What are the requirements for employment documentation provided by a third party vendor?

Employment Documentation Provided by a Third-Party Employment Verification Vendor

The lender may receive employment and income verification directly from a third-party employment verification vendor. These verifications are acceptable as long as

  • the borrower provided proper authorization for the lender to use this verification method,
  • the date of the completed verification is in compliance with B1-1-03, Allowable Age of Credit Documents and Federal Income Tax Returns,
  • the lender has determined that the vendor has made provisions to comply with reasonable quality control requests from both the lender and any subsequent mortgagee, and
  • the lender understands it will be held accountable for the integrity of the information obtained from this source.

If necessary, the lender must supplement these verifications by obtaining any missing information from the borrower or his or her employer.

Loans that are submitted through the DU validation service must comply with all requirements pertaining to the DU validation service. See B3-2-02, DU Validation Service.

For additional information, see B3-3.1-02, Standards for Employment Documentation.
