FHA Condominium Approval Addressed at Realtors Conference

To obtain FHA-insured financing on a condominium unit, whether for a forward mortgage, reverse mortgage, or re-financing, the condominium association must first be approved by HUD and appear on the FHA listing of approved condominiums and comply with FHA’s extensive regulations.  Consequently, FHA’s data shows that as many as 60 percent of associations seeking FHA condominium approval in 2013 were denied.

Recently, a housing program officer with the Department of Housing and Urban Development describes the top reasons properties are being denied, including financial instability and insufficient insurance, with the National Association of Realtors.  To view more about this story, please click here:

Kaman available on ATLAS in the “Kaman Reports” Section.
