HUD Handbook

HUD Handbook is one of the most common ways to know about various housing, loan and other programs of the Department of Housing and Urban Development in detail. A handbook helps you get updated information regarding new regulatory changes of the department. In most cases, it acts as a complete guide and helps you understand more clearly HUD requirements and processes for the real estate transaction you are interested in. You will also find a relevant handbook immensely helpful while completing a HUD form as per the guidelines of the department.

There are a number of handbooks, each addressing a different aspect of the real estate business involving HUD and sometimes also FHA. Moreover, there may be more than one chapter in a particular handbook with each chapter dealing with a separate aspect of the main topic. For example, the Chapter 3 of the handbook 4350.3, commonly known as HUD Occupancy Handbook, deals with eligibility requirements for assistance and occupancy while the chapter 7 of the same book talks about recertification, unit transfers and gross rent changes. Changes are also made in the contents of handbooks and as a result of this the handbook that is mentioned just now is now available with Change 3 that has happened to it in 2009.

  • Housing Handbook
