[ The latest news for Minnesota Housing homeownership lender partners ]
Condo Approval Update
U.S. Bank HFA Division recently released a Lender Operations Update (LOU) with updated guidance on condos and condo approval.
Please note this LOU has no impact on Minnesota Housing lenders. Minnesota Housing lenders who underwrite their own conventional loans can continue to underwrite and approve their own condos up to 97% loan to value, as long as they meet underlying underwriting guidelines.
