Title: Notice for Election to Convey and/or Invoice for Transfer of Property, VA Form 26-8903.

OMB Control Number: 2900-0381 .

Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

Abstract: Section 3732 of Title 38, U.S.C., and 38 CFR 36.4320(a)(1), provides that if a minimum amount for credit to the borrower's indebtedness has been specified by VA in relation to the sale of the real property and the holder is the successful bidder at the sale for no more than the amount specified by the Secretary, the holder will credit the indebtedness with that amount. The holder may then retain the property, or not later than 15 days after the date of sale, advise the Secretary of its election to convey and transfer the property to the Secretary. VA Form 26-8903 serves four purposes: holder's election to convey; invoice for the purchase price of the property; VA's voucher for authorizing payment to the holder; and establishment of the VA's property records. The form provides the holder, who has elected to convey a property to the VA, with a convenient and uniform means of notification to the proper VA regional office. This form simplifies processing for lenders/holders who, in most instances, operate branch offices statewide and nationwide.

An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.
