HUD Transactional Guidance

 

  • File HUD 2530 application through the Active Partners Performance Systems (APPS)
    • The HUD 2530 / Previous Participation Certification is a risk management tool. The U.S. Dept. of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) uses the application to measure the risk factor for doing business with an organization. HUD analyzes this record to evaluate past, present and future responsibilities, performance, participation and business practices. Approval for new or further participation is a privilege earned with a good record and a history of responsible performance.
  • Set and Maintain 2530 reporting.
  • Review existing 2530 reporting to ensure it conforms to the most current HUD guidance.
  • 2530 Flags and Administrative Sanction Issues
    • We know firsthand that these types of issues have a negative impact on our clients doing new business. We have successfully assisted our clients in resolving matters with the Office of Inspector General and resolving 2530 flags.
  • Management Entity Profiles (HUD form 9832) We create new and review/update existing profiles.
    • Management Entity Profiles are filed to HUD when the Management Agent is requesting to manage a new asset or when there is company information that has change.

Testimonials

Rosemarie has a very solid understanding of the myriad of HUD regulatory frameworks impacting federally assisted rental housing which enables her company to maintain compliance with these rules. She is also an expert on one of HUD’s more complicated and antiquated data systems- APPS. She was selected as a pilot user and is a vital source of information for the industry who struggles to access and use APPS. I rely on her knowledge to answer many of the questions posted to me about APPS and the previous participation process (known as 2530).

Executive Director NLHA
Rosemarie,

We would be amiss if we did not write to tell you how much we appreciated your assistance with our 2530 submission. You knocked it out of the park with the first submission and got our approval, even though the government was shut down! You stayed on top of HUD and you kept us informed every step of the way. We would highly recommend your company!

Thanks again~​

My name is Kathy Thomasson and I worked at HUD Headquarters in the Previous Participation and Review Division. Rosemarie and I began working together on 2530 clearance during the AIMCO/Insignia merger in 1998 and on through 2005. The portfolio she reported on was the largest affordable owner and agent with varying degrees of needs. HUD 2530 filings had to come up to Headquarters for me for review and approve. I can attest to the amount of dedication she put into helping get 2530’s filed, flags resolved and fulfillment of any item I needed from her organization. She was a tremendous resource for us as well when we started the pilot program for electronic 2530’s, now known as APPS.

My name is Roy Lee III, I am a former Asset Manager and Associate Counsel for Security Properties Inc Affordable Housing Division, located in Seattle WA. I am writing to give my most enthusiastic recommendation for Rosemarie Harris of Secured Systems Consulting, LLC. She is extremely competent in the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (“HUD”) regulatory issues.

I coordinated with Rosemarie for fourteen years on HUD regulatory issues between AIMCO Apartment Homes and Security Properties Inc., while she was Director of Regulatory Affairs. Rosemarie’s encyclopedic knowledge of HUD procedures, people skills and enthusiasm are unmatched. I have never met anyone with such meticulous organizational skills and sheer ability to just “get things done.”

Roy Lee III
Attorney at Law
I had the privilege of working with Rosemarie from 1999 through 2009 as AIMCO’s Executive Vice President with responsibility for asset management of the largest government subsidized multifamily portfolio in the country. Rosemarie is an expert in the 2530 Previous Participation disclosure process and has leveraged her relationships at HUD to execute extremely complex transactions and resolve the most challenging flag issues an owner can face. She successfully and professionally managed the large amount of data required for AIMCO to disclose its multi-tiered ownership structures encompassing more than 800 properties aggregated through its acquisition of numerous companies including NHP, Insignia, Oxford and Casden. Her efforts enabled AIMCO to successfully obtain 2530 clearance to complete these acquisitions and more than 50 LIHTC redevelopments with substantial impact on the earnings of the company.

Rosemarie is diligent and tenacious, yet always professional and personable. Her contributions at AIMCO were invaluable, and her relationships and experience are a potential asset for any owner of government subsidized properties.

I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation of Secured Systems Consulting, LLC. We recently closed a HUD 236 with various forms of financing on an acquisition and rehab development. At the last minute, we found out that we were not HUD 2530 approved an enlisted the services of Rosemarie Harris to help us with that approval process. In researching that system on our own, we found that it was nearly impossible to submit the request, get approval, and close our transaction timely, especially with looming deadlines of lenders and equity participants.

Rosemarie Harris was able to work with us through the 2530 process and receive approvals quickly in order to close escrow as scheduled. We would highly recommend Secured Systems Consulting to work with developers on not only the 2530 process but other HUD related processing issues as well.
