Title of Proposed: Lender Qualifications for multifamily Accelerated Processing

OMB Control number, if Applicable: 2502-XXXX.

Agency Form Number, if Applicable: None.

Description of the Need for the Information and its Proposed Use: FHA-approved mortgagees (lenders) will be required to submit to HUD information to show that they have an experienced multifamily underwriter on staff, and that they have satisfactory record on lending on multifamily housing properties. These additional requirements will enable a qualified lender to take advantage of a mortgage application processing plan that should take substantially less processing time than traditional multifamily mortgage processing where HUD staff prepares many of the processing documents. The information includes (a) identification of the applicant lender; (b) names of those authorized to commit the lender to a mortgage insurance application; (c) copy of approval as an FHA multifamily mortgagee; (d) method of operation in multifamily lending; e.g. whether loans are serviced, and experience in construction loan administration; (e) Experience in multifamily lending, including both conventional lending and FHA insured mortgage lending; (f) experience of key personnel, including underwriter or underwriters; (g) and agreement that the lender will open its files and records to monitoring by HUD staff or one or more loans or originated by the lender under the MAP process.

Need and Use of the Information: The information is needed for HUD to qualify lenders to process applications for mortgage insurance under the Multifamily Accelerated processing guide. Once a lender is approved, its name will be posted on the web. Once approval is given, there are no requirements for further qualifications. Form Number (s): No form required. Qualified lenders will submit exhibits, such as resumes, and use a narrative description. Lender Qualifications are posted on the worldwide web. Chapter 2 of the MAP Guide is posted on worldwide web: The Netsite address is:​fha/​mfh/​map/​mapguide.html

Respondents: Lenders which are approved FHA multifamily mortgagees.
