This reality show couple financed their home with an FHA loan. The Federal Housing Authority (FHA) is a government program to assist lower income families in purchasing a home (usually their first home). The government (that would be our tax dollars) insures the loan with the lender in case the purchaser ends up not being able to pay the mortgage. If the purchaser defaults, the FHA (that would be you) pays out the loan to the lender and Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) puts the house on the market as a HUD home.
In this case of this now unmarried couple, who have also filed for bankruptcy after first “divorcing” to separate assets, they left a mysterious hole in the living room ceiling. Wonder what was up there? The home is now listed for sale on the HUD website.
