Title of Proposal: Mortgage Insurance Termination; Application for Premium Refund or Distributive Share Payment.
OMB Control Number, if applicable: 2502-0414.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The information collection for the Mortgage Insurance Termination is used by Federal Housing Administration (FHA) approved mortgagees to comply with HUD requirements for reporting the termination of FHA mortgage insurance on single family dwellings (24 CFR 203.318). The form HUD-27050-A is now obsolete. However, the information collection is still in effect and is collected electronically through Electronic Data Interchange and via FHA Connection. The Application for Premium Refund or Distributive Share Payment is used by former FHA mortgagors to apply for homeowner refunds of the unearned portion of the mortgage insurance premium or a distributive share payment (24 CFR 203.423, 24 CFR 203.283, and 24 CFR 203.284).
Agency form numbers, if applicable: HUD-27050-A (Submitted electronically) and HUD-27050-B (System generated).
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 estimated total number of burden hours needed to prepare the information collection is 157,932; the number of respondents is 462,349 generating approximately 1,004,407 annual responses; the frequency of response is on occasion for mortgagors and varies for lenders; and the estimated time needed to prepare the response is 5 minutes for lenders and 15 minutes for mortgagors.
Status of the proposed information collection: This is an extension of a currently approved collection.Start Signature
