(1) General. After HUD approves the site or property acquisition contract and notifies the PHA that it is authorized to take title, the PHA shall obtain title in accordance with the following certification. The PHA shall certify to HUD that it obtained a title insurance policy that guaranteed that the title was good and marketable before taking title and that it promptly recorded the deed and declaration of trust in the form prescribed by HUD.
(2) Limitation. After HUD notifies a PHA that has been determined to be troubled or modernization troubled in accordance with part 901 of this chapter, or a PHA that has for other reasons been notified in writing that it may not use the procedure specified in paragraph (c)(1) of this section, that the site or property acquisition contract has been approved, the PHA shall submit to HUD evidence that title to the site or property is good and marketable. If HUD approves the title evidence, it will inform the PHA that it is authorized to acquire title to the site or property. The PHA shall record promptly the deed and declaration of trust in the form prescribed by HUD, and HUD may require the PHA to submit evidence of such recordation.
