I am a permanent resident living in Texas. After 20 years I have no idea where my card is. I can not request a replacement online because I am not a citizen of the USA. I have my number but I am being told by my lender that it is an FHA requirement that they see my actual card. My question is, are they correct ? I have all other documents required and have never ever been asked for my actual card before.

FHA loan rules in HUD 4000.1 page 131 state: "Each Borrower must provide evidence of their valid SSN to the Mortgagee."

You can apply for a replacement Social Security Card by mail, for free, using the following form from the Social Security official site: https://www.ssa.gov/forms/ss-5.pdf

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.

For example, I bought my house for $158k. My current mortgage balance is $142k. The bank told me a few days ago my home is worth about $245k.

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?
