Single Family Housing Policy Handbook: Draft Title I Section Posted Today for Feedback

Today, the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) posted for stakeholder review and feedback, the draft Title I section of its Single Family Housing Policy Handbook 4000.1 (SF Handbook). This posting is a continuation of FHA’s progress toward a consolidated, authoritative SF Handbook that will make it easier to do business with FHA.

When published, the Title Isection will replace existing guidance on:

  1. Origination, Servicing, Claims and Disposition of Manufactured Home Loans, including Lot and Combination Loans;
  2. Origination, Servicing, Claims and Disposition of Property Improvement Loans;
  3. Doing Business with FHA for Title I Lenders; and
  4. Quality Control, Oversight and Compliance for Title I Loans and Lenders

The Title I section consolidates existing guidance found in approximately 120 Title I lender letters and other policy artifacts. The content will provide FHA’s Title I lenders, appraisers, and other stakeholders with a comprehensive resource of policy.
