Description of the need for the information and proposed use: Form HUD-2457 provides the standards of performance for conducting surveys and preparing the maps of survey.

Furthermore, a land survey and related information are necessary to secure a marketable title and title insurance for the property that provides security for project mortgage insurance furnished under the FHA Multifamily programs. The Form HUD-2457 describes the property to assure compliance with various regulatory provisions, e.g., flood hazard requirements, and to help determine the suitability and value of the property for the intended purpose. The Form HUD-2457 also provides necessary engineering data for project design for prosed construction projects.

Estimation of the total numbers of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents, frequency of response, and hours of response: The number of respondents is 750, the frequency of responses is 2, for a total of 1,500 total annual responses. The estimated time to prepare collection is approximately 0.5 hours, for a total annual burden hours of 750.
