Will the FHA Help if My Payments are Late?

FHA Common Question #19

Some FHA mortgage situations may qualify for help from the FHA in the form of a one-time payment from the FHA insurance fund. This will help bring your FHA mortgage up to date, but there are requirements. If your loan is at least 4 months, but not more than one-year delinquent and you can start making full payments once again, you may qualify for this special assistance.

Be aware that you will have to sign a Promissory Note, and you will have a Lien on your home until the Promissory Note is fully paid off. Remember that this is a one-time only offer, and to protect your credit rating for future FHA loans, FHA mortgages or refinancing packages you'll need to maintain good credit.
