MPF® Traditional Training:Colonial Savings

Servicing Released

Training Overview

This training provides Participating Financial Institutions (PFIs) guidance through the process of origination, processing, underwriting, selling a loan and releasing servicing to Colonial under the MPF® Traditional program.

A couple things to keep in mind during training:

  • The training modules are meant to follow a general best practice process flow.
  • You are responsible to originate, process, underwrite and close in your institution’s name; following standard secondary market procedures and the MPF Guides.
  • The MPF Program requires the use of agency (Fannie/Freddie) documents for origination through closing.
  • Review and familiarize yourself with the MPF Guides.

Tip: If you find an MPF closing package within your doc prep system; know this was not created or approved by the MPF Program.
