What is the procedure for verifying the property value for mortgage insurance termination?

The servicer must cancel borrower-purchased MI at the request of the borrower in accordance with Borrower-Initiated Termination of Conventional Mortgage Insurance Based on Original Value of the Property or Borrower-Initiated Termination of Conventional Mortgage Insurance Based on Current Value of the Property, as applicable in B-8.1-04, Termination of Conventional Mortgage Insurance. 

On one-unit properties, the servicer must order an interior and exterior BPO, or appraisal if the servicer determines it is required by law, using Fannie Mae's servicing solutions system. On two- to four- unit properties, the servicer must order an interior and exterior appraisal using Fannie Mae's servicing solutions system. 

The BPO or appraisal to determine the current value of the property is at the expense of the borrower and the servicer must only order the valuation after the servicer receives the applicable fee. The borrower must be charged the cost of the BPO or appraisal based on the following table. 

Valuation Type Cost
BPO $150
Restricted appraisal one-unit $325
Appraisal two- to four-unit $750

If the borrower is requesting MI termination based on current value of the property because of property improvements made by the borrower since origination, the servicer must include details provided by the borrower of the property improvements to Fannie Mae. 

For more information please see F-1-02, Escrow, Taxes, Assessments, and Insurance
