USDA: Post-Closing Lender Self Report
September 4, 2019
Revisions to HB 3555-1, Chapter 4, “Lender Responsibilities,” were published on June 28, 2019. Paragraph 4.12 provides guidance on submitting post-closing lender self-reports and refers lenders and loan servicers to Attachment 16-C of Chapter 16 of the handbook for additional information. Attachment 16-C provides the following:
A self‐report must include:
• Borrower ID/GUS Application ID and last name to select the correct file
• Description of the issue
• Provide supporting documentation, if applicable
• Lender/Servicer Contact information
Submit this information via email SFHGLD.Compliance@usda.gov. Response time is dependent on the issue and number of submissions received by USDA. It is the responsibility of the lender to ensure their investor will accept responses from USDA for investor delivery.
The revised Chapter 16 will be published at a later date. However, an advance copy of Chapter 16 with the new Attachment 16-C is available in the USDA LINC Training and Resource Library.
A Procedure Notice (PN) will be issued at least 30 days prior to publication of HB 1-3555, Chapter 16.
Questions regarding this announcement may be directed to the National Office Division at
(202) 720-1452 or via email to SFHGLD.Compliance@usda.gov.
