Types of Program Approvals
Effective September 14, 2015
FHA approves Mortgagees separately for participation in the Title I and Title II programs. FHA approval is conveyed to a specific legal Entity and cannot be shared with or extended to other Entities, such as a parent or subsidiary, or any Affiliates of the Mortgagee.
a. Title I (09/14/15)
Included in this section are:
A Title I Mortgagee is a Mortgagee that (a) holds a valid Title I contract of insurance and is approved by FHA, or (b) held a Title I contract that has been terminated or suspended but remains responsible for servicing or selling the Title I Mortgages that it holds and is authorized to file insurance claims on these Mortgages.
A Title I Mortgagee may be approved to originate, underwrite, close, endorse, service, purchase, hold, or sell loans under the Property Improvement program and/or the Manufactured Housing program. Unless otherwise specified, Title I Mortgagees must meet the same approval requirements and follow the same procedures as Title II Mortgagees.
b. Title II (09/14/15)
A Title II Mortgagee is a Mortgagee that has been approved to participate in Title II and/or Title XI programs under the National Housing Act (12 U.S.C. § 1707 et seq. and 12 U.S.C. § 1749aaa et seq.).
A Title II Mortgagee may be approved to originate, underwrite, close, endorse, service, purchase, hold, or sell FHA Single Family insured Mortgages or multifamily Mortgages.
