New! Quarterly Fix Up Webinar Training
Beginning in March, we are offering a quarterly Fix Up webinar training in lieu of that month's Fix Up check-in call. These quarterly trainings are designed for new lenders or those who need a program refresher.
Please click here to register for the March training which takes place on Wednesday, March 17 from 9:00 - 10:00 a.m.
If you are already signed up for the monthly check-in calls, you will need to register spearately for the quarterly webinar training.
Updated Underwriting Worksheet
Minnesota Housing's Fix Up Loan Program Underwriting Worksheet was recently updated. The worksheet is now fillable and functional. You can find the Underwriting Worksheet in the Forms Guide & Glossary. As a reminder, an underwriting worksheet is required for all Fix Up loan files, but you do not have to use Minnesota Housing's worksheet; you're able to use an internal underwriting worksheet.
New URLA Uploads in Minnesota Housing's Commitment System
For lenders who use the new URLA for their Fix Up loans, Minnesota Housing's commitment system will accept the URLA starting on February 22, 2021. The 1003 upload will continue to be available.
The URLA/1003 Upload Guide and the Home Improvement System Guide provide detailed instructions on how to upload the new URLA. As a reminder, the Home Improvement System Guide also provides information on how to update the system, complete the True & Certify, and so much more!
