When a real estate transaction is being conducted, be it a sale, a refinance or new construction (involving a construction loan) the lender will always need a copy the 433A. The 433A is a security item for the lender because once the 433A is recorded the manufactured home becomes part of the real property and is now illegal to remove from the property.
