Freddie Mac postpones deadline for loan-level data.
Now Freddie Mac, with FHFA's approval, has changed the effective date for this requirement to apply to mortgages with application dates on or after July 1, 2010, according to a news release.
For such mortgages, Freddie will be required to collect the following unique identifiers:
* appraiser's state license number
* supervisory appraiser's state license number, if applicable
* loan originator identifier
* loan origination company identifier
Although the effective date has been changed, Freddie is encouraging lenders to deliver the four data elements listed above as soon as sellers have them available in their updated systems. Freddie has noted that its selling system will be updated in December to allow sellers to begin delivering these data elements before the end of the year.
