Training Overview

Complete Training to Understand Your Responsibilities:

Please review important program timeframes for these steps.

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

Your interaction with MPF in the loan process will include:

  • Providing loan information to MPF using the automated (batch) submission process. The Fannie Mae 3.0 XML ULDD is the required format. 
  • Pricing and locking the loan using the eMPF website.
  • After disbursing loan proceeds and not less than seven business days prior to price expiration, you will request loan funding using eMPF. If you do not have a full seven days, you will need to purchase an extension. 
  • The custody folder is to be pre-certified by the MPF Document Custodian no less than three business days prior to price expiration. 
    • Monitor the pre-custody reports, making any corrections required, to ensure the loan is certified. If necessary, purchase an extension. 

IBMC as servicer:

  • IBMC purchases the servicing and will board the loan onto IBMC's servicing system. 
  • The business day after you lock a loan with MPF, IBMC will send an email confirmation with the IBMC loan number and a MERS MIN number.  
  • Review the IBMC Concurrent Servicing Sale Manual for servicing requirements.
  • IBMC will pay the SRP once a month for loans boarded on their system the previous month.
  • IBMC will charge the following fees for each serviced mortgage and net the fees from the SRP: 
    • Tax Service Fee: $79
    • Processing Fee: $150
    • Escrow Waiver Fee: 0.25% of the unpaid principal balance at the time of sale to MPF (also charged to the borrower if escrow is waived at any point during the life of the loan)
