That may depend greatly on circumstances. For example, FHA loan rules in HUD 4000.1 that cover "Expected Income" state: "Income is calculated in accordance with the standards for the type of income being received. The Mortgagee must also verify that the Borrower will have sufficient income or cash Reserves to support the Mortgage Payment and any other obligations between mortgage closing and the beginning of the receipt of the income."

That's on page 207 of HUD 4000.1. Lender standards may also apply, so if your lender requires that reserve as a condition of loan approval, the discussion would be between you and the lender, as opposed to any applicable FHA loan requirements.

The current mortgage is an FHA loan, and the mortgage documents say that it is an assumable mortgage. How do I get this process started? Is it similar to refinancing? Will the property need to be appraised? I also need to know if it is possible to assume the mortgage, given that I now have one income, instead of two.

My home value has risen enough within the last year to where what I owe is 80% of the current value of the home according to the county appraisal. I am still a long way off from 80% of the original purchase value. Is it possible to remove the MIP based on the current value of the home?
