  • Mortgage Status: All payments must be made promptly according to the terms of the the note and mortgage.

  • Federal Financial Reports: Projects must ensure that all financial reports contain reliable data. These reports must be presented according to terms of agreements between HUD and the project owners and managers. If a project experiences management or financial difficulties or is suspected of noncompliance, HUD may require monthly reports.
