Cash-on-Hand as Income Source

Borrowers may use cash-on-hand for the down payment and closing costs, subject to specific criteria

  • Limited to one-unit, principal residences

Cash-on-hand funds will not be used to calculate reserves (if reserves are required)

DU will use the “Cash-on-Hand” amount to calculate the available funds to close

The lender must verify/document the following:

  • Borrower customarily uses cash for expenses; usage is consistent with previous payment practices.
  • Borrower's credit report indicates limited (or no) use of credit, and no depository relationship.
  • Borrower must provide signed statement disclosing the source of funds (and that they were not borrowed).
  • The borrower must deposit with a financial institution at the time of application, or no less than 30 days before closing, funds sufficient for the down payment and closing costs.

mcm borrower options
MCM: Borrower Options

What are borrower options?

  • Underwriting guidelines used in conjunction with the basic MCM platform to provide additional flexibility for targeted borrowers.
    • They are not separate products.

When underwriting an MCM mortgage, how can the options be used?

    • To use the options, first qualify the borrower for the standard MCM, then determine eligibility for the desired option.
    • Some flexibilities require manual underwriting, while some can be done in DU.

Using Desktop Underwriter

Desktop Underwriter supports most MyCommunityMortgage loans

  • MCM permitted for Approve-Eligible along with EA Levels I and II only,with appropriate messaging
  • Standard Loan Level Price Adjustments (LLPAs) for EA Levels I and II do not apply for MCM in most cases
  • Lenders must be approved/activated to offer MCM through DU, and there is an annual volume allocation for MCM*

*Loans originated under MRB programs do not affect the lenders allocation. The allocation affected is that of the Master Servicer purchasing the bond loan.
