The Department is submitting the proposed information collection to 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.

Title of Proposal: Deed-in-Lieu of Foreclosure (Corporate Mortgagors or Mortgagors Owning More than One Property.)
OMB Control Number, if applicable: 2502-0301.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: If HUD did not collect this information, the consequence could possibly result in the Department paying claims, which may not be in the best interest of the Secretary. In addition, not requiring the information may encourage mortgagors to use deed-in-lieu methods as a means of disposing of troublesome mortgages/cases.
Agency form numbers, if applicable: None.
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 number of burden hours is 10. The number of respondents is 223, the number of responses is 20, the frequency of response is once, and the burden hour per response is .50.
