What changes have been made to the condominium Forms HUD-9991, FHA Condominium Loan Level/Single-Unit Approval Questionnaire, and HUD-9992, FHA Condominium Project Approval Questionnaire?

HUD has made updates to both forms, which includes the consolidation and elimination of questions as well as restructuring the forms to be more user-friendly.

As announced in Mortgagee Letter 2021-09, Mortgagees may utilize the revised forms immediately. However, Mortgagees must:
  • use the revised Form HUD-9991, FHA Condominium Loan Level/Single-Unit Approval Questionnaire, for case numbers assigned on or after May 17, 2021, and
  • use the revised Form HUD-9992, FHA Condominium Project Approval Questionnaire, for initial project approval and recertifications submitted to HUD on or after May 17, 2021.

The following is a list of the changes that have been made to both forms and specific changes made to each form individually.

Major changes made to both forms include:
  • Allowing data collected on the questionnaire to be no more than 90 days old prior to the questionnaire being signed.
