> Property Improvement Loan Insurance (HUD/FHA)
The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) makes it easier for consumers to obtain affordable home improvement loans by insuring loans made by private lenders to improve properties that meet certain requirements. This is one of HUD's most frequently used loan insurance products--by the end of fiscal year (FY) 1996, it had insured almost 35 million loans totaling $43.6 billion.
General Program Requirements:
Eligible borrowers include the owner of the property to be improved, the person leasing the property (provided that the lease will extend at least 6 months beyond the date when the loan must be repaid), or someone purchasing the property under a land installment contract.
