Yes. HUD-Registered Real Estate Brokers must be recertified by HUD each year to sell HUD Homes. Name and Address Identification Number (NAID) certifications for Selling Brokers are valid for only one year from the date of issuance.
Note: Do not wait until your recertification date to recertify your NAID. Be sure to recertify in advance of that date to ensure your NAID remains active since some changes may require that HUD reviews your uploaded documents and will (in the case of a broker change) require new E-Signature documents to be signed.
To verify your NAID status and your NAID recertification date,
- Go to the HUD Homestore website at: https://www.hudhomestore.com/Listing/NaidRecertification.aspx?sLanguage=ENGLISH
- Click the Check Recertification Date button and enter your NAID number.
- Click Submit.
Using Google Chrome is strongly recommended when accessing the NAID Application Portal.
Online videos and a copy of the NAID Application Portal User Guide for Selling Brokers containing detailed instruction on using the NAID Application Portal are provided at: https://www.hudhomestore.com/ListingSiteFAQ.htm for your reference.
If you are unable to find your NAID please call the FHA Resource Center at 1-800-225-5342.
Real Estate Broker recertification policy is in Handbook 4000.1, Section I.B.5.d. at: https://www.hud.gov/program_offices/administration/hudclips/handbooks/hsgh
