Meet the Upcoming Fannie Mae Prefunding Deadline on 9/1/23

Upcoming Fannie Mae Prefunding Deadline

Are you prepared for the upcoming Fannie Mae prefunding deadline on 9/1/23? On March 1, 2023, Fannie Mae announced changes to its selling guide that will take effect on September 1, 2023. These changes were made to improve overall loan quality and reduce the number of loans requiring remediation by lenders.

What’s Changing?

As part of these changes, lenders are now required to conduct a minimum number of prefunding reviews each month. The total number of loans reviewed must meet the lesser of the following criteria:

  • 10% of the prior month’s total number of closings, or
  • 750 loans

Lenders are encouraged to implement these changes immediately, but they must be in full compliance by September 1.

Note: The 10% loan population in the September 1 – September 30 cycle will be based on the total number of loans closed in August.
