HUD ML 2012 19 Hazard and Flood Insurance Requirement Reminder

On September 20, HUD issued Mortgagee Letter 2012-19 entitled Hazard and Flood Insurance Requirement Reminder.

Hazard and Flood Insurance Requirement Reminder 

The purpose of this Mortgagee Letter is to remind mortgagees of HUD’s existing servicing procedures as they pertain to releasing hazard insurance proceeds for damaged properties securing Federal Housing Administration (FHA) insured mortgage loans. At this time, a reminder of HUD’s policy related to hazard insurance proceeds is especially important due to the extent of the devastation caused by Hurricane Isaac in parts of Louisiana and Mississippi.
