U are lucky to have a six months lock out. Most of the lenders wants 12 to 24 months

That is very reasonable.

Why the concern dblbogey?

Don't you think you should have a little risk for your reward?

Is that 1x30 in the first 6? Most are 2x30 or 1x60 in the first 12.

I'd be take that if I were you. Follow up with your borrowers for six months to make sure they don't have an emergency.

It needs to spell out the terms of the buy back. It really needs to say that you only buy it back in the case of misdeeds

Richone, Fraud is a buyback anytime it is discovered. OP was talking about Early Payment Defaults (EPD). They come in different flavors but all correspondent contracts contain some version.

All also contain provisions for Early Pay Off (EPO). Usually a prepayment in the first 4-6 months is common. In that case there is a recapture of any premium pricing and the SRP.

Every wholesale contract I have seen contains a buyback provision of some sort. If you haven't seen these before it's because you haven't read your contract, or you have been working in a retail correspondent environment where your company isn't really the originator and is just being paid a referral fee.

"retail correspondent environment where your company isn't really the originator and is just being paid a referral fee."


Our definitions of "retail correspondent" must be different. Correspondent contracts have some serious teeth to them.
