ULDD Phase 3 Update
July 10, 2018
Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae (the GSEs) are providing an update to Phase 3 of the Uniform Loan Delivery Dataset (ULDD), as a follow up to our January 30, 2018, announcement. The GSEs are introducing new enumerations and clarifying updates to existing ULDD Phase 3 data points, as described below.
Today's updates reflect joint-GSE changes to:
- Further align GSE loan delivery requirements
- Support each GSE's implementation of the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP®) replacement program for high loan-to-value mortgages
- Clarify the down payment data required for affordable housing purchase transactions
- Incorporate additional valid values to allow delivery of escrow item data available on the Uniform Closing Disclosure (UCD).
- Address lender feedback
As a reminder, because the Phase 3 import file contains all Phase 2 data, you can use the Phase 3 import file as soon as you are operationally ready to deliver both Phase 2 and Phase 3 loans during the transition period.
Effective May 20, 2019, loans with Application Received Dates on or after January 1, 2019, must meet the ULDD Phase 3 requirements.
The following documents have been updated and published to the ULDD web page:
