3 Program Overview The guidelines within this document only apply to Fannie Mae DU Refi Plus, which requires evaluation through DU. Fannie Mae also offers Refi Plus which allows for manual underwriting of a loan by the current servicer only. Refi Plus loans are not eligible for financing through Pacific Union Financial. Highlights Fannie Mae DU Refi Plus is an initiative under the federal government's Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP). This program allows borrowers to refinance when home values may have declined and/or mortgage insurance may not be available. This program allows for high LTVs, unlimited CLTV, and minimal income and asset documentation. Loans with a note date on or before May 31, 2009 are eligible for DU Refi Plus. New loan application must be dated on or prior to December 31, DU findings must state the loan is eligible for DU Refi Plus. New loan must be a fully amortizing fixed rate. Non-Pacific Union to Pacific Union transactions: The existing loan must be current. Credit Philosophy Ability to Repay and Qualified Mortgage Pacific Union is committed to complying with Ability-to-Repay and Qualified Mortgage rules (ATR/QM) by making a reasonable, good-faith determination that borrowers have a reasonable ability to repay the loan in accordance with the policies set forth within Fannie Mae guidelines. Factors considered in making this determination include the borrower s income, assets and employment status (if relied on) against the mortgage loan payment, ongoing expenses related to the mortgage loan or the subject property, payments on simultaneous loans secured by the subject property, other debt obligations, and alimony and child-support payments as required by Fannie Mae. A borrower s credit history is also considered in the evaluation and must comply with Fannie Mae policies. Pacific Union will utilize reasonably reliable third party sources of information.

Second Homes limited to one unit dwellings Automated Underwriting DU performs the risk review, but the lender is responsible for final credit decision as to whether or not the borrower qualifies for the loan using the underwriting recommendation. Loan must receive an Approve/Eligible recommendation. The DU recommendation and relief of representations and warranties are dependent upon the accuracy of the data entered into DU. This includes: Property address, including unit numbers, must be exact as on the title report and Assets entered into DU must be accurately reflected in DU as per the most recent verification. If verification of assets is not necessary, the assets must be accurate as per the Income must be calculated as required by the Fannie Mae Selling Guide. Credit report must reflect all liabilities listed on the Liabilities must be included in the DTI ratio unless they may be excluded per Fannie Mae s polices. All conditions of the DU Findings must be met. However, income and assets may be verified as outlined within this Program Guide. Refer to DU Tolerances in the Conventional Program Guidelines for additional guidance regarding rerunning DU when material data changes occur. Age of Documents For all loans (existing and new construction), credit documents must be no more than four months (120 days) old on the Note Date. Credit documents include credit reports and employment, income, and asset documentation. If the credit documents are older than allowed, the documents must be updated. DU Refi Plus Program Guide Wholesale Lending Page 4 of 15 10/19/2015

5 Assets DU Refi Plus Loan Program Guide When there are consecutive documents in the loan file, the most recent document is used to determine the age. For example, when two consecutive monthly bank statements are provided, the most recent bank statement must be dated within 120 days of the Note Date. Loans should be documented per DU requirements. When asset verification is required: Most recent asset statement (monthly, quarterly, or annual) should be used. Large deposits do not need to be investigated or explained. Proof of liquidation of assets is not required even if assets are required for payment of closing costs. Discounting of certain assets in accordance with standard Fannie Mae policies still applies. Borrower Eligibility All types of borrowers are eligible. Restrictions only apply when adding or deleting a borrower or when vesting will be in the name of a trust. Each person who has an ownership interest in the property, even if the individual s income is not used as qualifying income, must sign the security instrument. Adding or Deleting a Borrower Borrowers on existing loan may be removed from the new loan provided at least one original borrower remains on the loan. A new borrower may be added to the loan, provided the existing borrower(s) are retained. Primary Residence: Income from the new borrower may only be used for qualifying if the new borrower will occupy the dwelling. Employee Loan Policy Loans to the originating Broker and/or their employees are allowed subject to Second Level Review and approval by a Credit Risk Underwriter. Trusts Not permitted Credit and Liabilities Mortgage Payment History DU applies the following guidelines to the processing of loans with mortgage delinquencies: Non-Pacific Union to Pacific Union transactions: The existing loan must be current. Loans will receive an Ineligible recommendation due to excessive prior mortgage delinquency if the borrower has a mortgage tradeline that has one or more 60, 90, 120, or 150-day delinquency reported within the 12 months prior to the credit report date. If an account is reported on the credit report as a non-mortgage tradeline, but the account is listed on the loan application as a mortgage, DU will analyze the credit history of the tradeline as a mortgage. For example, if the credit report identifies an account as a revolving account, and the account is listed as a HELOC on the loan application, DU will evaluate the credit history of the account as a mortgage. Any late payments in the credit report will be treated by DU as delinquent mortgage payments. If there is a mortgage that is disclosed on the loan application but not reported on the credit report, DU will issue a message requiring the lender to confirm that the account is not two DU Refi Plus Program Guide Wholesale Lending Page 5 of 15 10/19/2015

6 or more payments past due as of the date of the application and that it has not been past due by two or more payments in the last 12 months. If it is determined that the borrower does have a mortgage that is past due by two or more payments or has been past due by two or more payments in the last 12 months, the loan is not eligible. Modified Mortgages A modified mortgage is one in which a permanent change has been made to the original loan terms without any forgiveness of principal or accrued interest. This may include, but is not limited to: A change in amortization term, A reduction in interest rate, or A reduction in the scheduled monthly payment amount. Modified mortgages may not be accurately reflected on the borrower s credit report. If it is known or suspected that the borrower had a previous modification, the credit report must be updated and the loan re-scored and resubmitted to DU. A copy of the modified note must be in the loan file. See Restructured Mortgages, if applicable. Eligibility Transaction Refinance of a Modified Mortgage Other Modified Mortgage(s) Non-Subject Eligibility A previously modified mortgage is eligible for refinance subject to DU Refi Plus approval and, The mortgage payment history must be reviewed to insure that there has not been one or more 60, 90, 120, or 150 day delinquencies within the 12 months prior to the report date. The terms of the modified mortgage must be used to determine Net Tangible Benefit. If the borrower was previously in a trial period plan, but was denied a permanent modification, the current terms of the loan must be used to determine Net Tangible Benefit. Eligible with DU Refi Plus approval and, The mortgage payment history must be reviewed to insure that there has not been one or more 60, 90, 120, or 150 day delinquencies within the 12 months prior to the report date.

Significant Derogatory Credit Collateral Property DU will issue a message on loans for borrowers with a previous bankruptcy, foreclosure, deed-in-lieu of foreclosure, preforeclosure sale or mortgage charge-off indicating that DU identified the derogatory event and that the presence of the event does not impact eligibility, regardless of when the derogatory event occurred. DU will not require the investigation of judgments, bankruptcies, foreclosures, or lawsuits declared by the borrower in the Declarations section of the loan application.

However, all of the following conditions must be met: The DU Findings may not be more than 120 days old at closing. The DU Findings must state the loan is eligible for a FWW. A $75 fee will apply: Must appear on Closing Disclosure as lender fee (not Fannie Mae fee). The Broker must advise the borrower not to rely on the lack of an appraisal as assurance about the condition or value of the property. The Broker may not represent to the borrower or to any third party to the transaction that Fannie Mae or any third party performed a property review, appraisal, or valuation of any sort. The borrower may not be charged a fee for an appraisal, a collateral review, or any similar service as part of the new mortgage transaction. The Broker must comply with all applicable laws and regulations related to the origination and servicing of the new mortgage, including, but not limited to, the Homeowners Protection Act of 1998 (the Act ). Certain borrower rights and lender obligations are based on the LTV ratio at the time of origination and at later dates.

Debt to Income Maximum DTI Rely on DU If HPML, see HMPL topic below DU Refi Plus Program Guide Wholesale Lending Page 8 of 15 10/19/2015

9 Qualifying Rate The qualifying rate is the Note Rate. Higher-Priced Mortgage Loans (HPML) and HPML Qualified Mortgage (QM) HPMLs and HPML Qualified Mortgages (QM) are loans secured by the borrower s primary residence, second home or investment property that are priced at an Annual Percentage Rate (APR) that exceeds the Average Prime Offer Rate (APOR). Based on the date the interest rate is set (locked or re-locked), the APR must be compared with the APOR index. The loan will be considered an HPML if the APR exceeds the index by 1.5% or more. HPMLs or HPML QMs may be eligible subject to the following: Borrower s ability to repay is established and income and assets have been fully documented; and An escrow account for taxes and insurance is established. For projects such as condominiums and PUDs where the property insurance is collected as part of the borrower s HOA fee and remitted by the HOA to the insurance provider, the escrow account must be established for taxes and if applicable any mortgage insurance and any individual homeowner s insurance policy. All HPML and HPML QM loans must meet the following additional guidelines. Desktop Underwriter is not able to determine if a loan is an HPML or HPML QM, and will not be updated to reflect these guidelines, therefore these loans must be manually reviewed to insure compliance with these requirements. Minimum 620 credit score Maximum 45% DTI Verification of income source and amount is required. Geographic Restrictions Refer to the Geographic Matrix for additional restrictions Income and Employment All employment and income requirements will be included in DU Refi Plus messaging.

DU Refi Plus Program Guide Wholesale Lending Page 10 of 15 10/19/2015

11 The source of the information and the name and title of the person obtaining the verification must be documented. Active Military A YTD Leave and Earnings Statement (LES) dated no more than 30 days prior to note date may be provided in lieu of a verbal VOE Mortgage Insurance (MI) If the LTV is >80% and DU findings indicate that the existing loan has mortgage insurance in place, the new loan must have MI. DU will determine if MI is required as follows: If original LTV 80%, then MI is not required. If original LTV >80% AND existing loan has active MI, obtain either amount of coverage on existing loan or standard coverage if obtaining the standard coverage provides a lower cost option for the borrower. If original LTV >80% AND existing loan does NOT have active MI, then MI is not required. If MI has been cancelled, the file must include written evidence provided by the MI provider or current servicer to reflect cancellation of MI due to a decrease in LTV below the maximum acceptable limit. Loans with MI When the DU Findings indicate that MI is required, the existing MI must be transferred to the new loan, or the file must contain documentation to evidence the original MI was canceled. For loans where MI is required: Eligible only if insured by one of the following providers: Radian Genworth RMIC United Guaranty (UG may require a full underwrite of the original loan. This process requires UG request the original file from the original lender, and the entire process may take 30 to 45 days.) Triad PMI MGIC Coverage amount of insurance remains as on the existing MI policy. However, the term of the insurance must cover the life of the new loan, or until cancellation or termination of coverage as required by law or Fannie Mae guidelines. On transferred MI policies, the initial premium was paid when the existing loan closed and is not collected on the new loan. A reasonable cost may be charged for the modification of the mortgage insurance policy. Escrow waivers are not permitted on monthly MI plans. Single Premium MI If the premium on the original loan was paid as a single premium, the coverage may not be converted to any other plan. Borrower-Paid MI (BPMI) On annual plans, the full annual premium is paid at closing. Any applicable refunds are processed by the MI provider. Financed/ Split MI: If the existing loan has financed upfront MI, the coverage transfers to the new loan. DU Refi Plus Program Guide Wholesale Lending Page 11 of 15 10/19/2015

12 The existing coverage is continued on the new loan regardless of whether the initial premium was paid as a single financed premium or split upfront premium. If the initial coverage was a Split MI plan, the monthly payment as reflected on the modification certificate must be entered in DataTrac. If the transfer of the MI policy results in a refund to the borrower, as may be the case with a refundable annual premium. The MI provider will process the refund after the loan closes. The refund is not netted from the payoff. Lender Paid MI (LPMI) Single Pay LPMI plans may be transferred to the new loan. Monthly LPMI plans must be converted to a Borrower Paid plan. Existing Borrower Paid MI may not be converted to LPMI. Private Mortgage Insurance Documentation The following documentation is required on loans with Private Mortgage Insurance: The DU Findings must indicate MI is required, identify the existing MI provider name, coverage details and certificate number. The file must contain evidence that the MI provider will modify the policy to the new loan. This must be obtained prior to closing the loan and should be included in the submission package for all loans. The forms of evidence will vary from MI provider to MI provider. The Closing Disclosure must indicate the amount of the MI as follows: If monthly premium, appropriate escrow cushions have been collected. Typically two months escrows are required unless prohibited by state regulations or the MI certificate indicates a zero monthly MI plan is in place. On a HARP loan with MI, the monthly MI transfers from the old loan to the new loan. This may create a slight gap in payment of the MI premium to the MI provider during the transition period from original lender to the new lender. To ensure sufficient funds are available to make any back payments due the MI provider, an amount sufficient to cover the monthly MI due from the date of last mortgage payment made per the payoff statement and the date of closing, will be collected at closing. For example, if the loan was paid off in May and the first loan payment due Pacific Union Financial is July 1, then: If the May MI payment was not paid by the borrower to the original lender, collect three months of premium to cover May, June and July s MI premium. If May payment was paid by the borrower to the original lender, collect two months of premium to cover the June and July monthly payments. If annual premium, the full annual premium has been collected. If any portion of the annual premium paid by the previous servicer is refundable, the refund will be processed by the MI provider. If the subject is the borrower s primary residence: File must contain an amortization schedule illustrating when the MI will drop. State required MI disclosures, where applicable, must also be included in the loan file. Borrower must be provided with a PMI Disclosure which explains how the borrower may request MI cancellation, the borrower s right to request cancellation, when MI will be automatically dropped and any exemptions to the general cancellation or termination policy. Multiple Financed Properties Number of Loans There is no limit to the number of loans that may be financed by Pacific Union Financial to any one or group of borrowers. DU Refi Plus Program Guide Wholesale Lending Page 12 of 15 10/19/2015

13 Number of Financed 1-4 Unit Properties There is no limit to the number of financed 1-4 unit properties a borrower may own. Secondary Financing Payoff of a subordinate lien, regardless of age, may not be included in the new loan amount. New subordinate financing may be permitted only if the new subordinate lien is used to pay off an existing subordinate lien, provided that the new loan amount does not exceed the unpaid balance of the subordinate lien being paid off. Existing subordinate financing may remain in place provided the loan is clearly subordinated to our first lien. Loans with Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) subordinate liens are not eligible. Due to eligibility and delivery requirements, loans with Community Second subordinate liens are not eligible. Grant-like unsecured financing (Hardest Hit Funds) may be used to pay down a portion of the existing first lien. In this situation, the following policies apply: Funds must be reflected on the 1003 and in DU (Section VII, Details of Transaction). The file must contain a copy of the promissory note. The promissory note must state that no repayment is expected. Closing Disclosure must reflect the transfer of loan proceeds. Transaction Types Transaction must be a rate/term refinance with proceeds being used to pay off an existing Fannie Mae first lien loan. Maximum Loan Amount Calculation The loan limit may not exceed the lesser of: The maximum loan limit per the Maximum Loan Amount matrix; or The total of: Payoff of the existing first lien (details of transaction section (line d) must match the balance of the lien being paid off in the liabilities section); plus Payment of closing costs, late fees, prepaids and discount points; plus When MI is being transferred, the MI provider may charge a reasonable MI transfer fee. Incidental cash back to the borrower at closing may not exceed $250. Cash back in excess of $250 must be applied as a principal reduction on the new loan. The principal reduction must be made prior to delivery of the loan to Fannie Mae. The $250 limit does not include the reimbursement of documented fees paid outside of closing. Proceeds of loan may not be used to: Pay off subordinate financing or any other lien. The file must contain a copy of the subordination agreement. Buy out the interest of another borrower. Texas Home Equity The payoff of an existing Texas Home Equity Loan is permitted provided the DU Findings indicate it is eligible for DU Refi Plus.
