Are custodial funds required to be forwarded when a servicing transfer is done?

As required in A4-1-02, Establishing Custodial Bank Accounts, the servicer is responsible for the safekeeping of custodial funds at all times. The transferor servicer must forward to the transferee servicer all P&I and T&I custodial account balances including, but not limited to, the following: 

  • unremitted P&I collections;
  • escrow funds;
  • unapplied funds;
  • loss drafts;
  • accruals on deposit—for example, for the payment of future renewal premiums for lender-purchased MI; and 
  • buydown funds.

If the transferor servicer has advanced delinquent interest or scheduled P&I to Fannie Mae, the transferee servicer must reimburse the transferor servicer once it receives a final accounting of all monies from the transferor servicer.

All new amounts owed must be paid to the appropriate party promptly, as agreed by the parties.

For more information please see Servicing Guide F-1-11, Post-Delivery Servicing Transfers.
