​​​SAN DIEGO – ​Officials from the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and the National Association of Realtors​ (NAR) yesterday announced changes to FHA condominium policies.

According to an NAR press release, those include changes to the "lengthy and complex recertification process, burdensome owner-occupancy requirements and limits on the types of property insurance that are considered acceptable coverage."

The changes related to insurance and recertification will take place immediately as part of a mortgagee letter to be released today (Nov. 13), according to FHA Principal Deputy Assis​tant Secretary Ed Golding.

The policy changes related to owner occupancy, commercial space percentage, FHA concentration and spot approvals will be addressed in a formal rulemaking in the near future.
