Arch MI’s Foreclosure Prevention Advance (FPA) Option

Preventing foreclosure and preserving homeownership is important for Arch MI’s customers. Arch MI supports this goal and has come up with a new option to assist Credit Unions in helping members to retain their homes.

With our new Foreclosure Prevention Advance (FPA) option, Arch MI will advance funds to approved servicers of Arch MI-insured loans to cure delinquencies. This is not a replacement for loan modification, but works in conjunction with loan modification to promote long-term member success.

FPA is offered as an option on all Arch MI-insured loans. Servicers must submit a package of qualifying documentation on each delinquent loan for review and approval by Arch MI.

FPA Option Attributes

  • The FPA funds can be used to cure a delinquent loan balance or to create an escrow fund to subsidize the modified monthly payment.
  • Arch MI retains all of its rights under the mortgage insurance policy, including all requirements for loss mitigation.
  • In the event of a future default and claim, FPA funds advanced will be deducted from the final claim settlement.
  • Repayment of the FPA is not required by Arch MI from the member.

For more details, please consult our FPA Option Flyer.
