What loan types are Fannie Mae's property recovery firms responsible for filing property loss insurance claims on?

Fannie Mae’s property recovery firms assume all responsibilities for filing any necessary property insurance claims for losses identified post-foreclosure for

  • conventional first lien mortgage loans,

  • conventional second lien mortgage loans for which Fannie Mae either had an ownership interest in the first lien mortgage loan or paid off the first lien mortgage loan in connection with the foreclosure of the second lien mortgage loan,

  • FHA or VA mortgage loans that cannot be conveyed to the insurer or guarantor, and

  • special servicing option RD guaranteed mortgage loans.

The property recovery firm may contact the servicer to obtain information about any applicable property insurance policy and carrier(s) and any recent property inspections completed by the servicer. The servicer must provide all requested information or documentation to the property recovery firm within three business days.
