Yes. Most lenders will require that the borrower pay for the appraisal at the time of loan application. For certain residential mortgage transactions, the lender must wait until the applicant has expressed an intent to proceed with the loan before collecting the appraisal fee.

Of course, the reason for collecting the appraisal fee early in the loan process is that it is possible the loan will not be made. The applicants may withdraw their application; the loan may be denied for some reason, or the property may not appraise for enough to support the loan request. The lender must still pay the appraiser whether the loan is made or not.

However, I have heard of lenders that wait until the loan is made (funded) and collecting the appraisal fee at that time.
