As a reminder the new change from Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the upfront mortgage insurance premiums (UFMIP) on Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loans will revert back to a flat fee, effective with case numbers assigned on or after Oct. 1 2008.
Upfront MIP factors effective with case numbers assigned on or after Oct. 1, 2008, are as follows:
- Purchases and Full Credit Qualifying Refinances = 1.75%
- Streamline Refinances = 1.50%
- FHASecure transactions = 3.00%
Sections of the Act NOT impacted:
- 223(e) Declining Markets
- 238(c) Military Impacted Areas
- 255 Home Equity Conversion Mortgages (Reverse mortgages)
- 184 ETO Native American Lending (HUD-184)
This will definitely help with borrowers who were high risk based and paid 2% plus. These changes are all part of Bush's proposed plan of The Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008.
