4 Introduction Radian is proud to be a mortgage insurance industry leader. As a leader, we strive to accommodate the needs of the lending community by offering a variety of comprehensive mortgage insurance products while streamlining the application process. We continuously review Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac guidelines to align our eligibility and policy, whenever possible, and identify opportunities to support Non-Agency lending by providing mortgage insurance on loans not aligned with current Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac offerings. Our guidelines are structured to simplify the mortgage insurance process and provide underwriting clarity. Loans which receive a DU Approve/Eligible Recommendation or LP Accept/Eligible Response and satisfy a limited number of underwriting overlays generally meet Radian s eligibility criteria. Eligibility is also available for Standard underwriting, including Non-AUS, AUS ineligible recommendations, manual underwrites, and Construction-to-Permanent 12 month commitments; in addition to Non-Prime Credit and Non-Agency Jumbo loans. To make it easier to locate the requirements specific to your loan, the Policy section of our guidelines is organized into three chapters: 1. Doing Business with Radian Here you can learn about general eligibility criteria, underwriting types, submission options, commitment details and activation. 2. One Underwrite This chapter provides the underwriting criteria and program requirements for Radian s One Underwrite Program. 3. Standard; Non-Agency Jumbo and Non-Prime Credit For loans that do not meet One Underwrite eligibility, standard underwriting guidelines are provided in addition to eligibility details for Non-Agency Jumbo and Non-Prime Credit. As you navigate the guidelines you will find Bookmarks displayed on the left side of the Adobe Acrobat Reader screen that can be used to easily navigate through the various sections of the guidelines. All eligibility matrix(s) and topics can be accessed by simply expanding and clicking on the bookmark of the section, chapter or subject matter you wish to review. In addition, hyperlinks are provided to take you to another area within the guidelines where you can find additional information on a particular topic. If you click a hyperlink, you may return to your previous place by pressing down the alt (Microsoft) or command (Macintosh) key and the back arrow key at the same time on your keyboard. Should you have any questions about Radian s underwriting guidelines, please contact our Customer Care team at 877.RADIAN1 ( ) or your Radian representative. 4 Radian Introduction

17 c. Relocation Borrowers specific to Relocation Borrowers are not offered. However, in certain cases, favorable pricing is available for Relocation Borrowers who meet the following conditions. Please see rate cards for details. The borrower is purchasing a primary residence. The borrower is a transferred or new employee. The borrower is participating in a formal Relocation program administered by the employer or its agent. The employer contributes to mortgage loan financing through the payment of closing costs, discount points or pre-paid items. 3. Occupancy Status Occupancy type is a component of mortgage insurance eligibility. Radian provides insurance on mortgages secured by property occupied by the borrower as a primary residence or second home. Radian also insures investment property. For Radian insurance eligibility purposes, a property with occupancy or use characteristics inconsistent with those of primary residence or second homes is classified as an investment property. The terms under which Radian will insure an owner occupied property vary depending on whether the property is classified as a primary residence or second home. As a result, for mortgage insurance qualification purposes, Radian provides primary residence and second home occupancy classification requirements. To ensure proper underwriting, all delegated and non-delegated mortgage insurance applications must accurately identify occupancy type. Prior to submission, the lender is to confirm the occupancy type selected on the mortgage insurance application is consistent with Radian s occupancy classification requirements and supported by documentation contained within the loan file. It may be necessary for a lender to perform due diligence before selecting an occupancy type on the mortgage insurance application when the loan details do not provide adequate motivation or clear intent. In these instances, it is prudent for the submitting lender to include with their mortgage insurance application, a summary of the actions taken which provided the details necessary to confirm their selection. Examples of loan file circumstances which may benefit from lender explanation include: 1) Borrower currently owns a primary residence in close proximity to the subject property. 2) Borrower currently owns a property in the subject market area which competes with the subject property in regards to features and benefits. 3) Borrower has acquired other real estate within the past twelve months or is in the process of purchasing other real estate. 4) Borrower is purchasing a home that requires significant updates or improvements to align condition with that which is typical for the neighborhood. 5) Borrower currently co-habits the primary residence owned by their non-entering spouse/domestic partner 6) Subject property is tenant occupied. 7) A non-owner occupant co-borrower transaction when the occupant borrower does not contribute qualifying income. 17 Doing Business with Radian General Eligibility

18 In the event actions taken by a lender do not provide the details necessary to confirm occupancy type classification, the file may be forwarded to the Service Center for a non-delegated underwriting review provided it is identified accordingly (not available for HARP loans due to certificate modification only requirements). a. Primary Residence Radian considers the occupancy of a property to be a primary residence when: The property characteristics are adequate to accommodate the borrower s immediate dependent family. It is occupied by the borrower for the majority of the year. It is located within a reasonable distance from the borrower s place of employment. Note: In the event the borrower is military personnel stationed overseas, all the above occupancy requirements may be met by the borrower s immediate family member(s) when no other real estate is owned by the borrower or occupying family member(s). For purchase and construction conversion transactions: The borrower states an intention to occupy the property as a primary residence, and occupancy will occur no later than (60) days from the date the loan is closed. For existing property refinance transactions: The borrower occupies the property as a primary residence at the time of loan application, and it is the borrower s address of legal record. In addition Radian will insure loans to borrowers as their primary residence when the subject property is owned or purchased by the borrower to accommodate their: Elderly parents, who do not have adequate income or financial resources to qualify for a mortgage on their own. Parents or legal guardians wanting to provide housing for their physically handicapped or developmentally disabled child. Note: The elderly parent or handicapped/disabled child s inability to qualify for a mortgage must be addressed in the loan file. NOTE: Property purchases for the purpose of supplying dormitory or rented housing for the borrower/s or for their family member(s) while attending college or training [commonly referred to as a kiddie condo ] is excluded as a primary residence. b. Second Home Radian will insure loans to borrowers occupying the subject property as a second home subject to the following restrictions: The property will be occupied by the borrower for some portion of the year. The property is: Located in an area that is accessible yet remote enough from the borrower s primary residence to function reasonably as a second home. Suitable for year-round occupancy. Available for the borrower s exclusive use and controlled solely by the borrower. Not under a shared ownership, revenue sharing or rental agreement.

Lenders who have been granted delegated underwriting authority are expected to use this authority, employ prudent judgment and underwrite all loans prior to ordering mortgage insurance.

Link to New Construction/Conversion of Construction-to-Permanent under One Underwrite guidelines Link to New Construction/Conversion of Construction-to-Permanent under Standard guidelines b. Coverage The percentage of mortgage insurance coverage issued is subject to published pricing and based upon lender request. 22 Doing Business with Radian and Submission / Mortgage Insurance Approval / Mortgage Insurance Commitment

23 c. Pricing The cost of Radian s mortgage insurance options can be found on our published rate cards located at 1) Non-traditional Credit Loan files which do not contain any FICO score and therefore are qualified using non-traditional credit references are priced using the lowest credit score offered on the rate cards specific to the mortgage insurance product. These no FICO, non-traditional credit loan files are not eligible for Radian s SplitEdge program. d. Activation The loan must close and the coverage be activated with Radian (i.e., loans must be certified) before the commitment expires. This can be accomplished through Radian s receipt of the initial premium due along with the reported date on which the loan closed, or in the case of deferred premium payment option, report the date to Radian on which the loan closed. e. Post-Commitment Data Changes A loan must re-qualify for a mortgage insurance commitment if any information changes prior to the loan closing which impacts the loan s qualification for mortgage insurance or the terms under which the commitment was issued. Subsequent qualification is based on current published guidelines at the time of re-qualification. It is not based on the guidelines published at the time of the original mortgage insurance application or commitment. A mortgage insurance commitment shall be rendered null and void if changes to the loan information result in a loan that no longer meets Radian s eligibility guidelines. 1) Resubmission Tolerance In the event the borrower discloses or the lender discovers additional debt(s), the loan will not require requalification if: The debt-to-income (DTI) ratio does not exceed the lower of published guidelines, 45%; the DTI ratio does not increase by 3 percentage points or more (if the calculated DTI ratio is less than 45%). A new credit report is obtained and the representative credit score continues to meet published guidelines. In all cases, any change to the loan file must be documented on a revised 1003 provided prior to certification. 2. Delegated Commitments Radian provides delegated lenders the opportunity to obtain a mortgage insurance commitment in one of the following ways: a. The loan information may be entered into Radian s MI Online, data transmission system. It is important to note, Radian s MI Online system validates the eligibility of specific loan features however it is not an underwriting system. The lender is required to adhere to Radian s published guidelines and any representations/ warranties associated with their delegated underwriting authority endorsement. b. The loan information may be transferred through EDI Transmission. c. The loan information may be submitted to a Radian Service Center. Please provide a completed, signed 1008 with the FICO-based credit score clearly noted and applicable AUS Recommendation/Response. 23 Doing Business with Radian Mortgage Insurance Commitment

24 Delegated lenders will be asked to provide channel information when requesting a commitment. Please identify channel according to the following definition: Retail: Submitting Lender took loan application. Wholesale Submitting Lender did not take loan application. Correspondent: Submitting Lender did not take loan application but is the investor buying the loan. 24 Doing Business with Radian Mortgage Insurance Commitment

25 2 One Underwrite Loan files which are submitted with a valid AUS Approve/Accept Credit Recommendation/ Response and satisfy a limited number of underwriting overlays qualify for Radian mortgage insurance. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac analyze credit characteristics and risk features through their proprietary automated underwriting systems (AUS) to identify first lien mortgage loans of prime credit quality. Radian recognizes the value of this assessment and will allow certain prime credit recommendations/ responses in conjunction with a limited number of underwriting overlays to satisfy eligibility requirements. Although Radian presents this opportunity to our lending partners, we promote prudent underwriting and risk assessment as an inherent part of responsible lending and anticipate our clients will complete appropriate due diligence when submitting a loan for mortgage insurance coverage. A. Eligibility Radian will insure loans receiving a Prime credit recommendation/response through the use of Radian Delegated and Non-delegated underwriting subject to the following: 1. Borrower Contribution Radian follows Fannie Mae DU/DO and Freddie Mac LP regarding the occupant borrower s minimum contribution from own funds. For delegated submissions using MI Online and non-delegated submissions underwritten by Radian: Personal gifts, gifts of equity, down payment assistance, employer assistance, or grants meeting GSE requirements are acceptable sources of occupant borrower own funds for purchase transactions of single family primary residences. As a reminder: These loans must be properly identified in MI Online by populating No to Borrower 3% Funds field and answering the corresponding questions regarding source of funds for closing. 2. Agency Automated Systems (AUS)/Recommendation/Response Fannie Mae Desktop Underwriter (DU) Approve/Eligible, Approve/Ineligible Recommendation. DU eligibility includes Desktop Originator (DO). Freddie Mac Loan Prospector (LP) Accept/Eligible, Accept/Ineligible Response for: LTVs to 97% for Fixed Rate; or LTVs to 97% for ARMs with initial minimum fixed period of 3 years or greater Follow GSE requirements for qualifying ARM mortgage payment. a. A recommendation/response specific to a DU Refi Plus or LP Open Access Refinance is not eligible. b. Radian accepts specific lender approvals or variances to a lender s master agreement issued by Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac for the following: Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac approvals or variances related to income and asset eligibility and documentation. Fannie Mae s HomeStyle renovation mortgages. Mortgages secured by properties located in Guam. 25 One Underwrite Eligibility

26 A co-operative share loan. Secondary financing in conjunction with Affordable Housing programs. Approvals or variances must be available upon request. Link to Program Considerations c. Loans submitted to an Agency Custom AUS or Non-Agency AUS; or loans receiving any recommendation/response other than DU Approve/Eligible, Approve/Ineligible or LP Accept/Eligible, Accept/Ineligible must meet standard Radian published guidelines. Link to Chapter 3 Standard; Non-Agency Jumbo and Non-Prime Credit 3. Exclusions DU Refi Plus; LP Open Access Refinance DU Approve/Eligible, LP Accept/Eligible 3 4 Units DU Approve/Ineligible, LP Accept/Ineligible 2 4 Units 4. Maximum Loan Amount Subordinate Financing Loan Features: Amortization; Adjustable Rate Mortgages; Temporary Buy downs Link to One Underwrite DU Approve/Eligible; LP Accept/Eligible matrix Link to One Underwrite DU Approve/Ineligible; LP Accept/Ineligible matrix B. DU/LP Findings and Feedback Reports 1. Identification The final AUS Findings/Feedback Report, a result of the most recent submission, must be included in the loan file. Eligibility details, including special program considerations, must be identifiable. 2. Conditions/Alerts All conditions identified within the Findings/Feedback Report must be satisfied as required by respective Agency guidelines. Red flags identified within the Findings/Feedback Report are to be addressed within the loan file. 3. Compliance The loan must close according to the terms and conditions of the AUS Findings/Feedback Report. Resubmission tolerances as identified by the respective Agency are permitted. C. Data Integrity The transmission of accurate loan data to the Agency AUS is critical to the meaning and effectiveness of the AUS assessment. Therefore the submitting lender is responsible to verify and confirm the accuracy of the data submitted to the Agency AUS which result in the Eligible Recommendation/Response. This includes but is not limited to the Borrower s credit history, source and amount of qualifying income and assets, transaction and property type. 26 One Underwrite Eligibility / DU/LP Findings and Feedback Reports / Data Integrity

27 D. Documentation 1. Age of Documents Follow applicable Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac guidelines. 2. Documentation Type Radian follows applicable Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac requirements for the type of documentation required to support specific sources of qualifying income and assets. Radian will accept streamlined documentation as permitted within the applicable AUS recommendation/response. However, consistent with Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac guidance; there may be instances where AUS streamlined documentation is not sufficient to adequately support the loan details as submitted. On these occasions, the lender must identify and require the documentation necessary to support the loan details and subsequent AUS recommendation/response. 3. Transaction The terms and definition of the transaction, including Interested Party Contributions (IPCs), must meet standard Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac requirements. E. Consideration(s) Outside of AUS 1. Loan Details At times, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac identify loan details and circumstances which are not captured and/or considered with the AUS. These may vary depending on effective date, system limitations or scheduled upgrades. Files which include loan details not considered within the applicable AUS recommendation/response, including but not limited to required reserves, derogatory credit waiting periods, and multiple financed property limitations, must be given manual underwriting consideration to confirm the loan file continues to meet applicable agency guidelines. In the event the file no longer meets applicable agency guidelines, the loan is no longer eligible for One Underwrite and must meet standard published guidelines. Link to Chapter 3 Standard; Non-Agency Jumbo and Non-Prime Credit Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac require lenders to perform a manual calculation of the required minimum reserves for: Current Principal Residence Pending Sale; Current Principal Residence Converting to Second Home; Current 1 4 unit Principal Residence Converting to Investment Property. 2. Assessment When approving a loan as a result of an AUS Recommendation, employ prudent underwriting judgment in assessing the appropriateness of the AUS Recommendation. Confirm the accuracy of the data submitted, making sure the submission did not fail to include any data that might have affected the AUS recommendation had it been known. Ensure that the loan complies with all of the verification messages and approval conditions specified in the AUS Findings report. 27 One Underwrite Documentation / Consideration(s) Outside of AUS

28 Apply due diligence when reviewing the documentation in the loan file. Review the credit report to confirm that the AUS evaluated credit report data with respect to the borrowers credit history was accurate and complete. Determine if there is any potentially derogatory or contradictory information that is not part of the data analyzed by the AUS. Take action when erroneous data in the credit report or contradictory or derogatory information in the loan file would justify additional investigation or potentially deliver a decision that is different from the AUS recommendation. 3. Property Flips The potential increased risk associated with a property flip may not be specifically considered within the scope of the AUS recommendation/response. As a result, the sale of a property recently acquired by the seller after a brief holding period typically for profit must be given consideration outside of the AUS recommendation/response. The expectation exists that any non-arms length transaction or increase in value be documented and analyzed to ensure the risk presented within the transaction is appropriate. F. Program Considerations 1. MyCommunity Mortgage/Home Possible The AUS Eligible Recommendation may be specific to Fannie Mae s MyCommunity Mortgage or Freddie Mac s Home Possible programs, however Radian s overlays remain in effect. 2. HomeStyle Renovation Radian will accept AUS Eligible Renovation loans approved, closed and delivered in compliance with Fannie Mae s HomeStyle Renovation program. Fannie Mae loan feature restrictions apply. 3. New Construction/Conversion of Construction-to-Permanent AUS Eligible and Ineligible Recommendations specific to Construction-to-Permanent loan files are subject to Radian s commitment term of 120 days. The home must be complete and habitable including a Certificate of Occupancy prior to activation of the commitment. In the event Radian s 120 day commitment term will not accommodate the property completion date, subsequent initiation or closing of the permanent financing, or the lender requires coverage during the construction period, a New Construction/Conversion of Construction-to-Permanent, 12 month, commitment term may be requested when initially ordering mortgage insurance.
