    First let me say I am so sorry about your situation.

    Can you get a loan approved subject to the roof being fixed? If you can, you may be able to have to contractor paid off at closing of the loan after he fixes the roof.

    What the heck is your insurance company doing? they should have had those repairs made long ago! If not I would get on the phone to them, you shouldn’t have to be in a house with a leaky or damaged roof.

    Get a contractor to give you an estimate of total renivation/improrvement job including the roof and everything else falling off that needs fixing and and get an “as will be” appraisal…then go back to the bank and and try and get a loan based on the contractor estimate and the proposed value of the property after completion of improvements.

    This is a tough situation.

    You may consider seeking some funds from local business who are willing to help in your unfortunate circumstance.

    Try getting some local media to cover the situation and you might be surprised and who come forward to help you out.

    This is easy! You need a FHA203K loan. You can do any other repairs as well.
