Can an FHA-approved Mortgagee share corporate officers with other companies?

The Mortgagee must ensure its corporate officers only represent a single Mortgagee, unless the following criteria are met:
  • the entities represented have some or all of the same corporate officers or principal owners; and
  • there is a clear and effective separation of the entities, and borrowers know at all times exactly which entity is being represented and with whom they are conducting business.
