Clarifications: Recent U.S. Bank Bulletins and Lender Operation Updates
U.S. Bank HFA Division released a number of bulletins and Lender Operation Updates in the past two weeks. Here's how they affect Minnesota Housing loans:  
Tax Service Fee Reduction | Lender Operations Update L-2017-011
There is a reduction in U.S. Bank HFA Division's tax service fee:
  • For loans locked on or before April 14, 2017 - $85
  • For loans locked on or after April 17, 2017 - $58
We have updated our Lock, Fee and SRP Guide to reflect this change.
New Conventional DTI Maximum | Bulletin 2017-06
Effective immediately, the maximum debt-to-income ratio for conventional loans is 50%. We have updated our Credit and DTI Matrix to reflect this change.
Condo Guidelines Remain Unchanged | Bulletin 2017-05 
Recent changes to condo guidelines do not impact Minnesota Housing loans. Minnesota Housing lenders have previously been able to commit loans for condos with up to a 97% LTV and have been able to underwrite these loans themselves. Minnesota Housing lenders can disregard the bulletin.
