Prepare Board of Directors for Association’s FHA Certification
The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) provides mortgage insurance on loans made by FHA-approved lenders throughout the United States. It insures mortgages on single-family and multifamily homes--including condominiums and homes in planned communities. Since late 2008, the FHA has issued regulatory guidance to set standards associations must meet in order for a prospective member to qualify for FHA financing. The FHA has said that it conducts thorough appraisals to protect both lenders and borrowers.
