If HUD uses this option, how can it manage risk associated with this concept? Should HUD continue to permit all fees to be financed or should it establish a maximum amount that can be financed in the 203(k) loan? If HUD uses this option what should be used to establish the financeable portion of the fee? Would requiring the Borrower to pay the excess fees adversely limit the number of Section 203(k) loan origination? Would this method of setting fees lead to an increase in the number of loans with negative equity? Would this method of setting fees lead to an increase in the number of loans with negative equity and how could HUD protect against this? 3. Develop a different metric on which to base Consultant fees. Under this option, Consultants’ fees would be based on a metric other than cost of repairs. For example, HUD could set fees based on a straight percentage of the repair amount or a fixed fee plus a percentage of the repair amount. If HUD uses this option, at what level should HUD set the amount? Would this option allow for regional differences in the cost of services or in the variation and complexity of services provided in a specific loan transaction? Are there other metrics upon which HUD could base Consultant fees? If so, what are the pros and cons of each metric? 4. Index Section 203(k) Consultant fees to another measure. Under this option, Consultant fees could be tied to Consumer Price Index or the Annual Rate of Inflation. HUD could then revise the fees under such measure and alert the public by Mortgagee Letter or Handbook publication. What are the pros and cons of tying the 203(k) Consultant fee schedule to either of these two measures? Are there other measures that would more accurately establish maximum fees? Would there be any reason for HUD to establish a maximum amount of the fee that can be financed into the 203(k) mortgage using either of these measures? Dated: August 26, 2016. Edward L. Golding, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Housing.
