An applicant for FHA approval may apply for Title I and Title II approval separately or in the same application. The applicant must pay a nonrefundable application fee when submitting an application for approval. Applicants applying for both Title I and Title II approval, whether simultaneously or separately, will only be assessed a single application fee.
Lenders wanting to expand their approval authority to include Title I or Title II must submit the request along with supporting documents through the Lender Electronic Assessment Portal (LEAP). Refer to the LEAP User Manual located at: http://www.hud.gov/lenders under the LEAP Information link in the Approvals & Renewals section.
