After the Surfside condo collapse, the feds created some risk management using Fannie and Freddie lending which may impact your condo deals (e.g., risk management questionnaire).

Please contact SCR if you have reports of condo purchase issues related to these risk management rules (e.g., the HOA is hesitant to complete the risk management questionnaire, multistory condo issues being blanketly applied to not a multistory condo deal, providing 6 months of HOA minutes to the lender).

NAR has been working on solutions:
