How does a Lender who is already Title I or Title II approved obtain the other type of approval?

An existing FHA lender seeking to expand their approval to either Title I or Title II, must submit its request and supporting documentation via the Lender Electronic Assessment Portal (LEAP). Lenders will not be issued a new 10-digit FHA ID number for Title I or Title II approval; the current FHA ID number will be used for both programs.

Please refer to the LEAP User Manual located at: under the LEAP Information link in the Approvals & Renewals section.
