Over the past five years, the US Department of Justice (DOJ) has collected over $4 billion in fines through enforcement of the False Claims Act (FCA) in connection with Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loans. Given this heightened focus on compliance with FHA regulations when originating and servicing these loans—and the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) broad authority to take enforcement action—it is critical to ensure compliance.

This session will look at FCA liability as it relates to FHA loans. In particular, we’ll discuss DOJ investigative practices and the types of issues that have been the subject of these investigations, as well as steps that can be taken to avoid these costly actions. We also will provide you with a brief overview of how HUD enforces its rules, as well as helpful tips on using quality control tactics to ensure compliance.
