Home Equity Conversion Mortgages, or HECM for short, are designed to help qualified borrowers take out an FHA guaranteed loan against the equity built up in their property. What does it take to be eligible to apply for an FHA home loan? FHA requirements include details about income, credit rating and other factors, but before a loan officer looks at any of that information, an applicant has to meet the basics. If you had Upfront Mortgage Insurance on FHA mortgages signed on or after December 8, 2004, you would not be entitled to a refund from the FHA on your Upfront Mortgage Insurance.
