Loan Casefile Archival Policy
DU loan casefiles are archived and no longer retained in DU 28 months from the date the loan casefile was last updated. This time frame is intended to ensure that the total volume of loans in the system is at a manageable level, reducing the time required by DU to search for and retrieve loan casefiles.
After a loan casefile is archived from DU, it cannot be restored. If a loan casefile that has been archived must be re-underwritten, a new loan casefile must be created and submitted to DU. The loan casefile will be subject to the policies in effect for the current version of DU. Fannie Mae is not responsible for retaining loan casefiles for the lender.
