Title: Statement of Holder or Servicer of Veteran's Loan, VA Form Letter 26-559.

OMB Control Number: 2900-0112.

Type of Review: Reinstatement, without change, of a previously approved collection for which approval has expired.

Abstract: Veteran-borrowers may sell their homes subject to the existing VA-guaranteed mortgage lien without prior approval of VA if the commitment for the loan was made prior to March 1, 1988. However, if they request release from personal liability to the Government in the event of a subsequent default by a transferee, VA must determine that (1) loan payments are current; (2) the transferee will assume the veteran's legal liabilities in connection with the loan; and (3) the purchaser qualifies from a credit standpoint. A veteran-borrower also may sell his or her home to a veteran-transferee. However, eligible transferees must meet all the requirements in addition to having sufficient available loan guaranty entitlement to replace the amount of entitlement used by the seller in obtaining the original loan.

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. The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on this collection of information was published on March 27, 2000, at page 16245.

Affected Public: Individuals or households, Business or other for-profit.

Estimated Annual Burden: 1,167 hours.

Estimated Average Burden Per Respondent: 10 minutes.

Frequency of Response: On occasion.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 7,000.
