MPF Xtra® Training:Capital Markets Cooperative

Servicing

Post-Closing

Congratulations, you've sold your loan to the MPF® Program!

Now that MPF has purchased your loan, you need to overnight the custody file to the document custodian and upload the servicing file to CMC Funding via the eMPF website.

For any questions regarding CMC Funding delivery, please see the CMC Funding Whole Loan Servicing Transfer Manual.

Your Responsibilities - Delivering the Custody Package:

  1. Prepare the custody file folder. 

    • For each loan sold to MPF, you must deliver the custody documents to the MPF Document Custodian (Wells Fargo), which maintains the safekeeping of your MPF custody file. 
    • Place the custody documents into a legal size, manila file folder.
    • You must attach a label to the top right corner of the folder. 
    • Labels must contain the following information:
      label example
    • For New PFIs Only: MPF Provider will provide the first set of file labels. You are responsible for creating labels after those are depleted.

    Tip: Use our handy label template!

  2. Proof the documents to be included in the custody file folder.

    • Use the MPF Initial Certification Review Checklist (Exhibit K-X) as a job aid to ensure all documents in the collateral file are executed and delivered to the Custodian in accordance with the requirements of the MPF program. This checklist compares the custody file information to the information submitted to MPF at the time of purchase.
    • If any information within this custody package is inconsistent with the information you submitted to MPF at the time your loan was purchased, you must email MPFCustody@fhlbc.com and they will correct this information.
    • If you identify a discrepancy impacting the loan amount, first payment date or interest rate, contact the MPFServiceCenter@fhlbc.com to have the loan reversed and refunded.

    Note: Do not include this checklist with the document package you send to Wells Fargo.

    Tip: Proof the custody file to eliminate excess fees: Learn more about Custody Fees.

  3. Prepare the documents to be included in the custody file folder.

    The custody file must contain the following documents:
    • Original Note must be endorsed without recourse to the “Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago”.
    • Certified copy of Assignment or certified copy of the first two/three pages of the MOM Mortgage (original to be sent for recording).
      • If the loan is closed with a Mortgage or Deed of Trust,  a certified copy of the Assignment of Mortgage or Deed of Trust (based on where the property is located) to MERS is required. The Assignment must contain the 18 digit MERS Mortgage Identification Number (MIN) and the MERS phone number (1-888-679-6377). For additional MERS Assignment information, see the CMC Funding Whole Loan Servicing Transfer Manual for MPF Xtra.
      • If the loan is closed using a MOM Mortgage, an assignment is not required. 
    • If applicable:
      • Certified copy of borrower’s power of attorney
      • Certified copy of trust agreement
      • If third party originated: certified copy of all intervening assignments

      Note: The first page of any copies in the custody folder must be stamped "True and Certified Copy" with initials or signature below the certification.
