SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Title: Interstate Land Sales Full Disclosure Act (Regulations J, K, and L) 12 CFR Part 1010.

OMB Number: 3170-0012.

Abstract: The respondents are land developers (or attorneys or others who work for them). Developers must submit an initial Statement of Record (registration) to the CFPB and receive an effective date before they can offer lots for sale or lease. The Statement of Record includes the proposed property report and additional information and documents that support the developer's disclosures in the property report. The developer is responsible for ensuring that the registration is accurate and does not omit information needed for a purchaser to make an informed decision. Developers must give purchasers an effective property report before the purchaser signs the sales contract. Developers must submit amendments to their registrations if any information in their initial registration changes. They must also submit a consolidated filing if they offer additional lots for sale. Each year the developer must submit an annual financial statement and an annual report that is prepared in the format required by Section 1010.310 of the regulations. A developer may voluntarily suspend his registration by submitting a Voluntary Suspension form or through the Annual Report. There are no other forms. The CFPB conducts a facial review of the submissions. The developer may request an Advisory Opinion if a developer has questions about the applicability of one of the exemptions from registration. A CFPB determination is required only if a developer claims an exemption from registration under the multiple site or substantial compliance exemption. The other 24 exemptions are self-determining. Finally, the CFPB may require additional information from developers in response to investigations of complaints. The Voluntary Suspension form is voluntary and is a convenient way for developers to voluntarily suspend their registration. The form is not required and is not the only way that developers may close their registration. They may also end their registration through their annual report.

Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

Affected Public: Businesses or other for profits.

Estimated Number of Responses: 88,887.

Estimated Time per Response: 23 minutes.

Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 34,563.

Dated: April 6, 2012.

Chris Willey,

Chief Information Officer, Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection.
