Changes to United Guaranty’s HFA Underwriting Requirements
Effective May 13

These changes are effective for new mortgage insurance applications received on or after May 13. Only the changes outlined below are being made All other HFA underwriting requirements will remain the same.

As a reminder, the HFA requirements apply only when the expanded requirements for subordinate financing and/or minimum borrower contribution are being used for the loan.

HFA Underwriting Guidelines can be found here: HFA-Additional_UW_Requirements.pdf.

Beginning on May 13, 2013, United Guaranty will no longer publish the Geographic Quality Index (GQX®) classifications

Although geographic risk will remain part of United Guaranty's Performance Premium® pricing model, the improving housing market and other macro trends reduce the need to publish updates. If you have questions, including those related to geographic market risk, please contact your United Guaranty Account Executive.
