Is the servicer expected to maintain yards year-round for property preservation?
Fannie Mae expects the servicer to maintain yards year-round and comply with local ordinance/association standards. There is only one Initial Yard Service Allowable for the life of loan. In the event a subsequent initial yard service is required, a bid must be submitted via HomeTracker within fifteen (15) calendar days from date of discovery.
