Uniform Residential Loan Application (URLA)

The GSEs redesigned the URLA (Form 1003) and created a new Desktop Underwriter® Specification (DU® Spec) for submitting the redesigned Form 1003 data to DU. We also created a Uniform Loan Application Dataset (ULAD) to show how the Form 1003 is mapped to MISMO v3.4 data.

At the direction of the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the GSEs) announced in June 2019 that the optional use period for the redesigned Uniform Residential Loan Application (URLA) and automated underwriting system (AUS) implementations would be postponed. FHFA has now directed the GSEs to make specific modifications to the URLA form. To allow industry participants time to make the necessary changes, FHFA and the GSEs will be extending the deadlines for implementation of the URLA and AUS datasets; the mandatory use of the redesigned form and data will no longer begin on February 1, 2020.
