HUD Updates “How to Avoid Foreclosure” Brochure Requirement

By: Krista Cooley, Kathryn M. Baugher

Out with the old, in with the “new”! The first Mortgagee Letter of 2014 has arrived, superseding the guidance contained in Mortgagee Letter 2002-14.

In Mortgagee Letter 2014-1, HUD clarifies what notice FHA-approved mortgagees must provide to delinquent mortgagors to satisfy the requirement found in 24 C.F.R. § 203.602. Under the new Mortgagee Letter, mortgagees must send delinquent borrowers the “Save Your Home: Tips to Avoid Foreclosure” brochure (HUD-2008-5-FHA) no earlier than the 32nd day of delinquency and no later than the 60th day of delinquency. This mandate replaces the previous requirement to send borrowers the “How to Avoid Foreclosure” brochure (HUD-PA-426), which has not been updated since 2001. We note that, while the requirement to send the “Save Your Home: Tips to Avoid Foreclosure” brochure is new, the brochure itself has been around for at least several years. Read More
