|FHA Mandatory Updates:
There have been mandatory updates to our Compliance Check feature, and to the MISMO XML coding, in compliance to new FHA updates that are effective immediately.
Also, as a reminder, it is mandatory effective immediately to use the UAD for the 1025 and 1004C forms when doing FHA appraisals, or for any client that requests the UAD be used. After completing your reports for all UAD forms, be sure to use the "Check Compliance" feature and repeat using it until no more correction pop-ups are displayed for the report.
In addition, as a reminder, there was a Compliance Check rule that was added last year to ensure the proper format, placement, and MISMO XML coding of the FHA Case Number. The proper format, placement, and MISMO XML coding of the FHA Case Number is now mandatory effective immediately for all FHA Appraisals.

For the past 16 months, we have been working with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to add a UAD interface for filling out the 1004, 2055, 1073, and 1075 forms including pick lists for the applicable fields. In addition, we have added the Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac standardized delivery format called MISMO 2.6 GSE XML.

Even though the HomePuter® software includes complete instructions and interface, there is also further information and "Training Resources" included at this link.
Because keeping this technology up-to-date and meeting deadlines is important to the appraisal industry, we are licensing it separately to insure that customers are kept up-to-date throughout the year.
