MPF Quality Control Reminders
Effective Date: Immediately
The MPF Quality Control (QC) Department would like to remind PFIs and Servicers of the following requirements:
Pre-Closing and Post-Closing QC reviews
PFIs must maintain and implement a QC program for Mortgage Loans originated and serviced under the MPF Program.
The QC program must ensure that Mortgage Loans delivered to the MPF Program:
- Conform to the MPF Program Requirements;
- Are of a quality acceptable to the MPF Bank and other institutional investors; and
- Comply with the insurer and/or guarantor requirements.
To remain compliant, PFIs must ensure their QC program includes performance of both pre-Closing and post-Closing QC reviews in accordance with Section 8.2 of the MPF Program Guide.
PFIs delivering and servicing MPF Xtra Mortgage Loans must also follow the policies in Fannie Mae Selling Guide: D1-2-01, Lender Prefunding Quality Control Review Process and D-1-3-01 through D-1-3-06.
4506-C and Tax Transcripts
As a reminder, tax transcripts are required for all Mortgage Loans chosen for QC reviews. The transcripts should reflect the same tax years as documented by the tax returns and/or W-2s utilized in underwriting the file.
For self-employed Borrowers whose income documentation includes both individual and business tax returns, the PFI must obtain transcripts for both the individual and business returns.
See MPF Traditional Selling Guide Section 5.9.8 and MPF Xtra Selling Guide Section 5.4.
