Under what circumstances must the servicer of a portfolio mortgage loan or a special servicing option MBS mortgage loan reimburse Fannie Mae for mortgage insurance related costs?

The servicer of a portfolio mortgage loan or a special servicing option MBS mortgage loan must reimburse Fannie Mae in the following circumstances:

  • if certain costs in the claim are disallowed;

  • if the amount of interest payable is cut off solely because the servicer did not follow the required procedures for conveyance or claim filing; or

  • if any payments the servicer owes the insurer or guarantor (for premiums, surcharges, etc.) are netted against the benefits paid to Fannie Mae.
