FHA Streamline 2017

FHA streamline 2017 provides a way for current FHA homeowners to lower their interest rate with little or no out-of-pocket costs. These loans can also be made faster and with less documentation than a typical loan. "No Cost" Streamlines let you refinance your mortgage with no out-of-pocket expenses.

To qualify for a FHA streamline 2017 refinance requires you to complete a mortgage application to begin the process. If you currently have an FHA mortgage and want to refinance FHA allows you to refinance:

  • No appraisal required
  • No credit report required
  • No employment and income documentation

A borrower is eligible for a FHA streamline refinance without credit qualifying if they have owned the property for at least six months. Individuals may be deleted from the title on a streamline refinance if the remaining owner-occupant can demonstrate that he/she has made the mortgage payments during this time.

To qualify for a streamline refinance there must be a net tangible benefit to the homeowner. Net tangible benefit is defined as a 5% reduction to the principal and interest (P&I) of the mortgage payment plus the annual mortgage insurance premium (MIP) or refinancing from an Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) to a fixed rate mortgage.

  • the borrower must have made at least six payments on the FHA-insured
  • mortgage being refinanced at least six full months must have passed since the first payment due date of the refinanced mortgage
  • at least 210 days must have passed from the closing date of the mortgage being refinanced

What documentation will I need?

  • W2's for the past 2 years
  • Current pay stubs for the past month
  • Bank statements for last 2 months for each active account with sufficient reserves (all pages)
  • Latest retirement statement for each active account (all pages)
  • Residence addresses for past 2 years (if you reside at your current address for less than 2 years)
  • Recent mortgage statement (s)
  • Homeowners declaration page
  • Clear copy of Driver’s License
  • Clear copy of SS card

New Florida FHA streamline refinance guidelines 

Effective with case numbers assigned on or after April 18, 2011, FHA no longer requires lenders to certify employment and income on streamline refinance transactions.

No-cost refinances, in which the lender charges a premium interest rate to defray the borrower’s closing costs and/or prepaid items, are permitted.
