Servicer Expense Reimbursement Notification of Updates to LoanSphere Invoicing
Fannie Mae Expense Reimbursement will be consolidating the available expense reimbursement claim line item categories and subcategories in the Black Knight Financial Services LoanSphere Invoicing Application on March 21, 2016. This update will streamline the claim line item choices in the application for improved consistency in submitting and processing expense reimbursement requests.
A full listing of the claim line items that will be impacted is included in the Servicer Expense Reimbursement Line Item Submission Changes. As previously communicated on Nov. 12, 2015, to ensure readiness servicers must take necessary action to prepare their systems and processes for the line item updates. All new line items are currently available for use.
If you have any questions or concerns related to the LoanSphere Invoicing Line Item Consolidation project, please submit your inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
