HUD Temporary Flipping Waiver Extended Until December 31, 2011 for FHA Mortgages

By
Mortgage and Lending with Guaranteed Rate NMLS #151088

HUD has announced that its temporary waiver of the 90-day flipping restriction is now in effect until December 31, 2011.  There are no changes to the Flip Waiver that was previously issued. 

The Flip Waiver is still subject to certain conditions.  In order to be eligible for FHA financing, the mortgages must meet these conditions to take advantage of the waiver.  The complete text of the waiver extension, including conditions the waiver is limited to, is available on the HUD website.

Some of the Flip-Waiver provisions include:

1. The amount of the Rehab/Repair may not be added as part of the Seller's acquisition costs.
2. 2nd appraisal must be done by FHA appraiser and must meet all FHA requirements.
3. The final inspection for repairs as per property inspection must be done by the inspector to determine if the repairs have been completed satisfactorily and eliminated the issues.

When purchasing property with a title change in the last 12 months, its critical to determine the acquisition cost of the current seller.  Being proactive will set better expectations for the transaction and an on time closing.
