Multiple Updates to Rate Sheet

The following updates are being implemented on the PennyMac Rate Sheet, effective Monday, October 10th, 2016. Note that each item represents a structural change that will affect the cell location of existing values.

FNMA HomeStyle Pricing added

Lenders must be approved by PennyMac prior to locking or delivering FNMA HomeStyle loans.

LLPA Grid added to support Minimum/Custom Mortgage Insurance

A new grid has been added to the ‘Conv LLPAs’ tab of the rate sheet to support Minimum/Custom MI (also known as Reduced MI). Please note the Portal lock screen will not contain a mortgage insurance option. If a loan is determined to have Minimum/Custom Mortgage Insurance during the pre-purchase review, the price will be adjusted prior to purchase.

Underwriting Borrowers without Traditional Credit

Per announcement 16-16, PennyMac accepts FNMA DU 10.0 Approve/Eligible findings where no borrowers have a credit score. In support of this change, PennyMac has added an additional FICO Range to the grids on the ‘Conv LLPAs’ tab of all rate sheets.

Footnotes Updated on Multiple LLPA tabs

Footnotes will be updated on all rate sheets to promote consistency and improve clarity to the reader. This may cause some grid titles or attribute names to change. Please pay close attention to highlighted verbiage that has changed when the sample rate sheet is posted.

A sample of the updated rate sheet(s) will be posted to the PennyMac Portal after 6:00 PM (PT) on Wednesday, October 5th, 2016 with updates highlighted in yellow. Sample rate sheet(s) will be available for download shortly after the standard rate sheet email notification is sent from ‘PennyMac Correspondent Pricing’.

Note: Sample rate sheet(s) posted to the portal after 6 PM (PT) are intended only to communicate LLPA updates as described above. Loan program base pricing will reflect as blank. Rate sheets posted the following morning will be effective for new commitments.
