Is an Upfront Mortgage Insurance Premium collected on a loan having a very low loan to value ratio?

Most FHA mortgage insurance programs require the payment of UFMIP, which may be financed into the mortgage. Indian Lands (Section 248) do not require a UFMIP.

The UFMIP is not considered when calculating the area-based Nationwide Mortgage Limits and LTV limits.
