Call To Action: HUD Wants To Cripple Owner Financing

HUD has proposed to eliminate ALL seller financing unless the seller lives in the home or becomes a licensed mortgage originator.

SEE BELOW FOR SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO COMMENT.

"In addition to establishing HUD's responsibilities under the SAFE Act, through this rule, HUD proposes to clarify or interpret certain statutory provisions that pertain to the scope of the SAFE Act licensing requirements, and other requirements that pertain to the implementation, oversight, and enforcement responsibilities of the States. HUD solicits comment on the proposed clarifications and on the regulations proposed to be codified."


History:
As you may recall, we lobbied hard last year to maintain the right for individuals to make up to five seller financed transactions per year before being subject to mortgage originator licensing, etc. However, that law was passed subject to the Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) approval of the law as "compliant" with the intention of the federal law. If any state does not have a compliant law, the SAFE act allows HUD to implement licensing for the state. HUD has since issued proposed rules. In a nutshell, seller financing would no longer be allowed for non-owner occupied homes.


How YOU can help:


We learned about the publishing of the rules very late in the process... and the deadline for comment is upon us on February 16. However, we desperately need thousands of seller finance professionals across the country to go on record with HUD on this issue. We will be working to try to affect this law in other legislative ways, but cannot hope to gain traction unless you have clearly communicated you are opposed to this portion of the rules. This is your chance to be counted on this issue.

PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR COMMENTS TO HUD! We have only ONE MORE DAY to flood this system with comments.

Follow these simple steps:

1. Logon to www.regulations.gov You will see two white boxes for searching.

2. On the left box labeled "Document Type", pull the menu down and select "proposed rules."

3. On the right box labeled "Enter keyword or ID", enter "safe mortgage". Then, press search.

4. Locate the blue search result "FR-5271-P-01 Safe Mortgage Licensing Act: HUD Responsibilities Under ...." To read the rules, click on this title. You will be taken to another page. You will see "views". You can click on PDF file or another symbol which will show you the rule document online.

5. On the right of the screen, click on "submit comment."

6. Complete the form providing required information and your comments and then submit

7. PLEASE FORWARD THIS E-MAIL TO EVERYONE IN YOUR ADDRESS BOOK, AND ASK THME TO DO THE SAME.

What do you say?


Say what you feel, but say it politely! The message should include that you would like the definitions in the proposed rules to be changed so that private individuals can originate and service loans on properties they personally own. Some ideas from others:

bank loans are not available on some types of properties
the tight lending climate has made bank financing "out of reach" for many
seller financing is an "age old" tradition based on private property rights
these rules would prohibit even partial seller financing - i.e. a "seller second"
according to HUD's "Residential Finance Survey" in 2001, roughly 40% of all non-farm residential properties in the US are owned free and clear
an estimated 6 million Americans own a property other than their own primary residence
an estimated 4.5% of Americans own three or more properties, many purchased solely as investment properties
40% of non-owner occupied residences are mobile homes which are more difficult to sell with bank financing
approximately 5% of homes in US are for sale or for lease...seller financing may be key to liquidating this inventory


The continued success of our industry as we know it is threatened by these proposed regulatory changes. Please do not hesitate to follow the steps above and make your voice heard.

I am shocked this post did not get any comments. This is precisely what I talked about in my post that realtors have to be involved in the political process. This is an outright violation of private property rights and it is downright evil and against our constitution. I will be taking care of this tomorrow. Katerina

Katherina: Probably because people don't care or are not familiar with the concept.
