Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The documents requested are used to determine the eligibility of a reverse mortgage loan application and property requirements for FHA's mortgage insurance. This collection also ocntains disclosure requirements that will provide the prospective borrower with statutory and regulatory information needed to explain the financial implications of and alternatives to a HECM; the costs associated with obtaining a reverse mortgage; due and payable conditions and other relevant information necessary to determine if this type of mortgage transaction is for the sole benefit of the borrower. Without these documents, HUD would have difficulty in determining the eligibility of a loan application and property, thus, jeopardize the insurance fund.
