Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
The most common rehab loans are issued through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Rehab loans issued through HUD require an individual to have qualifying property by coming up to par on credit checks, along with other qualifications. These requirements were indoctrinated by the Housing Act of 1978.
Loan Usage Guidelines
Rehab loans can serve multiple purposes. These include buying a property itself, which can result in the final loan amount being more than its appraised value at the time of loan acquisition. This usually happens because property additions are projected to increase the value of a property, which is how the loan is a secured by the lender.
