Question:

I am in the process of buying a house, the mortgage broker told me that the appraiser is going to appraise the house on Shabbos and said that he didn’t schedule it for then, the appraiser just notify him when it’s scheduled for, the seller and real estate broker is a goy. Is it permitted?

Answer:

Since the non Jewish appraiser was not told by you to go specifically on Shabbos but is going on his own accord because it is then convenient for himself, it is permissible.
