Fannie Mae Property Preservation Matrix and Reference Guide April 2019 (Section 4: Property Registrations)

Section 4: Property Registrations

Property Registrations Overview

Upon delinquency, the servicer must determine any requirements imposed by municipal, county, or state authorities for property registration. The servicer must register the property as required and pay all applicable registration fees using the Property Registration Allowable. A servicer may have to register properties upon vacancy, foreclosure, title transfer, blight conditions or any combination thereof. The servicer may need to re- register upon loan servicing transfers or contact information updates. Timely compliance is required to avoid penalties and fines.

In addition to the initial registration, municipalities may require periodic registration renewals. The servicer must file any subsequent notices as required by law. Timely compliance is required to avoid penalties and fines. The servicer will be held responsible for any fines, fees and penalties charged against Fannie Mae or the servicer as a result of the servicer’s failure to file the required notice(s). These fines, fees, penalties, and/or liens are not reimbursable by Fannie Mae.

Refer to Section 16: Reimbursement Requests within this Property Preservation Guide for further guidance.
