We are reminding our clients that, pursuant to HUD requirements, FHA case numbers assigned on or after March 22, 2021, will require the revised HUD 92009-A form on all Single-Family Forward Mortgages and Home Equity Conversion Mortgages (HECM). Plaza’s BREEZE LOS already supports the new 92009-A form, and can also generate and deliver the new 1003, plus typical broker disclosures, quickly and easily.
