Project Review Requirements 
The project eligibility requirements for DU Refi Plus loan casefiles are being updated to reflect that in additionto the current representation and warranty that the property is not in a condominium hotel or motel, or acooperative hotel or motel, the lender must also represent and warrant that the property is not in a houseboatproject or a timeshare or segmented ownership project.

Cooperative properties with subordinate financing 
Announcement SEL-2011-05 clarified Fannie Mae’s long-standing policy that cooperative share loans that aresubject to subordinate financing are not eligible for delivery to Fannie Mae. DU will be updated to issue anIneligible recommendation on any cooperative loan casefile that is subject to subordinate financing. Thischange will not apply to DU Refi Plus loan casefiles.
Subject net cash flow

Calculate and document the net cash flow on the subject property according to the Fannie Mae Selling Guide. If the borrower is being qualified with the entire payment, without benefit of rental income, rental income documentation for the subject property is not required for  qualifying purposes. However, the lender must report the monthly rent at delivery. Refer to the Fannie Mae Selling Guide for permissible sources for obtaining monthly rent for reporting purposes.
