Fannie Mae's selection of allowable services addresses the majority of maintenance and repair items needed to properly maintain a property. However, there may be instances where the allowable dollars have been exhausted or are not available, but the work must be immediately completed due to an urgent condition.
Fannie Mae defines urgent condition as property damage repairs/maintenance required to preserve safety, limit liability, or protect the asset from immediate danger and further damage. The BATF process should only be used when immediate work is necessary to remediate the urgent condition or as specified in this Property Preservation Guide.
