SLS Funding Eligibility Requirements

Below you will find information regarding some of Specialized Loan Servicing’s basic eligibility requirements. The requirements outlined in the SLS Whole Loan Servicing Transfer Manual would take precedence over the requirements in the MPF Guide.

  • You are responsible for meeting all regulatory requirements.
