Title: 12 CFR, Part 722 of NCUA's Rules and Regulations, Appraisals.
Description: Title XI of the Financial Institutions, Reform, Recovery and Enforcement Act of 1989 (FIRREA) was enacted to protect federal financial and public policy interests in real estate related transactions. To achieve this purpose, the statute directed the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), as one of the federal financial institution regulatory agencies, to adopt standards for the performance of real estate appraisals in connection with federally related transactions. FIRREA requires that appraisals be in writing and meet certain minimum standards. NCUA's regulation carries out the statutory requirements. The information collection activities attributable to the regulation are a direct consequence of the legislative intent and statutory requirements. Each federally-insured credit union uses the information in determining whether and upon what terms to enter into a federally related transaction, such as making a loan secured by real estate. In addition, NCUA uses this information in its examinations of federally-insured credit unions to ensure that extensions of credit by the federally-insured credit union that are collateralized by real estate are undertaken in accordance with appropriate safety and soundness principles. The use of this information by credit unions and the NCUA helps ensure that federally-insured credit unions are not exposed to risk of loss from inadequate appraisals. A federally-insured credit union must obtain an appraisal for real estate-related financial transactions valued in excess of $250,000, unless otherwise exempt.
Estimated No. of Respondents/Recordkeepers: 5,000.
Estimated Burden Hours Per Response: 15 minutes.
Frequency of Response: On occasion, at the time of each appraisal.
Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 187,500.
Estimated Total Annual Cost: $ 0.Start Signature
