The servicer is required to maintain the interior and the exterior of the property year round. Fannie Mae provides the servicer with allowable thresholds in order to perform routine maintenance, preservation, and repairs. All expense reimbursement limits (allowables) can be found in Servicing Guide F-1-05: Expense Reimbursement. Within this Property Preservation Guide, all required services and expectations will be provided as they correspond to the associated allowable.
