Forms Redesign Extended Into 2023-24
What once was a ‘three year’ project to redesign and implement revised appraisal forms has morphed into one taking far longer. Actual implementation and use of ‘new forms’ are not scheduled to happen until (presumably) early in 2024, but could be extended even further.
By 2024, the currently used ‘forms’ will be 19 years old, and the current UAD overlay entering ‘teenage hood’ at 13.
For context, the current Planet Mars Perseverance Rover mission to successfully plan and land scientific instruments took only 9 years!
Details for the ‘forms redesign extension’ are based on the announcement from Fannie Mae (and Freddie Mac) on Wed, Mar. 24, 2021:
“The UAD and Forms Redesign is well underway, but there is much more work to do. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have posted a high-level timeline showing key milestones and date ranges in this multi-year endeavor that will continue into 2024 and beyond. Check out the UAD page for other related resources.”
