"Refreshed Credit Reports" Required at Closing
Fannie Mae's new Loan Quality Initiative now requires that all lenders "Refresh" a borrower's credit report within 10 days of funding. In the past, some lenders did this check and some did not. A "refreshed" credit report will not count as an inquiry against the borrower's credit score but it will show new accounts, increased credit card balances, as well any new credit inquiries. If any new items appear, the borrower will be required to provide written explanation and documentation before the loan may proceed. If a new late payment or collection appears, the credit needs to be re-scored with the underwriting decision based on the new credit score. Fannie Mae also requires that all lenders verify the borrowers employment within 10 days of funding.
