While the agency’s primary goal is to help homeowners remain in their homes, HUD says in cases where that’s not possible, waiving the FHA regulation on property flipping will help stabilize neighborhoods and communities where foreclosure activity has been high.
The waiver is applicable to all single-family properties being resold within 90 days of the seller acquiring the property and is not limited to foreclosed homes. The waiver is subject to certain conditions and is not applicable to mortgages insured under HUD’s Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) Program.
