FHA..... Disputed Accounts & Collections. UPDATE!!!

http://portal.hud.gov/huddoc/12-10ml.pdf

 

In order to provide clarification of policies concerning Disputed Accounts and
Collection Accounts through future guidance, FHA is rescinding the new
guidance on the following topics in Mortgagee Letter (ML) 2012-3, which
was to become effective July 1, 2012:
Handling of Disputed Accounts, Public Records FHA Total User
Guide Chapter 2, and
Handbook 4155.1 4.C.2.e, Paying off Collections and Judgments.
All other guidance in ML 2012-3, which became effective April 1, 2012,
remains in effect.

Re: FHA..... Disputed Accounts & Collections. UPDATE!!!

Ok so that means they're cancelling what was to become July 1st, meaning you won't have to have collections paid that are over $1k?

It looks like it also changes the handling of disputed accounts.  What effect does it have on that?

Keep in mind that every lender has their own set of rules......FHA is only the insurer.  Depending on the lender you still may have to pay down those collections despite the change in FHA policy.
