2 VA Bankruptcy and Foreclosure Messaging The text of the messages that are issued when DU detects a bankruptcy or foreclosure in the credit report data will be updated in this release; however, the logic for the messages will remain unchanged. The updated text for the bankruptcy message is as follows: This loan casefile has been referred due to the presence of a bankruptcy on the credit report which appears to have occurred within the last 2 years. The lender must review the credit report and bankruptcy documentation to verify that the loan meets VA requirements. The updated text for the foreclosure message is as follows: This loan casefile has been referred due to the presence of a foreclosure on the credit report which appears to have occurred within the last 2 years. The lender must review the credit report and foreclosure documentation to verify that the loan meets VA requirements. HUD Mortgagee Letter Miscellaneous Underwriting Issues This Mortgagee Letter (ML) was issued by HUD on February 28, 2012, and is effective for all FHA Agency Case Numbers assigned on or after April 1, The messages in DU will be updated for this ML with this release. DU is unable to determine the date of the FHA Agency Case Number assignment. Submissions made prior to the weekend of July 21 will receive the old messaging; loan casefiles submitted after the weekend of July 21 will receive the updated messaging outlined in these release notes. Lenders are responsible for ensuring the correct documentation and guidelines are applied based on the date of the FHA Agency Case Number assignment. Income Documentation for Self Employed Borrowers Prior to the issuance of this ML, the documentation requirements for year-to-date (YTD) profit & loss (P&L) statements and balance sheets varied based on whether the loan casefile submission received an Approve or Refer recommendation. With this ML, HUD updated its documentation requirements to be the same for all recommendations. DU will be updated with this release to issue the following message on both Approve and Refer recommendations: <Borrower s Name> is self-employed. Profit and Loss (P&L) Statements and Balance Sheets are required if more than one calendar quarter has elapsed since the filing date of the most recent tax return. Additionally, if income used to qualify the borrower exceeds that of the two-year average based on tax returns, an audited P&L statement or signed quarterly tax returns obtained from the IRS are required to support the greater income stream. Handling of Disputed Accounts The guidance on handling disputed accounts, which is outlined in ML , was rescinded with ML Therefore, the disputed account message in DU will not be updated in this release. The text of the disputed account message in DU also will be updated in this release as follows: If the credit report reveals that the borrower is disputing any tradelines (accounts or collections), the mortgage loan application must be referred to a DE underwriter for review and the file must be documented according to current FHA guidelines, unless the following two conditions have been met: 1) the total outstanding balance of all disputed tradelines (accounts and collections) is less than $1000; and 2) the disputed tradelines (accounts and collections) are aged at least two years from date of last activity as indicated in the credit report Fannie Mae. Trademarks of Fannie Mae

3 FHA Reserves Calculation on 3 to 4 Unit Properties Section 2.B.4.d of HUD Handbook specifies that gift funds cannot be counted towards reserves on 3 to 4 unit properties. DU will be updated in this release to no longer include any gift funds entered in the Assets section of the loan application in the reserves listed in the Underwriting Analysis section of the DU Underwriting Findings Report on 3 to 4 unit properties. Also, DU will no longer include gift funds entered in the Assets section in the Reserves data element sent to the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard on 3 to 4 unit properties. NOTE: The gift funds amount should be entered in both the Source of Downpayment and Assets sections of the loan application to ensure calculations are performed correctly by DU, and correct information is sent to the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard. FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard Version 3.0 Certain data elements that are currently optional will become required data element inputs to the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard the weekend of July 21. These data elements are outlined in the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard AUS Developer s Guide, Version 3.0, and also in these release notes. Since DU is using existing data elements within its Residential Loan Data (RLD) Format 1003 Version 3.2 and MISMO Automated Underwriting Specification (AUS) Version file formats to populate these data elements on submissions to the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard, no changes are needed to customers systems with this release. Borrower Paid Closing Costs This data element is defined by HUD as the resulting amount of line f. Estimated Closing Costs minus the amount from line k. Closing Costs Paid by Seller from the Details of Transaction screen (shown below). This information is currently being collected in the Residential Loan Data (RLD) Format 1003 Version 3.2 and MISMO Automated Underwriting Specification (AUS) Version file formats. Please note, DU currently performs the calculation to send this data element to the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard and will continue to do so Fannie Mae. Trademarks of Fannie Mae

4 Current Housing Expenses This data element is defined by HUD as the sum of the borrowers current monthly housing expenses such as rent or mortgage payments, insurance, taxes, etc. This data is generally taken from the Combined Monthly Housing Expense section of the Income and Housing screen (shown below). This information is currently being collected in the Residential Loan Data (RLD) Format 1003 Version 3.2 and MISMO Automated Underwriting Specification (AUS) Version file formats. Please note, DU currently performs the calculation to send this data element to the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard and will continue to do so. Gift Letter Source and Gift Letter Amount DU was updated in September 2009 along with the Residential Loan Data (RLD) Format 1003 Version 3.2 and MISMO Automated Underwriting Specification (AUS) Version file formats to be able to collect the FHA Gift Letter Source and Gift Letter Amount. This information is entered in the Types, Terms and Property screen (shown below). DU currently sends this to the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard and will continue to do so Fannie Mae. Trademarks of Fannie Mae

5 The FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard is currently able to receive only one Gift Source and Gift Amount per submission. Because it is possible to enter multiple Gift Sources in the available Source of Downpayment fields, DU will send the Gift Letter Source to the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard that corresponds with the highest Gift Letter Amount entered. If multiple Gift Letter Sources have the same dollar amount, DU will apply the hierarchy detailed below to determine which Gift Source to send to the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard: 1. Nonprofit/Religious/Community - Seller Funded 2. Nonprofit/Religious/Community - Non-Seller Funded 3. Relative 4. Employer 5. Government Assistance 6. N/A (includes Gift Funds option) In a scenario where multiple Gift Sources are entered, but some do not have a corresponding dollar amount entered, only the Gift Sources with a dollar amount greater than $0 will be used in determining which Gift Source will be sent to the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard. DU will total the dollar amounts for all Gift Sources (including Seller Funded gifts) and provide this amount (rounded up to the nearest whole dollar) to the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard as the Gift Letter Amount. The Gift Funds option will still be available in the Source of Downpayment field. If this option is selected, DU will send a Gift Source of N/A to the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard. The Gift Source of N/A will also be provided to the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard when no other Gift Source with a corresponding dollar amount greater than $0 is entered in the loan application. Required Investment This data element is defined by HUD as the amount from line p. Cash From/To Borrower from the Details of Transaction screen (shown below). DU calculates this amount based on existing fields in the Residential Loan Data (RLD) Format 1003 Version 3.2 and MISMO Automated Underwriting Specification (AUS) Version DU does not currently send this data element to the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard, but will do so starting with this release Fannie Mae. Trademarks of Fannie Mae

6 Total Closing Costs This data element is defined by HUD as line f. Estimated Closing Costs from the Details of Transaction (shown below). This information is currently collected in an existing field in the Residential Loan Data (RLD) Format 1003 Version 3.2 and MISMO Automated Underwriting Specification (AUS) Version Please note, DU currently sends this data element to the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard and will continue to do so Fannie Mae. Trademarks of Fannie Mae

7 Total Fixed Payment This data element is defined by HUD as the sum of the borrowers total fixed monthly expenses such as the mortgage payment, insurance, taxes, fees, and other recurring charges, including all monthly payment debts and housing debts. DU calculates this amount based on existing fields in the Residential Loan Data (RLD) Format 1003 Version 3.2 and MISMO Automated Underwriting Specification (AUS) Version Please note, DU currently sends this data element to the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard and will continue to do so. The amount sent to the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard for this data element should align with the Total Expense Payment shown in the Underwriting Analysis Report section of the DU Underwriting Findings Fannie Mae. Trademarks of Fannie Mae

8 Seller Concession This data element is defined by HUD as the amount the seller and/or interested third party contributes toward the buyer s closing costs, prepaid expenses, discount points, Upfront Mortgage Insurance Premium (UFMIP), and interest rate buydowns. There is an existing field in the Residential Loan Data (RLD) Format 1003 Version 3.2 and MISMO Automated Underwriting Specification (AUS) Version that captures the seller concessions. However, based on FHA s definition of the data element, DU for government loans will add together the amounts from line k. Closing Costs Paid By Seller on the Details of Transaction; All Seller Credits entered in the Other Credit section of the Details of Transaction; and any amount entered in the Seller Concessions field in the Government Information screen (shown in the following two screenshots). DU does not currently send this data element to the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard, but will do so after this release Fannie Mae. Trademarks of Fannie Mae

9 Down Payment This data element is defined by HUD as line a. Purchase Price from the Details of Transaction screen (shown below) minus line m. Loan Amount (Exclude PMI, MIP, Funding Fee). DU calculates this amount based on existing fields in the Residential Loan Data (RLD) Format 1003 Version 3.2 and MISMO Automated Underwriting Specification (AUS) Version DU currently sends this data element to the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard and will continue to do so. NOTE: DU automatically populates line m. Loan Amount (Exclude PMI, MIP, Funding Fee) in the Details of Transaction screen with the amount entered in the Loan Amount field on the Types, Terms and Property screen (shown below) Fannie Mae. Trademarks of Fannie Mae

10 Condominium Indicator If Condominium, Detached Condo, or High Rise Condo is selected as the Subject Property Type in the Additional Data section (shown below), then DU will send a Y to the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard to indicate the property is a condominium. For all other property types, DU will send an N to the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard to indicate the property is not a condominium. DU for government loans does not currently send this data element to the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard, but will do so starting with this release Fannie Mae. Trademarks of Fannie Mae

11 Property County Code and County Loan Limits With this release, DU will start sending the Property County Code to the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard and start receiving the County Loan Limit information in return. This update will mean that there will be less of a lag time for the correct amounts to be reflected in DU when adjustments are made to the FHA county loan limits. To make this possible, customers will need to enter both the Property State and Zip Code on the Types, Terms and Property screen (shown below) for all FHA submissions to allow the Property GeoCoder to determine the correct county. If the Zip Code is not entered, or the Property GeoCoder is not able to determine a county, the statutory state minimum will be used in DU. NOTE: If for any reason the County Loan Limit displayed in DU is inaccurate, the customer should document the file by printing out the correct loan limit information from the FHA Mortgage Limits lookup tool, which is located at the following URL: Fannie Mae. Trademarks of Fannie Mae

12 With this release, the County field located in the FHA Government Information screen (shown below) will no longer be used by DU to determine the county. The field will be removed from the user interface in a future release of DU. Review Rules Review Rules are codes sent to DU to note the reason the loan casefile submission received a Refer recommendation from the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard. HUD is incorporating four new Review Rules in the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard. DU is adding two new corresponding messages as well as updating two existing messages. The following two messages are new with this release: This loan casefile has been referred because the current housing expense is greater than the total monthly income. This loan casefile has been referred because the amount being contributed by the seller exceeds 6 percent of the sales price. The following two messages are being updated with this release: This loan casefile has been referred due to the presence of one or more 30-day late mortgage payments showing on the credit report that occurred within the last 12 months, and the transaction type is a cash-out refinance. This loan casefile has been referred because at least one borrower does not have a credit score. Error Messaging The handling of Error Codes returned from the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard to DU will be updated in this release. After the release implementation over the weekend of July 21, if DU does not recognize an error code returned by the FHA TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard, the numeric code will be passed to the customer in the following new error message: 2012 Fannie Mae.
