Avoid a “Fatal” Message in Freddie Mac UCDP

“Pride of ownership.” “Crime-ridden area.” “Desirable area.” On January 26, Freddie Mac Loan Collateral Advisor® began delivering fatal feedback messages that prevent a “Successful” status on the Uniform Collateral Data Portal® Submission Summary Report for appraisal reports if they contain these terms and phrases and certain others that may be prohibited or potentially biased.

For certain words or phrases, delivery of the report will result in a fatal severity feedback message identifying the prohibited language.

Ensuring the use of objective language is crucial for appraisal reports. Xactus Appraisal ScorecardX helps lenders quickly and easily detect potential biases.
