On September 30, the FHA published updates to several sections of its Single Family Housing Policy Handbook. The updates only apply to loans originated on or after June 15, 2015 and are a result of FHA’s attempt to create a consolidated Handbook that is intended to be a single authoritative source of relevant FHA policy. The updates relate to a variety of policies including origination/processing of loan applications, underwriting, and mortgage closing requirements. They also relate to several specific programs and products including refinances, ARM loans, new construction, weatherization, and solar and wind technologies. Future updates are anticipated regarding (i) doing business with FHA; (ii) servicing and loss mitigation; (iii) claims and disposition; and (iv) quality control, oversight, and compliance issues.
