If there are multiple reasons for default, such as non-occupancy and failure to maintain the property in good repair, which reason should the servicer submit as the reason for default in a HECM Due and Payable request to HUD?

The servicer would evaluate the full circumstances of the default and submit a Due and Payable request to HUD for approval, according to the specific facts of each case.  The Due and Payable approval will be rescinded once all reasons for the default have been cured.
