In January 2013, Fannie Mae introduced their proprietary appraisal messages in the UCDP® (Uniform Collateral Data Portal).  These messages have helped lenders detect data inconsistencies and improve appraisal data.

Beginning in December 2014, Fannie Mae will begin to retire a number of their proprietary appraisal messages.  Then, in January 2015, Fannie Mae will elevate the severity level for 21 of their proprietary appraisal messages relating to eligibility violations.  The severity level for these messages will change from a warning message that is automatically overridden to a hard stop that will require a manual override or submission of a corrected appraisal.

a la mode's formfillers, WinTOTAL and TOTAL, will both be in compliance with these hard stops.  However, because some of the new hard stops rely on data that is only available to Fannie Mae, WinTOTAL and TOTAL won't be able to implement rules for all of them.  For example, one of the new hard stops is triggered if the subject property is possibly a hotel or motel.  Because the program doesn't have access to this information, it is unable to properly trigger or suppress this hard stop.


Of the 21 new hard stops being introduced by Fannie Mae, the following will not be implemented in WinTOTAL or TOTAL:
