Contract Extension Fees for Best Efforts Cash Contracts

When you use the selling system to sell loans for Cash and select best efforts (servicing-released or retained), you get the benefits of a securities execution without the additional considerations of a swap. You can extend your expiration date for a fee at any time prior to funding, as long as the loan is not set for funding. You're also allowed a maximum of two extensions per contract.

Freddie Mac will charge a contract extension fee based on the length of the extension period. Extension fees are subject to change without notice, and we'll communicate any future fee changes as needed.
