Survey.
    OMB Control Number: 2528-0276.
    Type of Review: Regular Submission.
    Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The 
Rental Housing Finance Survey (RHFS) provides a measure of financial, 
mortgage, and property characteristics of rental housing properties in 
the United States. The RHFS focuses on mortgage financing of rental 
housing properties, with emphasis on new originations for purchase-
money mortgages and refinancing, and the characteristics of these new 
originations.
    The 2015 RHFS will collect data on property values of residential 
structures, characteristics of residential structures, rental status 
and rental value of units within the residential structures, commercial 
use of space within residential structures, property management status, 
ownership status, a detailed assessment of mortgage financing, and

    Many of the questions are the same or similar to those found on the

the 2001 Residential Finance Survey, and the 2012 RHFS. This survey 
does not duplicate work done in other existent HUD surveys or studies

and legislative branches about the mortgage finance characteristics of 
the rental housing stock in the United States and the suitability of 
public policy initiatives. Academic researchers and private 
organizations will also be able to utilize the data to facilitate their 
research and projects.
    HUD needs the RHFS data for the following two reasons:
    1. This is the only source of information on the rental housing 
finance characteristics of rental properties.
    2. To gain a better understanding of the mortgage finance 
characteristics of the rental housing stock in the United States to 
evaluate, monitor, and design HUD programs.

managers of rental properties)
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 9,313.

of their time. The total estimated cost is $6,900,000.
    Respondent's Obligation: Voluntary.
    Legal Authority: Title 13 U.S.C. Section 9(a), and Title 12, 
U.S.C., Section 1701z-1 et seq.
