FHA announced in Information Bulletin #16-36, dated June 8, 2016, that it will implement a change to its Technology Open to Lenders (TOTAL) Mortgage Scorecard. As a result of this change, the TOTAL Mortgage Scorecard will no longer return either Upfront or Annual Mortgagee Insurance Premiums (MIP) factors to an Automated Underwriting System (AUS) for subsequent return on the AUS’s feedback certificate. FHA advises lenders to consult its Single Family Policy Handbook (4000.1 Appendix 1) for the applicable MIP factors.
Effective Date: June 11, 2016
