Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac UAD Update
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have released the specifics on phase two of the Uniform Appraisal Dataset (UAD) updates. The second phase will go into effect in
- Quality of Construction Rating (subject and comparables)
- Location Rating (subject and comparables)
- View Rating (subject and comparables)
- Condition Rating (subject and comparables)
Each of the data fields above has associated UAD edits that will be returned in the UCDP if the data provided is incomplete or the format is invalid as defined in the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac UAD Technical Specifications. When these warning edits are converted to fatal UAD edits, if one or more of these edits is issued it will result in Hard Stop 401 (UAD Compliance Check Failure) and a “Not Successful” status will be issued in the UCDP. If the lender or appraisal vendor receives a “Not Successful” status in the UCDP, the lender or vendor must resubmit a corrected appraisal with the required data in the correct format to ensure a “Successful” status. If the UCDP issues a “Not Successful” status for an appraisal, the loan will not be eligible for delivery to either GSE.
