Can I Finance Mortgage Payments Into My FHA 203K Mortgage?

By
Mortgage and Lending with Guaranteed Rate NMLS #151088

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 project involves health or safety issues or anything structural, the number might be higher up to the maximum of 6.

When considering an FHA 203K lender, ask if they have an in-house draw disbursement department and an operations center dedicated strictly to FHA 203K mortgages.  Prospect Mortgage has both of those critical components to ensure a more seamless process.

Prospect Mortgage was the #2 volume FHA 203K lender in the country for both HUD's fiscal years 2009 and 2010.

Rodney that is GREAT information to know. Does this only apply if you are having the property renovated, or can you do it for any other reason?

Thom....The financing in of mortgage payments is only available on the FHA 203K Consultant version.  The Streamline version does not allow any payments to be escrowed since that is more of a light renovation project.
