mortgage: Will Your Mortgage Lender Pull a New Credit Report The Day of Closing???? - 03/20/11 11:02 AM
Does Fannie Mae require a new credit report right before closing?  The answer to this question is no. 
It is true that many lenders are in fact pulling a new credit report the day of or just a few days prior to closing.  This is due to an mis-interpretation of an announcement that Fannie made in 2010. 
On February 26, 2010, Fannie Mae issued Lender Letter LL 2010-03 as part of its Loan Quality Initiative. Part of this initiative involves undisclosed liabilities.  The announcement read:
"Lenders are responsible for determining that all debts incurred or closed by the borrower, up to and concurrent … (10 comments)

mortgage: Can I Finance Mortgage Payments Into My FHA 203K Mortgage? - 03/10/11 01:46 PM
The answer to this question is yes.   With a Consultant FHA 203K Renovation mortgage, HUD allows for up to 6 months of PITI to be financed into your new FHA 203K mortgage.  This allows borrowers the ability to more easily maintain two homes for a brief period of time. 
The maximum number of months depends on how long the HUD Consultant indicates that the property will be uninhabitable due to the renovations.  This means that the number will vary between 1-6 months depending upon the complexity of the project.
For minor to light renovations, you might expect 1-2 months to be escrowed.  If the … (2 comments)

Does your 203K lender have an in-house Draw Department????
This is one very important question that most Alabama buyers and real estate agents fail to ask when comparing mortgage companies that offer FHA 203K Renovation mortgage program.  There are many mortgage companies who do "offer" FHA 203K mortgages.  Most often, they only offer the Streamline version of the program.  Very few also offer the Consultant version of the program.  Surprisingly, even less of them actually have an in-house draw department.  In fact, there are only a handful of 203K lenders with an in-house draw department.

mortgage: Can I Use an FHA 203K Streamline for a Health or Safety Issue? - 02/27/11 03:53 AM
The correct answer to this question would be that "it depends". 
In some instances, an FHA 203K Renovation mortgage can be used to satisfy health or safety issues.  The FHA 203K Streamline loan allows for an initial disbursement of 50% of the repair costs.  As long as this initial 50% disbursement is sufficient to complete the health or safety the issues, then an FHA 203K Streamline can be used.  If 50% will not be sufficient, then an FHA 203K Consultant mortgage will be needed.
