HUD P260 Training

HUD has issued the following announcement regarding training on the department’s new on-line, web-based Internet Portal, P260.

At the recent MBA conference in California, the Department announced that it has centralized its Mortgagee compliance functions into a single point of contact, designated as the Mortgagee Compliance Manager (MCM).  The Mortgagee Compliance Manager implements the first phase of the new M&M III environment.    The MCM was awarded to Michaelson, Conner & Boul, Inc. (MCB) whose office will be located in Oklahoma City. The MCM will be responsible for pre-and-post conveyance activity, including: verification and approval of reimbursable expenses for preservation and protection; title reviews; request for time extensions; inspection audits; and ensuring conveyed properties meet FHA standards. 

With the consolidation of Mortgagee compliance functions, HUD would like to introduce the department’s new on-line, web-based Internet Portal, P260.  This portal will eliminate the need for Mortgagees to submit paper requests for pre-and-post conveyance activities to HUD.  Lenders are required to attend one of the training sessions since the use of  the P260 system is required under the new MCM structure.
