When Can I Get My Draw on My FHA 203K Consultant Mortgage?

Mortgage and Lending with Guaranteed Rate NMLS #151088

When can I get my draw funds disbursed on my FHA 203K Consultant mortgage?  This is one very critical question that most borrowers fail to think about and ask upfront. 

When doing an FHA 203K Consultant Renovation mortgage, one very important aspect that many fail to consider is the draw process.  Once you have closed on your FHA 203K mortgage, your draw funds will need to be disbursed so that your contractor can be paid.  The Consultant 203K program does not allow for any of the renovation costs to be paid out up front prior to the work being completed. 

How the mortgage company handles that draw process is a big issue.  Most mortgage companies do not have their own internal draw departments to handle this function.  Instead, they must rely on another company to handle all of their draw disbursements.  The main problem with this is that it takes about 4-8 weeks AFTER your closing date for them to have your loan set up to issue the first check. 

For those who would like their renovation money in a matter of days from the draw request date, rather than weeks, please call (404) 591-2453.  With our internal draw department, contractor draws for Consultant 203K's are processed in a matter of a few days after your closing date.  This allows your contractors to get paid much quicker than with most other mortgage companies what offer 203K loans.

When talking to a mortgage company about an FHA 203K Renovation mortgage, there are some very important questions to ask.  Be sure that you are working with a company that actually successfully closes FHA 203K mortgages.  You don't want to be the first one they have worked on in months.

Good information. Thanks! I know these are tricky loans. Didn't realize about the delays with the draws. I will have to see if the company my clients are going to use have an internal draw dept.  Too bad you are not licensed in Hawaii.

Yvonne....The draw part is often overlooked.  I am not licensed in Hawaii, but we do have at least one office there.

Michelle....It's very important that borrowers ask the right questions before selecting a loan officer and mortgage company.
