What are the recertification requirements to remain on the 203(k) Consultant Roster?

To retain placement on the FHA 203(k) Consultant Roster, the Consultant must recertify every two years from the date of placement on the Roster. The Consultant is required to recertify that they are still in compliance with all laws, regulations, licensing, certification, registration or other approval requirements that govern their ability to perform as a 203(k) Consultant in the states where they do business.
Consultants must submit the required updated certification and attachments to either:
  • email: answers@hud.gov - Subject line: 203(k) Consultant Recertification; or 
  • regular mail:
          U.S. Dept. of HUD
          Attn: 203(k) Consultant Roster

          Washington, DC 20410

Be sure to include your complete contact information.  
203(k) Consultants who fail to meet the recertification requirements will be removed from the 203(k) Consultant Roster. To request reinstatement on the Roster, the Consultant must submit a new application after resolving the issue.
