FHA Financing Addendum

How To Fill The FHA Financing Addendum Step By Step

The FHA Financing Addendum is a form that must be fully completed before extending a mortgage loan insured by the FHA (Federal Housing Authority) (Source). This agreement is concluded between the seller and the purchaser of the home (Source) after the buyer has fulfilled all the mandatory FHA loan requirements with the loan limits defined for each year (Source).

  • Filling of the document. The purchaser, that I assume it is you, the reader, and the seller, are the subjects to conclude this document. Preferably, this FHA financing addendum has to be filled out with the presence of your mortgage loan broker.
  • Complete the first page: Normally a two pages document, on page one, there is a declaration of Written Statement. This statement provides the seller an adequate notice of the intent of the prospective purchaser to buy the home. Likewise, you will complete the duration of the contract (term or length of the mortgage loan contract), rate of interest, the attributes of the mortgage loan (adjustable type, variable type or fixed type), the amount of the mortgage, the address of the home and of course the current date.
  • If you, as the purchaser, decide for the Written Statement after the completion of the Addendum, then, purchaser and seller will perform an agreement for the signature of a Cancellation Letter if finally, the financing happens to be falling through.
  • Complete the second page of the form: This includes the sale price of the home (sometimes this information will be in the first page of the FHA financing addendum form), the processing fees, the declaration of which party will perform the payment of the reinspection fee and for how much time the rate will be maintained without changes. This is usually referred to as “lock the rate” for an agreed period of time.
  • Copies of the signed document will be furnished to the property seller, the purchaser, and the FHA lender. I have seen also photocopies for the mortgage broker. You, as the buyer should retain this form, that now is signed and is a legal instrument and keep it along with all the records regarding the property and the mortgage loan.

Check The Calculations For The FHA Financing Addendum

In the FHA financing addendum, there are some quantities to introduce regarding the monthly mortgage insurance, the down payment, and the base loan amount. I would like to ensure that you know how these numbers are calculated. Therefore, you will be able to understand how are they completed into this Addendum.

Consider the following purchase price, minus the typical 3,5% down payment (it can be more in cases of the identity of interest between the parties) so that we have finally a base loan amount

  • $ 275,000 Purchase Price
  • x 96,5 % To Calculate the after considering the typical 3,5 % down payment.
  • = $ 265,375 Base Loan Amount After The Calculation Of The Down Payment.

So we would take the purchase price of $ 275,000 and with a standard down payment, we reach the base loan amount there.

Now, with the base loan amount, we will calculate the upfront mortgage insurance.

We are going to take the base loan amount that you just came up with times 1.75 percent. This calculation gives you the number of upfront mortgage insurance that goes on your Addendum form.

  • $ 265,375 Base Loan Amount
  • x 1.75% FHA upfront mortgage insurance
  • $ 4,644 This is the FHA upfront mortgage insurance.

Now we will calculate the total loan amount. For this, you have to add the FHA upfront mortgage insurance to the previously calculated base amount. So this is

  • $ 265,375 Base Loan Amount + $ 4,644 FHA upfront mortgage insurance = $ 270,019 Total Loan Amount.

Now we will have to calculate the monthly mortgage insurance, for which we will take the final loan amount times 0.85 percent, then divided by 12. This calculation provides us monthly mortgage insurance of 191 dollars with 26 cents that is as simple as it gets.

  • $ 270,019 Total Loan Amount.
  • x.85%
  • $ 2,295.16 divided by 12 months in the year gives us $ 191.26

I hope that now it is clear for you, as a buyer, what is this Addendum and how are the calculations performed.

Further Readings

We have interesting articles about non-conventional mortgage loans. The basic ones we will recommend to you are stated income loans, where we discuss if they are currently legal or not, how can you obtain one, and the situation of these loans in California. We are also covering other non-conventional mortgages, such as the ITIN mortgages, luxury home financing that is a figure similar to the jumbo loans, the no ratio loans that do not consider the debt-to-income ratio during the underwriting process, and those loans offered by Funding For Flipping.

No doc hard money loans and the very similar hard money construction loans.

If you are into more conventional mortgages such as FHA mortgages, I suggest you read the following related articles described below.

We explain the FHA loan requirements completely, with the current limits for this year. We also go through the appraisal guidelines, and moreover, we are worried about the peeling paint and why it can be an issue.

Completing forms is necessary, so we also study the number format of an FHA case and how to submit an FHA file, how to complete the form HUD 92900, the form for the FHA notice to the homeowner, and the FHA Financing Addendum.

Regarding special housing programs, I would like to include the FHA Back To Work Program.

Furthermore, there are two conflicting situations that can occur that are the situation of a conditional commitment and the identity of interest.

A personal loan is a medium term loan with a fixed interest rate that is repaid in equal monthly payments and it's usually limited to 24 months. Loan offers and eligibility depend on your individual credit profile. Our lenders can help you obtain as much as $3,000 depending on the lender, your state and your financial situation.

The owner and operator of businessfinancenews.com is not a lender and is not involved into making credit decisions associated with lending or making loan offers. Instead, the website is designed only for a matching service, which enables the users contact with the lenders and third parties. The website does not charge any fees for its service, nor does it oblige any user to initiate contact with any of the lenders or third parties or accept any loan product or service offered by the lenders. All the data concerning personal loan products and the industry is presented on the website for information purposes only.

Businessfinancenews.com does not endorse any particular lender, nor does it represent or is responsible for the actions or inactions of the lenders. Businessfinancenews.com does not collect, store or has access to the information regarding the fees and charges associated with the contacting lenders and/or any loan products. Online personal loans are not available in all the states. Not all the lenders in the network can provide the loans up to $3,000. Businessfinancenews.com cannot guarantee that the user of the website will be approved by any lender or for any loan product, will be matched with a lender, or if matched, will receive a personal loan offer on the terms requested in the online form. The lenders may need to perform credit check via one or more credit bureaus, including but not limited to major credit bureaus in order to determine credit reliability and the scopes of credit products to offer. The lenders in the network may need to perform additional verifications, including but not limited to social security number, driver license number, national ID or other identification documents. The terms and scopes of loan products vary from lender to lender and can depend on numerous factors, including but not limited to the state of residence and credit standing of the applicant, as well as the terms determined by each lender individually. 


APR (Annual Percentage Rate) is the loan rate calculated for the annual term. Since businessfinancenews.com is not a lender and has no information regarding the terms and other details of personal loan products offered by lenders individually, businessfinancenews.com cannot provide the exact APR charged for any loan product offered by the lenders. The APRs greatly vary from lender to lender, state to state and depend on numerous factors, including but not limited to the credit standing of an applicant. Additional charges associated with the loan offer, including but not limited to origination fees, late payment, non-payment charges and penalties, as well as non-financial actions, such as late payment reporting and debt collection actions, may be applied by the lenders. These financial and non-financial actions have nothing to do with businessfinancenews.com, and businessfinancenews.com has no information regaining whatsoever actions may be taken by the lenders. All the financial and non-financial charges and actions are to be disclosed in any particular loan agreement in a clear and transparent manner. The APR is calculated as the annual charge and is not a financial charge for a personal loan product. 

Late Payment Implications

It is highly recommended to contact the lender if late payment is expected or considered possible. In this case, late payment fees and charges may be implied. Federal and state regulations are determined for the cases of late payment and may vary from case to case. All the details concerning the procedures and costs associated with late payment are disclosed in loan agreement and should be reviewed prior to signing any related document. 

Non-payment Implications

Financial and non-financial penalties may be implied in cases of non-payment or missed payment. Fees and other financial charges for late payment are to be disclosed in loan agreement. Additional actions related to non-payment, such as renewals, may be implied upon given consent. The terms of renewal are to be disclosed in each loan agreement individually. Additional charges and fees associated with renewal may be applied. 

Debt collection practices and other related procedures may be performed. All the actions related to these practices are adjusted to Fair Debt Collection Practices Act regulations and other applicable federal and state laws in order to protect consumers from unfair lending and negative borrowing experience. The majority of lenders do not refer to outside collection agencies and attempt to collect the debt via in-house means. 

Non-payment and late payment may have negative impact on the borrowers’ credit standing and downgrade their credit scores, as the lenders may report delinquency to credit bureaus, including but not limited to Equifax, Transunion, and Experian. In this case the results of non-payment and late payment may be recorded and remain in credit reports for the determined amount of time.
