Can someone other than a Corporate Officer complete the Annual Certification?

The certification must be completed through the Lender Electronic Assessment Portal (LEAP) by a corporate officer of the mortgagee who has been granted the Certifying Official authorization in FHA Connection (FHAC).

The Lender Electronic Assessment Portal (LEAP) User Manual is located at:  http://www.hud.gov/lenders under the LEAP Information link in the Approvals & Renewals section.

Handbook 4000.1 I.A.8.b is available at http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/program_offices/administration/hudclips/handbooks/hsgh.
