Good morning Pamela,
I have been scouring the Internet for a list of DE lenders and / or underwriters. So far, I can see that they are available on FHA Connection, which is open only to FHA-approved lenders. I called HUD to get a list of DE-approved lenders.
They do have a "lender locator" function that allows you to find FHA-approved lenders within a specified zip code. However, there is no way to filter for DE approval at this time. The FHA Resource representative said that you have to contact the lenders on the list and ask if they are DE-approved.
The condo association, if it comprises more than just a few units, may want to reconsider its decision. Having the ability to offer FHA-approved units can make the project more desirable and increase prices because it ups the pool of buyers.
I am sorry that this information is not as readily available as we would both like. But right now, this is the best we've got.
Thank you for writing and good luck.
