FHA Streamline Refinance MIP


FHA Streamline Refinance MIP (For Loans Endorsed Before June 1, 2009)

If the existing FHA mortgage was endorsed prior to June 1, 2009, the mortgage insurance premiums have been “grandfathered”.

Upfront Mortgage Insurance Premiums (UFMIP)

For an FHA Streamline Refinance that replaces a loan endorsed prior to June 1, 2009, the new FHA mortgage’s upfront mortgage insurance is equal to 0.01 percent of the loan size, or 1 basis point.

For example, if the new FHA Streamline Refinance is for $100,000 mortgage, the FHA will assess a $10 upfront mortgage insurance premium (MIP) to be paid by you at closing. The FHA automatically adds the $10 payment to your new loan balance.

Annual Mortgage Insurance Premiums (MIP)

Annual MIP is similarly cheap for “old” FHA loans. For an FHA Streamline Refinance replacing an FHA loan endorsed prior to June 1, 2009, the annual MIP is 0.55% annually, or 55 basis points.

The complete annual MIP schedule is as follows :

  • 15-year loan terms with loan-to-value over 90% : 0.55 percent annual MIP
  • 15-year loan terms with loan-to-value under 90% : 0.55 percent annual MIP
  • 30-year loan terms with loan-to-value over 95% : 0.55 percent annual MIP
  • 30-year loan terms with loan-to-value under 95% : 0.55 percent annual MIP

15-year fixed rate mortgages with LTVs of 78% or less pay no annual MIP.
