If your house loan is FHA certified, that means that it has been guaranteed by the FHA, which is a branch of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). None of the money in the loan is provided by the FHA; what the FHA does is ensure that the loan is secure in case the borrower defaults on his or her loan obligations. Applicable to all purchasers, FHA loan programs are designed to aid credit-worthy low-income and moderate-income families who do not have the qualifications for conventional loans.

The rates on FHA loans are generally market rates, while down payment requirements are lower than for conventional loans. FHA loan programs are particularly beneficial to those consumers with less accessible funding.
