On October 7, 2020 Fannie Mae issued Selling Guide Announcement SEL-2020-06 which covered the below referenced topics that are applicable to loans sold under the MPF Xtra product:

  • Updated the Selling Guide to implement the flexibilities for the use of remote online notarization introduced in Lender Letter LL-2020-03, Impact of COVID-19 on Originations.
  • Clarified project standards requirements concerning condotel ineligibility, pre-litigation activities, and recreational leases.
  • Updated the Selling Guide to align with the recent update to the DU validation service to discontinue validation of employment and income using manual verification reports.
  • Clarified cash-out refinance vesting requirements when there are multiple borrowers; and gifts of equity are permitted as down payment or towards closing costs.
