FHA condo loans

Asked by Jeremy R, Redondo Beach, CA Thu Oct 9, 2008

Is FHA possible for a 2 unit building?

According to http://www.fha.com/condominium.cfm its not!

"The building must contain at least four dwelling units and can be comprised of detached and semidetached units, row houses, walkups, or an elevator structure."

http://www.fha.com is not the formal hud government agency and technically has no official say. The formal hud government website does not explicitly mention this rule.

So, is this fact?

No. FHA will insure condos with only 2 units. Only one unit can be financed with FHA. The problem is finding an investor that will buy the paper.
