Has FHA's requirements been changed so a loan can close in the name of a non-FHA approved entity?

A mortgagee must ensure its sponsored Third Party Originator (TPO) does not purchase or hold FHA insured loans and may not close loans in their own name.

A mortgagee may permit its sponsored TPO to purchase or hold FHA insured loans and may close loans in their own name, if the TPO is also an FHA-approved mortgagee.
