On May 1, HUD issued Mortgagee Letter 2013-12, which updates and replaces another recently issued letter – 2013-10 – on the FHA’s Lender Insurance Program. The letter explains enhancements to that program, which allows high-performing mortgagees to conduct pre-endorsement reviews and insure loans. Those enhancements were implemented by a January 2012 HUD rule. The letter summarizes changes made by that rule, reviews mortgagee eligibility requirements for participation in the Lender Insurance program, and outlines the initial application process. Among other things, the letter also discusses the conditions under which a mortgagee’s lender insurance authority can be terminated or suspended and explains how mortgages with such authority are subject to a revised indemnification policy.
