Title of Proposal: Quality Control Requirements for Direct Endorsement Lenders.

OMB Control Number, if applicable: 2502—NEW.

Description of the need for the information and proposed use: As of January 1, 2011, mortgagees that were previously approved as loan correspondents will be able to participate as Third Party Originators (TPOs) in FHA-insured mortgage transactions only if the conditions outlined in 24 CFR 202.8 are met. Per 24 CFR 202.8 (3) DE lenders which sponsor TPOs are responsible to the Secretary for the actions of third party originators or mortgagees in originating loans or mortgages, unless applicable law or regulation requires specific knowledge on the part of the party to be held responsible. As a result, DE lenders will be responsible for conducting quality control on TPO originations of FHA-insured mortgage loans, and ensuring that their QC plan is expanded to contain this oversight provision. This will create an additional information collection burden on DE lenders, since these institutions must also conduct quality control on all loans they originate and underwrite.

Agency form numbers, if applicable: Not applicable.

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 91,515. The number of respondents is 1,853, the number of responses is 169,158, the frequency of response is annually, and the burden hour per response is 1.5.

Status of the proposed information collection: This is a new collection.
