FHA Extends Temporary Approval Provisions for Condominium Approved Process

The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) released the long-awaited extension of its condominium project approval guidelines on August 29. The two-year extension is contained in Mortgagee Letter 2014-17 and is set to expire on August 31, 2016. To read ML 2014-17, please click here.

As expected, the extension was issued to allow time for completion of the condominium rule-making process and there are no changes made to the policy that was released in Mortgagee Letter 2012-18. Community Associations Institute (CAI) views FHA's extension as favorable as it allows more time to develop approval guidelines that are in the best interests of all stakeholders.

CAI looks forward to continuing its work with FHA on the condominium project approval guidelines as well as the development of the Single Family Housing Policy Handbook.
