What are the requirements for conducting a prereferral review prior to referring a loan to foreclosure?

The servicer must perform a prereferral review of the mortgage loan within 15 days prior to the date the servicer is required to refer the mortgage loan to foreclosure (see also E-3.1-02, Performing Due Diligence Prior to Considering Foreclosure). Before the review, the breach or acceleration letter and the Borrower Solicitation Package deadline must have expired without affirmative response from the borrower.
