FHA Modifies Requirements for Combined Loan AmountsThe National Association of Realtors® reports that the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) recently released Mortgagee Letter 2010-36, Requirements for Combined Loan Amounts, which eliminates the requirement that the sum of all liens must not exceed the geographic maximum loan amount for mortgages insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA).Effective for case numbers assigned on September 7, 2010, or later, only the FHA-insured lien is subject to the geographic maximum loan amount. This applies to both purchases and refinances.Mortgagee Letter 2010-36 -- Requirements for Combined Loan AmountsNovember 09 2010 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
