Hi, Kris,

Thanks very much for posting this!  We're just getting rolling with FHA, so this is most helpful.

Kris,  Thanks for the punch list, they are always helpful.  I have done several FHA deals lately but have not done a Streamline yet.  It looks pretty straight forward.

A recent change on streamlines is the FICO adjustments on streamlines do apply with some lenders.
