How will the HUD Certification Label be obtained for appraisals on manufactured homes during the pandemic?

Note: This FAQ comes from the published COVID-19, FAQs on Appraisals

Manufactured home appraisals require specific, and detailed information from the HUD Certification Label. How will the appraiser obtain this information for desktop appraisals and exterior-only inspection appraisals?

For exterior-only inspection appraisals, the appraiser may obtain a photo of the HUD Certification Label, provided they are given permission by the property owner to access the site. For a desktop appraisal, the appraiser may request the owner or an individual that has access to the property to provide a photo of the HUD Certification Label, and deliver it via email or other means to the appraiser.  

With both the desktop and drive-by appraisal, the appraiser may request the borrower, owner, or an individual that has access to the property interior to provide a photo of the HUD Data Plate. The appraiser will need to communicate with the lender or AMC to ensure there is sufficient information available to complete the assignment type ordered. 

For more information, refer to the published Lender Letter LL-2020-04, Impact of COVID-19 on Appraisals.
