The servicer must apply any funds remaining after payoff in an interest rate buydown plan account in accordance with the applicable mortgage loan agreement. If the servicer is holding the remaining buydown funds, it must include them with its remittance of the payoff proceeds. The servicer must follow the procedures in Applying Funds Remaining After Payoff in an Interest Rate Buydown Account in F-1-09, Processing Mortgage Loan Payments and Payoffs for specific instructions for applying buydown funds after payoff of the mortgage loan.
The servicer must be able to identify whether the borrower on a first lien mortgage loan currently has an HSA note, and reference it in any payoff statement it issues for the first lien mortgage loan.
In the event of a sale or transfer of the property, this reference must remind the borrower that the HSA note is due and payable in full.
In the event of a refinance, this reference must clearly
remind the borrower that the HSA note must continue to be paid, and
state that payoff of the HSA note is not required to release the first lien mortgage loan.
If the borrower or servicer of the first lien mortgage loan needs information related to an HSA note (such as where to send a payment), the servicer may send a request for information to Fannie Mae’s SF CPM division (see F-4-03, List of Contacts). The servicer must be able to promptly redirect any HSA note payments received to the party designated by Fannie Mae.
