Term Definition
FHA Loan

An agency of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Its main activity is the insuring of residential mortgage loans made by private lenders. The FHA sets standards for construction and underwriting but does not lend money or plan or construct housing. Down payment requirements are typically less with FHA loans than conventional.

Foreclosure
