The US Department of Housing and Urban Development has announced that the Upfront Mortgage Insurance Premium (UFMIP) that is required for all FHA loans will increase to 2.25%, effective with all FHA case assignments beginning on April 5, 2010.
The UFMIP was previously 1.75% for full doc loans, and 1.50 for Streamline loans.
Please note that the UFMIP is included in two places on the new GFE (be sure to include the higher amount for case assignments after 4/4/10, as it is not a valid changed circumstance):
- Page 1, Summary of your loan, under Your initial loan amount is (if the UFMIP is being financed)
- Page 2, Your Charges for all other settlement services,
- Line 3, Required services that we select (regardless of whether the UFMIP is being financed)
