SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The OCC is requesting OMB approval for the following information collection:

Title: Domestic First Lien Residential Mortgage Data.

OMB Control Number: To be assigned by OMB.

Description: Comprehensive mortgage data is vital to assessing and monitoring credit quality and loss mitigation activities in the residential mortgage market and the federal banking system. This data is important and necessary to support supervisory activities to ensure the safety and soundness of the federal banking system.

This data collection would include monthly first lien real estate mortgage loan level-data and include origination and servicing information. The reported data items would include: loan number; loan, line and appraisal amounts; loan documentation information; loan-to-value- and debt-to-income ratios; bankruptcy or foreclosure status; and other detailed loan information.

Also, in order to match senior and junior lien residential mortgages on the same collateral, the OCC also would collect additional information on the residential mortgage loans reported in Domestic First Lien Residential Mortgage and the Domestic Residential Home Equity Lending datasets. This data would include: property and mailing address, census tract, liquidation status, and original lien position. By matching the senior and junior liens by property ID, the OCC would gain better insight into the level of risk of both credit types.

Type of Review: Regular review.Start Printed Page 53104

Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 61.

Estimated Annual Responses per Respondent: 12 per year.

Estimated Burden per Response: 430.

Estimated Total Annual Burden: 314,760 hours.

An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection unless the information collection displays a currently valid OMB control number.

Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments become a matter of public record. Comments are invited on:

(a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the OCC, including whether the information shall have practical utility;

(c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected;
