FHA links

- FHA appraisers’ home page - Go here for all your questions!!

- Main FHA link for documents, handbooks, updates, etc. -
http://www.hud.gov/offices/adm/hudclips/index.cfm  . Read the Manual 4150.2 and mortgagee letters 2005-34 and 2005-48, for details. Appraisers should review the "valuation protocol" found in Appendix D of Handbook 4150.2. Search for the documents by number.
