We have updated HUD Form 92541 “Builders Certification” (our Cx3971) to mirror the new revision of the form provided by HUD on their website located here. The updates to Cx3971 consists of minor grammatical and formatting changes throughout the document.
There are two notable changes to Cx3971 – the first being the addition of a statement at the beginning of the text that appears after section 12 and 13 (a,b, and c) on page 2, which reads: “I, the undersigned, certify under penalty of perjury that the information provided above is true and correct”, and the second being a modification of the text that prints in the third sentence under the “Direct Endorsement Underwriter”, which changed from: “Only the builder or the builder’s agent is authorized to complete or change this form.” to “The Mortgagee must provide the Appraiser with a fully executed form HUD-92541, signed and dated no more than 30 Days prior to the date the appraisal was ordered.”
These changes will be in effect on August 20, 2019. If you have any questions or concerns about these changes, please contact Client Support at 1.800.497.3584.
