Solicitation of Public Comment This notice is soliciting comments from members of the public and affected parties concerning the collection of information described in this notice 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 or any content of the Closing Documents. (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. (5) With respect to the Construction Contract (HUD–92442M) and the HUD Amendment to AIA Document B108 (HUD–92408–M) (‘‘Owner-Architect Agreement’’), are there states with attorney fee shifting statutes that favor contractors and/or architects, such that contractors and/or architects are awarded attorney’s fees when they prevail against owners in litigation, but owners who prevail are not similarly awarded attorney’s fees unless there is VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:15 Oct 28, 2013 Jkt 232001 an explicit provision for such awards in the construction contract or ownerarchitect agreement? If so, does this create an imbalance between the parties that HUD should address in these form documents? Further, irrespective of whether such state fee shifting statutes exist, should the Construction Contract (HUD–92442M) and the HUD Amendment to AIA Document B108 (HUD–92408–M) be revised to include a provision allowing attorney fees to the prevailing party in litigation? (6) Whether the new form, Consolidated Certifications—Borrower (HUD–91070M), improves efficiency by consolidating all the certifications the borrower is required to make in a single form. (7) Whether the new form, Escrow Agreement for Off-site Facilities (HUD– 91071M), effectively streamlines, updates and standardizes an outdated and difficult to locate form used in certain situations when there is required work to be performed away from the HUD project site by combining HUD’s requirements for the escrow for off-site work with the more modern approach taken in HUD’s other escrow forms used in FHA-insured multifamily rental closings. HUD encourages interested parties to submit comment in response to these questions. Authority: Section 3507 of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35.

public comment on HUD's proposed renewal of its currently approved

Control Number and should be sent to: Colette Pollard, Reports

451 7th Street SW., Room 4176, Washington, DC 20410-5000; telephone 
202-402-3400 (this is not a toll-free number) or email at 
Colette.Pollard@hud.gov for a copy of the proposed forms or other 
available information. Persons with hearing or speech impairments may

comments on the FHA multifamily closing documents. HUD will only 
consider proposed changes to the documents listed below that are 
submitted in narrative and/or bulleted form, accompanied by a detailed 
explanation and rationale for each requested change. Commenters may

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 
this notice 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 or any content of the Closing Documents.
    (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.
    (5) With respect to the Construction Contract (HUD-92442M) and the 
HUD Amendment to AIA Document B108 (HUD-92408-M) (``Owner-Architect 
Agreement''), are there states with attorney fee shifting statutes that 
favor contractors and/or architects, such that contractors and/or 
architects are awarded attorney's fees when they prevail against owners 
in litigation, but owners who prevail are not similarly awarded 
attorney's fees unless there is an explicit provision for such awards 
in the construction contract or owner-architect agreement? If so, does 
this create an imbalance between the parties that HUD should address in 
these form documents? Further, irrespective of whether such state fee 
shifting statutes exist, should the Construction Contract (HUD-92442M) 
and the HUD Amendment to AIA Document B108 (HUD-92408-M) be revised to 
include a provision allowing attorney fees to the prevailing party in 
litigation?
    (6) Whether the new form, Consolidated Certifications--Borrower 
(HUD-91070M), improves efficiency by consolidating all the 
certifications the borrower is required to make in a single form.
    (7) Whether the new form, Escrow Agreement for Off-site Facilities 
(HUD-91071M), effectively streamlines, updates and standardizes an 
outdated and difficult to locate form used in certain situations when 
there is required work to be performed away from the HUD project site 
by combining HUD's requirements for the escrow for off-site work with 
the more modern approach taken in HUD's other escrow forms used in FHA-
insured multifamily rental closings.
    HUD encourages interested parties to submit comment in response to 
these questions.

    Authority:  Section 3507 of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995,
