Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) Counseling Standardization and Roster
This proposed rule would amend HUD's HECM regulations to establish testing standards to qualify individuals as HECM counselors eligible to provide HECM counseling to prospective HECM borrowers. The rule also would establish a roster of eligible HECM counselors and provide for their removal for cause. HUD believes that this proposed rule would contribute to improving the quality of HECM counseling. HECM counseling helps to enable elderly homeowners to make more informed decisions when considering whether to pursue a HECM loan.
