might catch it.

Hi Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - I have never seen a specific guideline regarding screens, but as Joe Petrowsky mentioned, if it gets mentioned in an appraisal report it could raise issues with the lender, depending how badly they want to protect their own ass.

Good morning Wanda. They are not a requirement. I have seen appraisers mention missing screens in their report, it may become an issue at that point.

I would think so because at least one window has to open in each room.

Lenders vary in their requirements but I don't know of any FHA requirement regarding screens.
