funded by CBC Mortgage Agency

Documentation Requirements 

Secondary financing will close in the name of your company. Prior to closing, CBC Mortgage Agency will issue a funding obligation letter (FOL) for the second lien. Secondary financing will be transferred to CBC Mortgage Agency after closing. Second mortgages are required to be registered with MERS; you will need to provide a MERS number for the second mortgage. Additional guidance can be found in CBC Mortgage Agency program guidelines, which can be found here.

IMPORTANT NOTES REGARDING DELIVERY OF THE SECOND LIEN TO CBC MORTGAGE AGENCY. Your FHA First Mortgage may not be insurable if you do not have an executed Assignment of the Second Mortgage to CBC Mortgage Agency OR a Secondary Financing MERS Transfer to CBC Mortgage Agency before you receive your final FHA Mortgage Insurance Certificate. Therefore, it is recommended that you transfer the MIN to CBC Mortgage Agency as soon as possible after closing (within 48 hours) to ensure that the MIN will be in CBC Mortgage Agency’s name within 72 hours.

Under the terms of the funding obligation letter, your company extends funds at the closing table on behalf of CBC Mortgage Agency for the borrower’s down payment. These funds are reimbursed by CBC Mortgage Agency at the time the first mortgage is purchased. FHA requires that the secondary financing be in the name of the government agency prior to insuring, so it is extremely important that all second mortgage MINS are registered with MERS as soon as possible (within 48 hours) after closing and that the TOS/TOB to CBC Mortgage Agency be executed immediately (to ensure that the MIN will be in CBC Mortgage Agency’s name within 72 hours).

The second must be transferred to CBC Mortgage Agency as soon as the file has been closed.
