The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) is developing a new Single Family Housing Policy Handbook. The handbook will combine prior handbooks, Mortgagee Letters, and Housing Notices into a single policy source. The handbook will be developed in phases. Phase one covers the Application through Endorsement process for Title II forward mortgages. In the coming months, FHA will complete the remaining sections and continue to solicit feedback.
FHA has posted the draft handbook on its website and is inviting comments on phase one through Dec. 15. To read the draft policy handbook or provide comments go to FHA's "drafting table" website.
