Paramount Mortgage Company - St Louis New regulations signed into law by the President allow HUD to increase the amount of premiums charged for FHA single family housing mortgage insurance programs, however lower that actual up-front cost paid by borrowers.

Annual Premiums Increase:

The annual premiums for FHA mortgage insurance that are added in with the mortgage payment will increase however.  Beginning October 4, 2010, all FHA loans with terms greater than 15 years will be charged a higher rate for FHA mortgage insurance as shown below:

  • For loans that are 95 percent of value or higher, the fee will increase from .55 percent to .90 percent
  • For loans that are less than 95 percent of value the fee will increase from .50 percent to .85 percent.

Upfront Premiums Decrease:

On October 4, 2010 the amount of upfront mortgage insurance premiums that FHA charges a borrower will decrease from 2.25 percent of the loan amount to 1 percent of the loan amount.

Overall Effect of FHA Mortgage Insurance Premium Changes is less up front expense but higher payments:

  • Example: – Before October 4th
    • Base Loan: $144,750
    • Upfront Mortgage Insurance Premium:  $ 3,256
    • Total Loan Amount:  $148,006
    • Base payment@ 4.25% (P+I)  $728.10
    • Mortgage insurance added to payment: $66.34
    • Total mortgage payment:  $794.44
