My loan originated in 2005 and I have paid MIP for 12 years now. My home value, per taxes, is way more than my original loan amount and I owe about 79% of the original loan value.

How much longer do I have to pay the MIP?

Bruce Reichstein answered a variation of this MIP question some time ago, here's the answer he gave:

"Certain rules were in place for FHA insured loans pertaining to cancellation of the Annual Mortgage Insurance Premium (MIP) for case numbers assigned prior to June 3rd, 2013. New rules apply for case numbers assigned after that date. Dates for removal guidelines are critical.

Removal for a 30 Year Term – borrower must pay the monthly insurance premium for a minimum of 60 months and the loan must reach 78% loan-to-value (LTV) as a result of paying the loan down (amortization). LTV is determined by the original sales price on the closing statement and not the new value of the home.

Removal for a 15 Year Loan Term – For Loans that closed prior to June, 2012 – there is NO requirement that FHA MIP be paid for 60 months if the LTV is below 78%. LTV is determined by the original sales price on the closing statement and not the new value of the home.

How to Cancel the FHA MIP? While it states that FHA will automatically drop the monthly FHA MIP based on the amortization schedule, this is not always the case. We suggest contacting your mortgage servicer to make sure they are aware of your projected date for your MIP removal and for any other procedures needed."

Here is information on FHA insured loans pre-dating June 3, 2013.

FHA MIP will automatically cancel when these two conditions are met:

30-year loan terms: Annual MIP cancels once the loan reaches 78% loan-to-value and annual MIP has been paid for at least 60 months.
15-year loan term: Annual MIP cancels once the loan reaches 78% loan-to-value. There is no requirement for MIP to be paid for at least 60 months.

While it says automatically, it is up to the borrower to initiate the process from their current servicer, for the FHA may use your original home value. You also may need to pay for an updated appraisal. Please contact your servicer and do the removal request.

My house in Houston, Texas recently flooded and we are in what was declared a FEMA disaster area. I received a letter from the City of Houston stating that my house was considered substantially damaged. Since we're located inside the 100 year flood plain we can't get a building permit without either jacking up the house or rebuilding 12 inches above the base flood elevation. We have a very low interest rate on our 15 year mortgage and would like to keep that in place.

I am looking at purchasing a new house, this would be new construction in a planned community. I currently have an FHA loan on my current house. I have enough equity in my current home along with assets to have a 20% down payment on the next home. Is it possible to start the house and mortgage before selling my current home?

I sent over a copy of the transaction as I don't get paper statements mailed to me. Will a copy of the transaction suffice? I'm not comfortable sending over my bank statements. It wasn't necessary for another child's loan.

We have been in our home for over 5 years, but want to build on a piece of property in a nearby neighborhood that is in transition. We want to sell our current home when we are able to move into the new (but smaller) home. Do banks provide bridge loans or something to start construction while we can stay in your current home? What are the typical timelines and is there a different qualification or downpayment for a construction loan?
