Title: Permanent Foundations for Manufactured Housing (FR-5075) 
Abstract: This rule would amend HUD’s regulations governing manufactured homes that are to be the security for a title II Federal Housing Administration (FHA) insured mortgage. The current regulations contain prescriptive requirements pertaining to permanent foundations that do not provide for flexibility of design. HUD proposes to remove these requirements for both existing and new construction manufactured homes and instead defer to the requirements established by the Model Manufactured Home Installation Standards (Model Installation Standards). (A separate rule would establish the minimum acceptable standards nationwide for the installation and set-up of manufactured homes.) This rule will not supplant the current installation requirements entirely, but will permit them to be used in cases of FHA refinance transactions for any existing manufactured home that is currently security for an FHA-insured loan and which met FHA requirements at the time of the original endorsement. The rule would also amend HUD’s regulations governing manufactured homes that are to be security for a title I FHA-insured mortgage. The proposed rule would promote affordable housing.
