Changes to FHA Mortgage Insurance Premiums

Post date: Oct 30, 2010 12:52:8 AM

Based on the new authority, effective for FHA loans for which the case number is assigned on or after October 4, 2010, FHA will lower its upfront mortgage insurance premium (except for HECMs) simultaneously with an increase to the annual premium which is collected on a monthly

basis. This policy change will decrease upfront premiums for purchase money and refinance transactions, including FHA-to-FHA credit-qualifying and non-credit qualifying streamlined refinance transactions. View attachments for more details.
