Such costs will be refunded upon loan approval and disbursement.

These fees generally total between $450.00 and $700.00.

How Can a FHA-Insured Title I Loan Be Used?
Your loan can be used to pay for a contractor’s materials and labor. If you do the work yourself, only the cost of materials may be financed. FHA-Insured Title I Loans may be used for any improvements that will make your home more livable and useful. They cannot be used for luxury-type items, or to pay for previously completed work.
