07/2020 Protecting the Mortgage Insurance Funds Housing All


HUD OIG is reviewing HUD's corrective actions in response to four specific recommendations made in audit reports 2012-PH-0004, 2013-PH-0002, 2014-PH-0001, and 2015-PH-0004.  Our prior audits showed that HUD’s controls did not always ensure that HECM loan borrowers complied with program residency requirements.  The audits included a recommendation to prevent and mitigate instances of borrowers violating the principal residency requirements.   The objective of our audit is to determine whether HUD's actions to address the recommendations were adequate.
