Approval of Condominiums in Puerto Rico on Evidence of Presentment of Legal Documents
Document Number: 06-4746
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-05-23
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This proposed rule amends the Department's regulations to provide that the date of recordation for purposes of obtaining Federal Housing Administration (FHA) approval of a condominium development in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico for mortgage insurance under the section 234(c) program is the date the condominium legal documents are presented to the Commonwealth Office of the Property Registry. This proposed rule would enable parties to obtain mortgage insurance upon presentment of legal documents, whether the condominium regime is under construction, proposed for construction, or was established by conversion. Instituting a single standard for approval of mortgage insurance will result in a reduction in risk, time and cost for developers and help to increase FHA activity and homeownership opportunities in Puerto Rico.
