How should a servicer handle a request for an appraisal or a BPO for borrower-initiated termination of conventional mortgage insurance based on the original value of the property or on the current value of the property?  

As a reminder, when a borrower requests mortgage insurance termination based on the original or current value of the property and a BPO or appraisal is required to verify the current value of the property, the property valuation must be based on an inspection of both the interior and exterior of the property. We acknowledge that the impact of COVID-19 may result in a delay in obtaining a BPO or appraisal. If a BPO or appraisal is required to verify the current value of the property, the servicer must notify the borrower that it will be unable to approve the termination request until the BPO or appraisal is completed (along with all other requirements for terminating the mortgage insurance being satisfied). See Servicing Guide B-8.1-04, Termination of Conventional Mortgage Insurance and F-1-02, Escrow, Taxes, Assessments, and Insurance for additional information.
