Applicant applies for a 15 year fixed rate loan that is offered by our secondary market investor, but the loan request does not meet investor’s program requirements and is not accepted. For example, the appraisal comes in too low, or DTI is too high.
We counteroffer with our own 15 year fixed rate in-house product with less stringent and/or different criteria. The differences between the products are different fees, different underwriting standards, and servicing sold vs retained. Both have 15 year fixed rate terms, but we consider these to be different products. If the counteroffer is accepted, could a revised LE be issued for fee tolerance issues? Thanks!
