Reporting a reason for delinquency code UPDATED Jul. 15, 2020
The servicer must report delinquency status information to Fannie Mae through Fannie Mae's servicing solutions system in accordance with Servicing Guide D2-4-01, Reporting a Delinquent Mortgage Loan to Fannie Mae and F-1-22, Reporting a Delinquent Mortgage Loan via Fannie Mae's Servicing Solutions System.
In an effort to enable us to identify mortgage loans where the borrower has experienced a hardship associated with COVID-19 while not resulting in a systems impact for us or you, the servicer must report reason for delinquency code 022, Energy Environment Costs, when reporting the delinquency status of such mortgage loans to us . If the borrower's COVID-19 related hardship remains unresolved and the borrower experiences another hardship concurrently (for example, a disaster event), the servicer must continue to report reason for delinquency code 022, Energy- Environment Costs, regardless of the reason for delinquency associated with the concurrent hardship.
For mortgage loans where the servicer would have otherwise reported reason for delinquency code 022 due to EnergyEnvironment Costs, the servicer must now use reason for delinquency code 007, Excessive Obligations.
