Can anyone recommend a good broker or loan officer that can close a 77,000 HUD FHA loan in 2-3 weeks?

Asked by Nnabuenyi Anigbogu, Chicago, IL Wed Jun 19, 2013

I already have Credit approval from my current bank and the FHA appraisal is good for another 2-3 months. Title commitment is good for at least 60 more days. I am looking to switch from my current lender because the are stalling in giving me collateral approval due to a HUD escrow attached to the property. The HUD PCR is not reflective of the escrow and they refuse to send out the appraiser to verify the reason for the repairs. Any help would be appreciated.

I originally was talking to guaranteed rate but the loan officer i talked to said he couldn't go that low (77,000 property value with 20% down). Also i forgot to add that my loan is high DTI (aboout 55%). It passes DU underwriting though which is how i got the original credit approval so i need a lender that does not have overlays.

Thanks for the response.

My question is why is the HUD PCR not reflective of what is required in repair escrow? That sounds like it my be a problem for any lender doing this loan. Are there other items needed to be done that HUD has not identified on their report? If so the appraisal report needs to be sent to HUD directly to address. Regarding the current lender not sending out an appraiser that is not normal, is the lender your working with not familiar with this process? If there are deficiencies that need to be addressed to make the property conform to current HUD and municipal specification and are not raised an inspection is required. Please feel free to email me any questions I'd be happy to help.
