STG Balloon Mortgage Modification Endorsement Guideline 1
Explanation:There are two Balloon Mortgage Endorsements:
(1) The endorsement issued at the time the balloon mortgage is created. The mortgage provides for a balloon payment and modification of the interest rate and financing in accordance with the FNMA Rider;
(2) The endorsement issued at the time of recordation of the subsequent modification agreement.
Underwriting Requirements:(1) The Balloon Mortgage Endorsement may be issued at the time of the Loan Policy if the mortgage on one-to-four family property contains a Balloon Mortgage Rider.
(2) The (modification) Balloon Mortgage Endorsement may be issued upon recordation of the modification if the policy is down dated. Verify that the mortgagor remains the owner and is not subject to a bankruptcy.
