DU Validation Service Verification Report Vendors & Approved Vendor Tools

Impact of COVID-19 on the DU Validation Service

To align with policy outlined in Lender Letter LL-2020-03, Impact of COVID-19 on Originations, there are temporary changes to the DU validation service in effect until further notice. Review the release notes for more information.

Simplify the Cycle

Shorter mortgage approval times help you close loans faster. Take advantage of the Desktop Underwriter® (DU®) validation service, which uses third-party data vendors to independently validate borrower income, employment, and asset data, providing our lenders with Day 1 Certainty® on validated loan components. In addition, other approved vendor tools may provide relief from representations and warranties.

As a lender participating in the DU validation service, you can use vendors of your choice. They provide reports accepted by Fannie Mae. To mitigate the risk that Fannie Mae assumes by offering representation and warranty relief on validated loan components, we have a structured process and guidelines for determining eligible verification reports. However, vendors and other approved vendor tools are subject to lenders’ requirements and approval processes.
