a 203k consultant is not a contractor. A contractor can become a 203k consultant but they cannot be both on the 203k from the beginning to end.

The consultant conducts feasibility analysis, performs work write-ups, specification of repairs and inspections.

The contractor submits the renovation proposals and performs the work, which is inspected by the 203k consultant.

The consultant and the contractor are 2 separate individuals/entities.

There is no list of approved contractors for the 203k. Since 1995, HUD no longer approves builders/contractors, and according to Mortgagee Letter 00-25, lenders also do not "approve" contractors for the 203k. Only the consumer can approve the contractor on the 203k. HUD has placed the responsibility of contractor approval and selection on to the consumer/borrower, according to HUD form 92700-A.

There is no list of approved contractors for the 203k.

If you are going to spend less than $35,000 on repairs, you can do a streamline and don't need a 203k contractor. If not, the lender should be able to give you a list.

Make sure you are getting the best rate and fees on your FHA 203K.

Ours are second to NONE.

On average, we are saving our clients over $3,200.00 PER LOAN.

Care to compare? Get your GFE / Cost breakdown and send it to me... and see. ;)

True, very true, but there is no list of "approved contractors" as you stated. It just does not exist.
