The Redesigned Uniform Residential Loan Application (URLA) Mandate Rescheduled
Effective Date: Immediately
On August 8, 2019, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, announced a delay to the February 1, 2020 implementation date for the redesigned Uniform Residential Loan Application (URLA).
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac also announced additional changes to the redesigned URLA, as a result, the deadlines for implementation of the URLA and AUS datasets have been extended in order to allow time for industry participants to make the necessary changes. To gain a full understanding of these changes PFIs should review the attached announcement.
A new implementation date has not been announced. We will continue to monitor the implementation of the URLA and will announce any updates as soon as information becomes available.
