This notice includes a list of mortgagees which have had their Origination Approval Agreements terminated. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The Quality Assurance Division, Office of Housing, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Room B133–P3214, Washington, DC 20410–8000; telephone (202) 708– 2830 (this is not a toll-free number). Persons with hearing or speech impairments may access that number through TTY by calling the Federal Information Relay Service at (800) 877– 8339. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: HUD has the authority to address deficiencies in the performance of lenders’ loans as provided in HUD’s mortgagee approval regulations at 24 CFR 202.3. On May 17, 1999 HUD published a notice (64 FR 26769), on its procedures for terminating Origination Approval Agreements with FHA lenders and placement of FHA lenders on Credit Watch status (an evaluation period). In the May 17, 1999 notice, HUD advised Mortgagee name Universal American Mortgage Co.. Capital Financial Mortgage Corp.. VerDate Mar<15>2010 that it would publish in the Federal Register a list of mortgagees, which have had their Origination Approval Agreements terminated. Termination of Origination Approval Agreement: Approval of a mortgagee by HUD/FHA to participate in FHA mortgage insurance programs includes an Origination Approval Agreement (Agreement) between HUD and the mortgagee. Under the Agreement, the mortgagee is authorized to originate single-family mortgage loans and submit them to FHA for insurance endorsement. The Agreement may be terminated on the basis of poor performance of FHA-insured mortgage loans originated by the mortgagee. The termination of a mortgagee’s Agreement is separate and apart from any action taken by HUD’s Mortgagee Review Board under HUD’s regulations at 24 CFR part 25. Cause: HUD’s regulations permit HUD to terminate the Agreement with any mortgagee having a default and claim rate for loans endorsed within the preceding 24 months that exceeds 200 percent of the default and claim rate within the geographic area served by a HUD field office, and also exceeds the national default and claim rate. For the 44th review period, HUD is terminating the Agreement of mortgagees whose default and claim rate exceeds both the national rate and 200 percent of the field office rate. Effect: Termination of the Agreement precludes that branch(es) of the mortgagee from originating FHA-insured single-family mortgages within the area of the HUD field office(s) listed in this notice. Mortgagees authorized to purchase, hold, or service FHA insured mortgages may continue to do so. Loans that closed or were approved before the termination became effective may be submitted for insurance endorsement. Approved loans are those already underwritten and approved by a DE underwriter, and cases covered by a firm commitment issued by HUD. Cases at earlier stages of processing cannot be submitted for insurance by the terminated branch; however, they may be transferred for completion of processing and underwriting to another FHA insured mortgagee with direct endorsement approval for the area covered by the termination. Mortgagees are obligated to continue to pay existing insurance premiums and meet all other obligations associated with insured mortgages. A terminated mortgagee may apply for reinstatement of the Origination Approval Agreement if the Approval for the affected branch or branches has been terminated for at least six months and the mortgagee continues to be an approved mortgagee meeting the requirements of 24 CFR 202.5, 202.6, 202.7, 202.8 and 202.12. However, Mortgagee Letter 2010–20 and Final Rule 5356–F–02 at 24 CFR 202 eliminates FHA approval for loan correspondents after December 31, 2010. Therefore, HUD will not accept requests for reinstatement from loan correspondents after that date. The mortgagee’s application for reinstatement must be in a format prescribed by the Secretary and signed by the mortgagee. In addition, the application must be accompanied by an independent analysis of the terminated office’s operations as well as its mortgage production, specifically including the FHA-insured mortgages cited in its termination notice. This independent analysis shall identify the underlying cause for the mortgagee’s high default and claim rate. The analysis must be prepared by an independent Certified Public Accountant (CPA) qualified to perform audits under Government Auditing Standards as provided by the Government Accountability Office. The mortgagee must also submit a written corrective action plan to address each of the issues identified in the CPA’s report, along with evidence that the plan has been implemented. The application for a new Agreement should be in the form of a letter, accompanied by the CPA’s report and corrective action plan. The request should be sent to the Director, Office of Lender Activities and Program Compliance, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Room B133–P3214, Washington, DC 20410–8000 or by courier to 490 L’Enfant Plaza, East, SW., Suite 3214, Washington, DC 20024–8000.

On January 21, 2010 HUD issued Mortgagee Letter 2010–03 which advised the extended procedures for terminating Underwriting Authority of Direct Endorsement mortgagees. Termination of Direct Endorsement Approval: Approval of a DE mortgagee by HUD/FHA authorizes the mortgagee to underwrite single family mortgage loans and submit them to FHA for insurance endorsement. The Approval may be terminated on the basis of poor performance of FHA-insured mortgage loans underwritten by the mortgagee. The termination of a mortgagee’s DE Approval is separate and apart from any action taken by HUD’s Mortgagee Review Board under HUD’s regulations at 24 CFR part 25.

For quarterly review period ending March 31, 2010, HUD is terminating the DE Approval of mortgagees whose default and claim rate exceeds both the national rate and 300 percent of the field office rate.

AGENCY: Office of the Assistant Secretary for Housing--Federal Housing 
Commissioner, HUD.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This notice advises of the cause and effect of termination of 
Origination Approval Agreements taken by HUD's Federal Housing 
Administration (FHA) against HUD-approved mortgagees through the FHA 
Credit Watch Termination Initiative. This notice includes a list of 
mortgagees which have had their Origination Approval Agreements 
terminated.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The Quality Assurance Division, Office 
of Housing, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh 
Street, SW., Room B133-P3214, Washington, DC 20410-8000; telephone

or speech impairments may access that number through TTY by calling the 
Federal Information Relay Service at (800) 877-8339.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: HUD has the authority to address 
deficiencies in the performance of lenders' loans as provided in HUD's 
mortgagee approval regulations at 24 CFR 202.3. On May 17, 1999 HUD 
published a notice (64 FR 26769), on its procedures for terminating 
Origination Approval Agreements with FHA lenders and placement of FHA 
lenders on Credit Watch status (an evaluation period). In the May 17, 
1999 notice, HUD advised that it would publish in the Federal Register 
a list of mortgagees, which have had their Origination Approval 
Agreements terminated.
    Termination of Origination Approval Agreement: Approval of a 
mortgagee by HUD/FHA to participate in FHA mortgage insurance programs 
includes an Origination Approval Agreement (Agreement) between HUD and 
the mortgagee. Under the Agreement, the mortgagee is authorized to 
originate single-family mortgage loans and submit them to FHA for 
insurance endorsement. The Agreement may be terminated on the basis of 
poor performance of FHA-insured mortgage loans originated by the 
mortgagee. The termination of a mortgagee's Agreement is separate and 
apart from any action taken by HUD's Mortgagee Review Board under HUD's 
regulations at 24 CFR part 25.
    Cause: HUD's regulations permit HUD to terminate the Agreement with 
any mortgagee having a default and claim rate for loans endorsed within 
the preceding 24 months that exceeds 200 percent of the default and 
claim rate within the geographic area served by a HUD field office, and 
also exceeds the national default and claim rate. For the 44th review 
period, HUD is terminating the Agreement of mortgagees whose default 
and claim rate exceeds both the national rate and 200 percent of the 
field office rate.
    Effect: Termination of the Agreement precludes that branch(es) of 
the mortgagee from originating FHA-insured single-family mortgages 
within the area of the HUD field office(s) listed in this notice. 
Mortgagees authorized to purchase, hold, or service FHA insured 
mortgages may continue to do so.
    Loans that closed or were approved before the termination became 
effective may be submitted for insurance endorsement. Approved loans 
are those already underwritten and approved by a DE underwriter, and 
cases covered by a firm commitment issued by HUD. Cases at earlier 
stages of processing cannot be submitted for insurance by the 
terminated branch; however, they may be transferred for completion of 
processing and underwriting to another FHA insured mortgagee with 
direct endorsement approval for the area covered by the termination. 
Mortgagees are obligated to continue to pay existing insurance premiums 
and meet all other obligations associated with insured mortgages.
    A terminated mortgagee may apply for reinstatement of the 
Origination Approval Agreement if the Approval for the affected branch 
or branches has been terminated for at least six months and the 
mortgagee continues to be an approved mortgagee meeting the 
requirements of 24 CFR 202.5, 202.6, 202.7, 202.8 and 202.12. However, 
Mortgagee Letter 2010-20 and Final Rule 5356-F-02 at 24 CFR 202 
eliminates FHA approval for loan correspondents after December 31, 
2010. Therefore, HUD will not accept requests for reinstatement from 
loan correspondents after that date. The mortgagee's application for 
reinstatement must be in a format prescribed by the Secretary and 
signed by the mortgagee. In addition, the application must be 
accompanied by an independent analysis of the terminated office's 
operations as well as its mortgage production, specifically including 
the FHA-insured mortgages cited in its termination notice. This 
independent analysis shall identify the underlying cause for the 
mortgagee's high default and claim rate. The analysis must be prepared 
by an independent Certified Public Accountant (CPA) qualified to 
perform audits under Government Auditing Standards as provided by the 
Government Accountability Office. The mortgagee must also submit a 
written corrective action plan to address each of the issues identified 
in the CPA's report, along with evidence that the plan has been 
implemented. The application for a new Agreement should be in the form 
of a letter, accompanied by the CPA's report and corrective action 
plan. The request should be sent to the Director, Office of Lender 
Activities and Program Compliance, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Room B133-
P3214, Washington, DC 20410-8000 or by courier to 490 L'Enfant Plaza, 
East, SW., Suite 3214, Washington, DC 20024-8000.
