eDisclosures and eClosings
Freddie Mac has accepted electronic documents since 2005.
The use of electronic loan documents does not have to be an "all or nothing" approach. You can use a hybrid strategy – combination of paper and electronic versions. Freddie Mac accepts a combination of printed and electronic versions of loan documents.
You can start using electronic documents for the initial loan application and all required disclosures with your potential borrowers. You can then have some or all closing documents signed electronically, including those created by your third party service providers.
If you originate eNotes (an electronically-signed promissory note), Freddie Mac has additional requirements and an approval process for selling eMortgages.
Get started today so your business and your borrowers can begin to enjoy the benefits from using electronic loan documents including:
- Giving your borrowers more time to review and understand closing documents, which can lead to a positive closing experience.
- Reducing and making it easier to manage last minute issues with loan closings.
- Making it easier to track and document disclosure timelines for regulatory compliance.
- Streamlining your processes and lowering your costs with the elimination of scanning or photocopying documents, mailing documents to borrowers and storing hard copies.
- Sharing documents securely and more efficiently among the parties involved in loan closings.
