C2-1.1-06: Accrued Interest Payments for Regularly Amortizing Mortgages (06/28/2011)

This topic describes the policies for accrued interest payments for regularly amortizing mortgages, including:

Overview

The amount of servicing fee Fannie Mae will pay lenders for servicing regularly amortizing mortgages delivered via a mandatory commitment depends on the remittance option the lender has selected. (See C1-3-01, General Information on Remittance Types, for descriptions of the remittance types.)

Accrued Interest Payments for Regularly Amortizing Mortgages

For A/A remittances, Fannie Mae purchases accrued interest from the last paid installment date for the mortgage up to, but not including, the purchase date. This interest adjustment is based on the unpaid principal balance of the mortgage at the time it is submitted for purchase and the designated pass-through rate of the mortgage (which is the lesser of the net note rate and Fannie Mae’s required yield for mortgages delivered under whole loan commitments that specify the standard pricing option). If interest is prepaid, Fannie Mae deducts accrued interest from the purchase proceeds.

For S/S remittances, Fannie Mae purchases accrued interest from the first day of the purchase month up to, but not including, the purchase date. This interest adjustment is based on the scheduled unpaid principal balance for the mortgage as of the purchase date and the designated pass-through rate of the mortgage.

For S/A remittances, Fannie Mae purchases accrued interest from the first day of the purchase month up to, but not including, the purchase date. This interest adjustment is based on the unpaid principal balance for the mortgage at the time it is submitted for purchase and the designated pass-through rate of the mortgage (which is the lesser of the net note rate and Fannie Mae’s required yield for mortgages delivered under cash commitments that specify the standard pricing option).
