How does a Mortgagee get a replacement "FHA Approved Lending Institution" Seal?

Mortgagees can request a replacement FHA Approved Lending Institution seal by submitting a Change Request using the Requests – Create New Requests screen in the Lender Electronic Assessment Portal (LEAP).  Select Lender Org Change for Request Type and Ad Hoc for Request Sub Type.  The Ad Hoc request must include: a cover letter on the Mortgagee’s letterhead, signed by a Corporate Officer that explains why a replacement seal is needed. The request must also include the 10-digit FHA Lender ID of the office that needs the seal in order to ensure that only those offices registered with FHA have a seal for display.
