FHA Issues Guidance To Lenders On Hazard Insurance Payments Following Hurricane Isaac

The FHA has issued a reminder to lenders to “quickly release hazard insurance payments” to affected borrowers trying to recover from Hurricane Isaac. According to an FHA press release, HUDNo.12-156, the FHA wants to “reinforce its existing policy requiring lenders to release insurance payouts to homeowners eager to rebuild their damaged homes following disaster.”

The release states, “In the past, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) noticed some lenders would instead use these insurance funds to pay off the outstanding mortgage balance, leaving many homeowners without the resources they need to rebuild their homes.”
