SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This notice informs the public that HUD is seeking approval from OMB for the information collection described in Section A.

A. Overview of Information Collection

Title of Information Collection: Condominium Project Approval Document Collection.

OMB Approval Number: 2502-0610.

Type of Request: Revision of current collection.

Form Number: HUD-92541; HUD-935.2c; HUD 93201; and HUD-92544.

Description of the need for the information and proposed use:

The Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 (HERA) moved the insurance of a single unit condominium from Section 234 to Section 203 of the National Housing Act (NHA). This change required that HUD establish new regulations for condominium project and unit approval. To approve a project and/or insure a unit within an FHA-approved project, certain documentation and data are required for review and approval or denial. Therefore, requiring a specific collection item is appropriate. Further, the information collected will be used for performance, risk, market trending, and other analyses.

Respondents (i.e., affected public): Mortgagees, Condominium Associations, Builders, Developers, Attorneys, Management Companies, Project Consultants.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 10,000.

Estimated Number of Responses: 10,000.

Frequency of Response: Biennially.

Average Hours per Response: 3.

Total Estimated Burdens: $3,173,000.

B. Solicitation of Public Comment

This notice is soliciting comments from members of the public and affected parties concerning the collection of information described in Section A on the following:

(1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility;

(2) The accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information;

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

(4) Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond; including through the use of appropriate automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.
