Increased enforcement efforts became a feature of the new environment at the FHA. This article by Clint Rockwell and Melissa Klimkiewicz helps mortgage lenders adapt to the new environment at the FHA and identifies weaknesses in lender operations that may result in findings of non-compliance. Finally, the authors provide useful advice for lenders faced with FHA enforcement actions. The article appeared in the "Open Forum" of National Mortgage News.
