Under a FHA-insured mortgage, both the property and the borrower must meet certain minimum standards. The borrower is charged an insurance fee of one-half percent on the unpaid balance and can, under certain conditions, receive up to 97% financing on the appraised value of the property. Borrowers are not permitted to obtain second mortgages to use down payments. Also, the FHA sets limits as to the maximum loan origination fee charged by the lender. Fha insures these loans for up to 30 years.
