Excessive Mortgage Delinquency
The lender must review the borrower’s credit history to determine previous mortgage delinquency, severity (e.g., 30, 60, or 90 days), and recency of the delinquency. Loans with excessive prior mortgage delinquencies are not eligible for delivery to Fannie Mae. Excessive prior mortgage delinquency is defined as any mortgage tradeline that has one or more 60-, 90-, 120-, or 150-day delinquency reported within the 12 months prior to the credit report date. See B3-5.3-02, Payment History, and B3-5.3-07, Significant Derogatory Credit Events — Waiting Periods and Re-establishing Credit for additional information.
