Fillable Form HUD-1 Settlement Statement

HUD 1 form is used by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. This form is known as a Settlement Statement or Closing Sheet. It will be used when a party is purchasing or refinancing a real estate.


When availing of a mortgage loan, you sometimes become unsure whether you would like to continue with the purchase. Some people are afraid that they might not be able to keep up with the loan payments. For this reason, the state has made mandatory the provision of standard real estate settlement forms to ensure that people who avail of mortgage loans understand the terms and conditions of the loan.

One of the forms used as a standard real estate settlement form is the Form HUD-1 or the Settlement Statement Form.

What is Form HUD-1?

Form HUD-1 or the Settlement Statement Form is a form that summarizes all the fees that a buyer has to pay to a vendor on the day of the settlement. It contains the “terms and conditions” of a settlement

What is a Settlement Form?

It can be used in many instances that would require settlement, but this form is usually filed by lending institutions and is issued to borrowers. Some of the instances in which you will encounter settlement statements are the following: debt settlement, legal settlement, insurance settlement, banking, trading, and business transactions.

Form HUD-1, however, is specifically used for mortgage loans. This form is issued as part of a loan closing (also known as settlement) package, or the final step in the purchase of a mortgage loan.

The Form HUD-1 provides you an overview of the necessary payments you have to make to fulfill the loan. This is to give clarity as soon as possible and to avoid possible misunderstandings about the loan in the future.

This would also serve as proof that you are liable to any missed payments or unfulfilled conditions of the loan.

After signing documents that are part of the “settlement”, you become responsible for the loan.
