After a mortgage loan is either partially or fully reinstated, the servicer must return the original mortgage note to the document custodian if the servicer took physical possession of the original note for the foreclosure action. The servicer must return the note to the document custodian by submitting a Request for Release/Return of Documents (Form 2009).The servicer also must follow the procedures in F-1-22, Reporting a Delinquent Mortgage Loan via Fannie Mae’s Servicing Solutions System ,to report the reinstatement to Fannie Mae.
