Revised government-wide URA regulations were published by the Department of Transportation on January 4, 2005 (effective February 3, 2005). Changes in these regulations which will impact on HUD forms are: Including the cost of professional home inspections in replacement housing payments for homeowners (24.401(e)(4)), and implementing the use of HUD low income limits to determine eligibility for URA benefits applicable to low income persons (24.402(b)(2)). Only the HUD-40054 and 40058 will be affected by these changes and will be revised to conform to the new regulations and improve the flow of the form. The HUD-40055, 40056, and 40057 will be revised to more closely track the existing regulations and improve the flow of the forms. A minor change is being made to the HUD-40061 to eliminate the requirement that the agency make adjustments to the asking price for a property to reflect an anticipated sale price (this requirement was eliminated in the new rule).
