FHA Publishes Documents In New Languages

FHA Publishes Documents In New Languages

The Federal Housing Administration published more than 30 single-family mortgage documents and related resources used in the origination of FHA-insured mortgages, including HECMs, in Chinese, Korean, Spanish, Tagalog, and Vietnamese.

The translated documents, which are accessible on a new resource page, include the HUD Addendum to the Uniform Residential Loan Application (HUD 92900-A) required for all FHA-insured single-family mortgages; model documents, including mortgage notes and riders used in FHA forward and HECM transactions; and required borrower disclosures.

They are intended to assist lenders, servicers, housing counselors, and other FHA program participants in explaining information related to FHA-insured mortgages to those with limited English proficiency prior to borrowers executing legal documents in English, as required by law.
