If a Mortgagee has multiple addresses, which address should be entered as the administrative address in the Lender Electronic Assessment Portal (LEAP)?

The Mortgagee must update the administrative address field in the Lender Electronic Assessment Portal (LEAP) with the street address to which HUD administrative notices from the Homeownership Center (HOC) Quality Assurance and Processing and Underwriting Divisions, Office of Lender Activities and Program Compliance, Mortgagee Review Board (MRB), Office of General Counsel, and the Office of Inspector General (OIG) are sent, including requests and/or demands for indemnification.
 
The Mortgagee must also update the administrative contact information in LEAP with the primary administrative contact and an associated email address.  This is the primary contact for all interaction between the Mortgagee and FHA.
