Description of the need for the information and proposed use: 24 CFR 200.100—The credit instrument shall be initially and finally endorsed simultaneously for insurance pursuant to a firm commitment to insure upon completion. Advances of construction funds are to be insured pursuant to a firm commitment of insured advances, initial endorsement of the credit instrument shall occur before disbursement of any mortgage proceeds. After all advances of mortgage proceeds, terms, and conditions of the firm commitment are met to the satisfaction of the Department, HUD, will again endorse the credit instrument. Further, the mortgagor must certify at final endorsement of the loan for mortgage insurance that the property covered by the mortgage is free and clear of all liens other than such mortgage, and that there will be no other outstanding unpaid obligations contracted in connection with the mortgage transaction.
Form HUD-92023 is to request final endorsement of the credit instrument by the Department. It is completed by the mortgagee to indicate the schedule of advances made on the project and the final advance to be disbursed immediately upon final endorsement. The reverse side of the form provides for certifications by the mortgagor and the general contractor that there will not be any outstanding unpaid obligations following receipt of the final advance of mortgage proceeds, except such obligations as may be approved by the Commissioner as to term, form and amount.
