Belmont is very desirable place to live. Relatively small town close to Boston, with a highly regarded school system. Belmont has very good resale value.

If the mortgage contingency expired prior to your loan application getting rejected from the bank or prior to you or your attorney formally exercising the mortgage contingency your deposit may not be protected. I would contact and consult your real estate attorney asap.

Go see your local building and zoning dept.... you will find them very helpful. With the proper approvals ( or variance if needed ) in hand and making the building safe and conforming for it's new use... Yes you can.

... answered:
2 units are fine. I just had a 4-unit condominium project approved in Belmont and know the process. It took 5 weeks from submission to FHA, not counting the time to assimilate the documents needed to submit the application. You should NOT submit an incomplete application but othewise it's not a real complex process. Anyone can do it through what HUD' (FHA's parent agency) calls HRAP. It's easier with 2-4 units than with larger developments. Contact the HUD Home Ownership Center by phone at 800-CALL FHA. They'll assist you in the process or ask your mortgage professional to do it for you.
