Download as PDF 73788 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 238 / Tuesday, December 13, 2005 / Notices Closings are scheduled to occur on December 21, 2005. These are the essential terms of sale. The Loan Sale Agreement, which will be included in the BIP, will contain additional terms and details. To ensure a competitive bidding process, the terms of the bidding process and the Loan Sale Agreement are not subject to negotiation. Due Diligence Review The BIP will describe the due diligence process for reviewing loan files in MHLS 2005–3. Qualified bidders will be able to access loan information remotely via a high-speed Internet connection. Further information on performing due diligence review of the Mortgage Loans will be provided in the BIP. Mortgage Loan Sale Policy HUD reserves the right to add Mortgage Loans to or delete Mortgage Loans from MHLS 2005–3 at any time prior to the Award Date. HUD also reserves the right to reject any and all bids, in whole or in part, without prejudice to HUD’s right to include any Mortgage Loans in a later sale. Mortgage Loans will not be withdrawn after the Award Date except as is specifically provided in the Loan Sale Agreement. This is a sale of unsubsidized mortgage loans. Pursuant to the Multifamily Mortgage Sale Regulations, 24 CFR 290.30 et seq., the Mortgage Loans will be sold without FHA insurance. Consistent with HUD’s policy as set forth in 24 CFR 290.35, HUD is unaware of any Mortgage Loan that is delinquent and secures a project (1) for which foreclosure appears unavoidable, and (2) in which very-low income tenants reside who are not receiving housing assistance and who would be likely to pay rent in excess of 30 percent of their adjusted monthly income if HUD sold the Mortgage Loan. If HUD determines that any Mortgage Loans meet these criteria, they will be removed from the sale. Mortgage Loan Sale Procedure HUD selected a competitive sale as the method to sell the Mortgage Loans primarily to satisfy the Mortgage Sale Regulations. This method of sale optimizes HUD’s return on the sale of these Mortgage Loans, affords the greatest opportunity for all qualified bidders to bid on the Mortgage Loans, and provides the quickest and most efficient vehicle for HUD to dispose of the Mortgage Loans. VerDate Aug<31>2005 00:22 Dec 13, 2005 Jkt 208001 Bidder Eligibility In order to bid in the sale, a prospective bidder must complete, execute and submit both a Confidentiality Agreement and a Qualification Statement acceptable to HUD. The following individuals and entities are ineligible to bid on any of the Mortgage Loans included in MHLS 2005–3: (1) Any employee of HUD, a member of such employee’s household, or an entity owned or controlled by any such employee or member of such an employee’s household; (2) any individual or entity that is debarred, suspended, or excluded from doing business with HUD pursuant to Title 24 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 24; (3) any contractor, subcontractor and/ or consultant or advisor (including any agent, employee, partner, director, principal or affiliate of any of the foregoing) who performed services for or on behalf of HUD in connection with MHLS 2005–3; (4) any individual who was a principal, partner, director, agent or employee of any entity or individual described in subparagraph 3 above, at any time during which the entity or individual performed services for or on behalf of HUD in connection with MHLS 2005–3; (5) any individual or entity that uses the services, directly or indirectly, of any person or entity ineligible under subparagraphs 1 through 4 above to assist in preparing any of its bids on the Mortgage Loans; (6) any individual or entity which employs or uses the services of an employee of HUD (other than in such employee’s official capacity) who is involved in MHLS 2005–3; (7) any mortgagor (or affiliate of a mortgagor) that failed to submit to HUD on or before November 30, 2005, audited financial statements for 1998 through 2004 for a project securing a Mortgage Loan; and (8) any individual or entity and any Related Party (as such term is defined in the Qualification Statement) of such individual or entity that is a mortgagor in any of HUD’s multifamily housing programs and that is in default under such mortgage loan or is in violation of any regulatory or business agreements with HUD, unless such default or violation is cured on or before November 30, 2005. In addition, any entity or individual that serviced or held any Mortgage Loan at any time during the two-year period prior to November 30, 2005, is ineligible to bid on such Mortgage Loan or on the PO 00000 Frm 00069 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 pool containing such Mortgage Loan, but may bid on loan pools that do not contain Mortgage Loans that they have serviced or held at any time during the two-year period prior to November 30, 2005. Also ineligible to bid on any Mortgage Loan are: (a) Any affiliate or principal of any entity or individual described in the preceding sentence; (b) any employee or subcontractor of such entity or individual during that two-year period; or (c) any entity or individual that employs or uses the services of any other entity or individual described in this paragraph in preparing its bid on such Mortgage Loan. Prospective bidders should carefully review the Qualification Statement to determine whether they are eligible to submit bids on the Mortgage Loans in MHLS 2005–3. Freedom of Information Act Requests HUD reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to disclose information regarding MHLS 2005–3, including, but not limited to, the identity of any successful bidder and its bid price or bid percentage for any pool of loans or individual loan, upon the closing of the sale of all the Mortgage Loans. Even if HUD elects not to publicly disclose any information relating to MHLS 2005–3, HUD will have the right to disclose any information that HUD is obligated to disclose pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act and all regulations promulgated thereunder. Scope of Notice This notice applies to MHLS 2005–3 and does not establish HUD’s policy for the sale of other mortgage loans. Dated: December 4, 2005. Brian D. Montgomery, Assistant Secretary for Housing—Federal Housing Commissioner. [FR Doc.
