A. Overview of Information Collection

Title of Information Collection: Application for Fee or Roster Personnel (Appraisers and Inspectors) Designation and Appraisal Reports.

OMB Approval Number: 2502-0538.

Type of Request: Extension.

Form Number: HUD 92563A, HUD 92563I, HUD 92564-CN Fannie Mae Forms: 1004, 1004c, 1025, 1073, 1075, 2055 and 1004MC.

Description of the need for the information and proposed use: Accurate and thorough appraisal reporting is critical to the accuracy of underwriting for the mortgage insurance process. The need for accuracy is increased for FHA insured mortgages since buyers tend to have more limited income and lower equity in the properties. This collection of information provides a more thorough and complete appraisal of prospective HUD-insured single-family properties ensuring that mortgages are acceptable for FHA insurance and thereby protect the interest of HUD, the taxpayers, and the FHA insurance fund. The collection allows HUD to maintain an effective appraisal program with the ability to discipline appraisers and inform potential homeowners of the benefits of purchasing an independent home inspection.
