The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Fiscal Solvency Act of 2012 has been passed by the full House of Representatives by a vote of 402-7. The Fiscal Solvency Act includes provisions to strengthen and broaden the ability of the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) to avoid or recoup losses for loans originated or underwritten by a mortgage lender which did not comply with FHA guidelines, as well as expand HUD’s ability to terminate the authority of poorly performing lenders to participate in FHA programs.
