This document provides a recordkeeping checklist for agencies to use in documenting compliance with the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970, as amended (URA).
Good recordkeeping, including a record of contacts with affected persons, is necessary to carry out HUD relocation policies in an effective manner that maintains continuity, regardless of staff turnover.
It is the responsibility of the agency to ensure thorough recordkeeping and must keep records in detail sufficient to demonstrate compliance with applicable laws, regulations, local housing and occupancy codes, and HUD Handbook 1378. Recordkeeping, including a record of all contact with affected persons, is necessary to carry out the URA policies. All records must be retained for the period specified in the program regulations but no less than 3 years after the latest action.
This resource is part of the URA the HUD Way training.
