The Department is submitting the proposed information collection of OMB for review, as required by the paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. chapter 35, as amended).
This notice is soliciting comments from members of the public and affected agencies concerning the proposed collection of information to: (1) Evaluate whether the proposed collection is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond; including the use of appropriate automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.
This notice also lists the following information:
Title of Proposal: Mortgage Record Change.
OMB Control Number, if applicable: 2502-0422.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The Mortgage Record change information is used by FHA-approved mortgagees to comply with HUD requirements for reporting the sale of a mortgage between investors, 24 CFR 203.431, and/or the transfer of the mortgage servicing responsibility, 24 CFR 203.502, as appropriate. The information required is used to update HUD's Single Family Insurance System and other related systems. Current data is necessary to establish mortgage premium liability, forward annual premium mortgage data to the appropriate mortgagee/servicer, and maintain premium receivables and program data regarding investors/servicer activity. Without the required data, the premium collection/monitoring function would be severely impeded and program data would be unreliable. This information is essential because HUD does case level accounting in recording premium payments by mortgagees.
Agency form numbers, if applicable: Not applicable. Form HUD-92080 is now obsolete.
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 public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.1 hour per response, including the time for reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering and maintaining the data needed, and completing and reviewing the collection of information. The number of respondents is approximately 9,100, the frequency of response is as required, and the volume per respondent is 20-20,000 annually.
Status of the proposed information collection: Extension of a currently approved collection.Start Signature
