Here is a copy of the checklist of documents that Home Advantage FHA Condo 
Experts requires for FHA approval. With this, we will be on the approved list. 
I don't know if this approval has to be renewed but we keep having to renew the 
documents because they can only be 30 days old. We make to one stage and then 
there is a hold up and we have to redo somethings to get to the next stage. 

This organization only charges you if they actually get the approval — $500 as 
I remember. I assume that means they are also pretty sure you will be approved 
before they take your case. Contact info and checklist are below. They also 
provide sample form letters for the letters people have to write.
