Guidelines for Condominium/Cooperative (Co-op) Loans
The purpose of this job aid is to provide additional information on data fields required in Loan Delivery when the property legal structure is a condominium or cooperative.
For detailed instructions on how to perform other tasks, see the Loan Delivery User Guide, eLearning tutorials, or other job aids. If you do not have access to Loan Delivery and require it, please contact your Technology Manager administrator.
Use of Condo Project Manager™ (CPM™) can reduce the number of project fields required for condominium loans. CPM is a web-based system that centralizes and documents condominium project reviews and supports Fannie Mae condo project acceptance guidelines. For more information, visit the Condo, Co-op, and PUD Eligibility page on fanniemae.com.
