HUD 232/223(a)(7) Refinancing

HUD-Insured Refinancing for Current HUD 232 or HUD 232/223(f) Borrowers

If you already own a senior living, assisted living, or skilled nursing facility that you built or purchased with a HUD 232 loan or a HUD 232/233(f) loan, but you want a lower interest rate or an extension on your loan term, you're in luck-- because the HUD 232/223(a)(7) refinancing program is designed for exactly that purpose. Like other forms of HUD multifamily financing, 232/223(a)(7) loans are fully assumable and non-recourse-- but, unlike other HUD multifamily loans, these loans require very little paperwork and only one third party report.
