E-2.1-11: Remitting P&I for MBS Mortgage Loans That Are Part of a Bankruptcy (11/12/2014)

As long as any mortgage loan remains in its MBS pool, regardless of servicing option or delinquency status, the servicer must report and remit the P&I to Fannie Mae each month as scheduled under the original terms of the mortgage loan. See C-3-01, Responsibilities Related to Remitting P&I Funds to Fannie Mae . See also E-2.3-03, Handling Cramdowns of the Mortgage Debt for more information regarding P&I remittance on loans subject to cramdowns in bankruptcy.

For example, an MBS mortgage loan in an MBS pool issued prior to June 1, 2007 that is current (or has not been in a continuous state of delinquency for at least four consecutive payment due dates) in the month in which the Order of Confirmation is entered will remain in its MBS pool.

following the earlier of:

  • the confirmation of a reorganization plan that modifies the terms of the MBS mortgage loan; or

  • the loan having been in a continuous state of delinquency for at least four consecutive monthly payment due dates, or at least eight consecutive payment due dates in the case of a biweekly mortgage loan, without a full cure during that period.

issued prior to June 1, 2007

after the mortgage loan has been in a continuous state of delinquency for at least four consecutive monthly payment due dates, or at least eight consecutive payment due dates in the case of a biweekly mortgage loan, without a full cure during that period.

The mortgage loan may already appear on Fannie Mae’s list of delinquent mortgage loans due for reclassification. If not, the servicer must contact its Fannie Mae Servicing Representative (see F-4-03, List of Contacts) to request that the mortgage loan be added to the reclassifications scheduled for the month in which the plan is confirmed. If the opportunity to do so in the current month has expired, the servicer may request that the mortgage loan be added to the reclassifications for the following month.
