What are the required servicing actions for completing conveyance documents?

The following table outlines the required servicer actions for completing conveyance documents. 

The servicer must...
 

Satisfy the requirements that FHA, HUD, VA, RD, or the mortgage insurer have established regarding conveyance of an acquired property to them and for completing the actual conveyance within the required time frame.

 

Establish procedures to ensure that all post-foreclosure sale actions are taken in a timely manner, particularly in those states (such as Maryland) that require significant post-sale actions to obtain good and marketable title.

Note: Fannie Mae will hold the servicer responsible for a failure to obtain good and marketable title in a timely manner (even when the foreclosure sale was held within Fannie Mae's prescribed time frame).

 

Use the type of deed or other transfer instrument that is customarily used to convey a property in the jurisdiction where the security property is located.

 

Instruct the law firm to include in the conveyance document(s) the

  • street address,

  • unit number (when applicable), and

  • legal description.

 

Resume managing the eliminated/rescinded file pursuant to the Servicing Guide.

 

Retain in its individual mortgage loan file the foreclosure deed and Mortgage Release documents and any and all material that could assist Fannie Mae in marketing, selling, or conveying the property.

If Fannie Mae discovers during the marketing of an acquired property that additional information is needed, it will contact the servicer by telephone or email. The servicer must provide all requested additional information within three business days of the request. See A2-1-03, Execution of Legal Documents for additional information regarding the execution of legal documents. The servicer must follow the procedures in F-1-10, Obtaining and Executing Legal Documents. See also E-3.1-03, Fannie Mae Address for Instruments of Record
