Description of the need for the information and proposed use: Lenders are required to provide form 92051 to the borrower if there are health and safety items that need to be repaired before the property can be insured by FHA. Most repair items are repaired before the loan closes. Form 92051 is only used when there are items that need repair after closing or for an inspection of new construction in a jurisdiction that does not issue building permits. Form 92300 is used by the lender to notify FHA that funds have been retained in escrow for payment of the repairs.

Agency form numbers, if applicable: 92051, 92300.

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 number of burden hours is 1,984. The number of respondents is 5668, the number of responses is 11,336, the frequency of response is on occasion, and the burden hour per response is .10 to .25 hours.

Status of the proposed information collection: This is a revision of a currently approved collection.
