HUD Approves the HUD-NPMA-99A and the HUD-NPMA-99B FormsThe U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has approved the use of the new HUD-NPMA-99A and HUD-NPMA-99B. The use of the forms is authorized immediately and existing stocks of the previous forms, NPCA-99a and NPCA-99b, may be used until supplies are exhausted; however, some lenders may require the new forms immediately. The new forms expire February 29, 2012.
The HUD-NPMA-99A, called the Subterranean Termite Protection Builder's Guarantee, is completed by the builder and specifies whether the work was done by the pest control company or the builder (in the rare case of using extensive pressure treated lumber as termite prevention). The form clearly delineates the responsibilities of the builder and the builder must guarantee that any work done complies with the building code.
The HUD-NPMA-99B, now called the New Construction Subterranean Termite Service Record, is completed by the pest control company and now includes all code-accepted methods into one service record. The code-accepted methods include Soil Applied Liquid Termiticide, Wood Applied Liquid Termiticide, Bait System Installed, and Physical Barrier System Installed.
The new forms may be purchased online from NPMA at www.bugstore.org or by calling the Resource Center directly at 703-352-6762.
