HUD/FHA Junoir Liens

Posted on November 15, 2013 at 3:02pm 1 Comment

Im in a tough situation with an FHA backed SS. The second lien is a grant form the city but its backed by HUD. They are sticking to full payoff. Do you know if the new HUD guidelines changed the max allowance to junior lien holders or if its still 1500 plus the 1k from the seller incentive? The FCSLDT is scheduled for December 12th. Any help is greatly appreciated!Thanks a million!
