The table below provides the requirements when the security property consists of more than one parcel of real estate.
|✓||Multiple Parcels Requirements|
|Each parcel must be conveyed in its entirety.|
|Parcels must be adjoined to the other, unless they comply with the following exception. Parcels that otherwise would be adjoined, but are divided by a road, are acceptable if the parcel without a residence is a non-buildable lot (for example, waterfront properties where the parcel without the residence provides access to the water). Evidence that the lot is non-buildable must be included in the loan file.|
|Each parcel must have the same basic zoning (for example, residential, agricultural).|
|The entire property may contain only one dwelling unit. Limited additional non-residential improvements, such as a garage, are acceptable. For example, the adjoining parcel may not have an additional dwelling unit. An improvement that has been built across lot lines is acceptable. For example, a home built across both parcels where the lot line runs under the home is acceptable.|
|The mortgage must be a valid first lien that covers each parcel.|
