My experience has been that the squeeky wheel gets the oil, so I'd definately follow up with your attorney and agent if you think it's taking excessively long.

It seems your realtor or your attorney should be able to find out what is holding up the appraisal?

Fire inspection need not be done until all contingencies are resolved since the inspection document has expiration date and w/o appraisal report getting a mortgage is not a done deal! Have the buyer's agent contact mortgage company right away to inquire about appraiser service scheduling, otherwise check P&S contract for the closing date and contact your attorney to get proper legal advise on the next step.
