Effective date of HUD rule streamlining home warranty requirements


The Department of Housing and Urban Development has published a final rule [83 FR 64269] to streamline the home warranty requirements for FHA single-family mortgage insurance by removing the regulations that require borrowers to purchase 10-year protection plans in order to qualify for certain mortgages on newly constructed single-family homes. This action conforms with the changes made by the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 (HERA). HUD, however, is retaining the requirement that the Warranty of Completion of Construction (form HUD-92544) be executed by the builder and the buyer of a new construction home, as a condition for FHA mortgage insurance.

The rule, which will be effective March 14, 2019, follows publication of a February 6, 2013, proposed rule.
