Click here to review an itemized third-party originator (TPO) checklist for all the information you'll need to complete the sign-up process.

Step 3: Contact Credit Reporting Companies

Loan Product Advisor requires the use of merged credit for all new customers. To access merged credit reports in Loan Product Advisor, please contact participating credit reporting companies (CRCs) or their affiliates, provide them with your Loan Product Advisor TPO number, and establish service agreements for use with Loan Product Advisor with at least one of them (two or more is recommended).

Even if you have existing relationships with the CRCs, in order to use Loan Product Advisor's merged credit report options, you'll still need to update your account with your TPO number to access merged credit reports and/or merged credit reference numbers through Loan Product Advisor.

Step 4: Sign Up

You're now ready to begin the sign-up process. Complete all the fields/screens on this secure sign-up form in one session, then print and document your confirmation number. If you exit midway through the process your data will not be saved. The sign-up process should take you approximately 8-10 minutes to complete.

Step 5: Log In

Remember to log in to Loan Product Advisor at least once every 90 days to avoid deactivating your user identification number.

Please note that Loan Product Advisor assesses only a loan's eligibility for sale to Freddie Mac and does not analyze compliance with laws, regulations or ordinances, or any requirements imposed by your regulator. It is possible that a loan that otherwise meets Freddie Mac's purchase standards may violate a state or local law or regulation; because of that violation, the loan would be ineligible for sale to Freddie Mac. Please consult with your legal counsel and/or a compliance services vendor to ensure that your loans comply with all applicable laws, regulations, etc.
