If a HECM Collateral Risk Assessment is completed will an additional appraisal be required under the property flipping rules?

Per Mortgagee Letter 2018-06, for all Home Equity Conversion Mortgages (HECMs) with FHA case numbers assigned on or after October 1, 2018, additional valuation protocols required for re-sales occurring between 91 and 180 days following acquisition are superseded.  The 90-day prohibition remains in place.  Property flipping HECM cases are subject to FHA’s collateral risk assessment.
