FHA CONDO GUIDELINE CHANGES - DELAYED

Back in June, HUD issued FHA Mortgage Letter 09-19, announcing several dramatic changes to mortgage loan guidelines effecting condominiums. For the first time, FHA direct endorsement lenders will be able to approve condominium projects in whole, rather than on an ad hoc or "spot approval" basis.

Those changes are all ON HOLD for at least 30 days. The Federal Housing Administration is delaying the Oct. 1 effective date of its new condominium policies while it finalizes several modifications. "We'll be issuing new guidance soon, with several modifications to the policy described in Mortgagee Letter 09-19," a HUD spokesman said, with a November 2 effective date.

But today, its root system is invading your basement, its acorns bombard your yard and its huge limbs loom threateningly over your roof. By law, can you cut it down? Trim it? Turn it into a boat?
