Anybody know how to contact HUD to ask them a question, preferably by email (so I will have the response in writing?
Here is the FHA web resource page that explains how to get official answers by email. Never tried it, let us know how it works!Anybody know how to contact HUD to ask them a question, preferably by email (so I will have the response in writing?
I'll feel a lot more comfortable if I have it in writing from them.This might just be considered amazing. I had a dust up with an AMC over a FHA "rule." In the heat of the argument the AMC 'chief appraiser' (really?) said, "if you can get a HOC to agree, then I'll not make it a requirement." I said fine, I'll call them. Now I expected not to be able to talk to anyone and I could claim I hadn't heard back for another week. So I call the local office and they give me the HOC phone number. Call on a Friday at 3pm, not expecting to talk to anyone. Ask my question, get a knowledgeable person in a minute and he confirms the AMC can ram the requirement down my throat. I say, "but....that doesn't make any sense." But I get the rule.
So an appraiser can call a HOC and get an answer PDQ.
