203KHi all, My husband and I are looking into obtaining a 203K for a property in Maine and would like to hire my uncle, a licenced, bonded, insured contractor to do the work. Has anyone had any success getting around the contractor cannot be a relative clause? We trust him much more than we would a stranger and really feel like he would keep all of the subcontractors honest as well. From other threads it seems like there may be ways to get around this clause but our loan officer did not seem flexible about it at all. Has anyone had any luck?
