Title of Proposal: HUD-Owned Real Estate—Sales Contract and Addendums.
OMB Control Number, if applicable: 2502-0306.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: This collection was formerly titled Single Family Housing Property Disposition and Acquisition (Conveyance) of Mortgaged Properties. HUD published a Federal Register notice soliciting public comments on April 17, 2006 (Vol. 71, No. 73, pages 19746-19746). No Start Printed Page 64551comments were received. Since that publication, however, the information collection request has been disaggregated into three smaller requests: one for the Good Neighbor Next Door Program, one for the Dollar Home Sales Program, and this request. This revision now presents only documents related to the Sales Contract and related addendums. Among the changes are a revised Form HUD-9548, Sales Contract, which brings the form into conformity with current property disposition program practices, a revised HUD 9548-B, Discount Sales Addendum, used for Sales to Nonprofit Organization and Governmental Entities (formerly the Land Use Restriction Addendum), and other addendums relating to lead-based paint. The Sales Contract and related addendums are used as binding contracts between purchasers and HUD and are necessary for the proper disposition of HUD-owned properties.
Agency form numbers, if applicable: HUD-9516-A, HUD-9519, HUD-9519-A, HUD-9544, HUD-9548, HUD-9548-B, HUD-9548-C, HUD-9548-D, HUD-9548-E, HUD-9548-F, HUD-9548-G, HUD-9549-H, HUD-9545-Y, and HUD-9545-Z.
Estimation of the total number of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents, frequency of response, and hours of response: The estimated number of burden hours needed to prepare the information collection is 68,950 hours; the number of respondents is approximately 13,137, generating approximately 165,775 annual responses; the frequency of response is “on occasion”; and the estimated time needed to prepare the response varies from 6 minutes to 30 minutes per response.
Status of the proposed information collection: This is a revision of currently approved collection. The revision is necessary to disaggregate information collection related to the Good Neighbor Next Door Program and the Dollar Home Sales Program.Start Signature
