HUD will stabilize or give a credit up to $4000.00 depending on the type of FHA financing used. If the buyer elects not to use FHA financing and stabilization has been done, the buyer will be liable to reimburse HUD for the costs.
For buyers using FHA 203b financing, HUD will treat for active termite infestation up to $1000.00. HUD will not do repairs.
