SOMETHING NEW, SOMETHING BLUE?: COLLATERAL UW
Collateral Underwriter by FNMA launches on Monday, January 26th . . . don’t know what that is? Don’t worry, you are not alone
- Here is the definition of Collateral Underwriter:
- Collateral Underwriter (CU™) is a proprietary appraisal risk assessment application developed by Fannie Mae to support proactive management of appraisal quality. CU is an appraisal risk assessment tool that will provide real-time feedback on appraisal submissions starting with the January 26, 2015, UCDP release. The purpose of the tool is to identify appraisals with heightened risk of property eligibility or policy compliance violations, overvaluation, and appraisal quality issues. CU will provide additional transparency and certainty by giving lenders access to the same appraisal analytics used in Fannie Mae’s quality control process. The application will perform an automated risk assessment of appraisals submitted to the Uniform Collateral Data Portal® (UCDP®) and return a risk score, any flags, and messages.
