FHA TOTAL Scorecard Integration
In order to receive an "accept" or "refer" result from FHA TOTAL Scorecard, lenders must use an Automated Underwriting System (AUS) that interfaces with Scorecard. TOTAL Scorecard is not an Automated Underwriting System (AUS). Instead, it is a mathematical equation for use within an AUS. In order to underwrite FHA loans electronically, a mortgagee must process all requests through an AUS that has an interface to communicates with TOTAL Scorecard. In the past, the only options to interface to Scorecard was to use DU®, LP®, CLUES/CLOUT or ZiPPY to complete the underwriting of FHA loans. However, using these AUSs either costs money and/or can be restrictive to using certain investors.
A New Alternative to FHA Decisioning
Loan-Score's new direct system-to-system interface to FHA TOTAL Scorecard offers lenders an alternative to using DU/DO®, LP®, CLUES or ZiPPY to complete the underwriting of FHA loans. Loan-Score connects to Scorecard the same way you're used to, pulls credit, issues an "accept" or "refer," and returns rules-based conditions/stips.
For lenders that are processing a significant amount of FHA volume, connecting to Scorecard can become expensive and limiting. Lenders using our interface are able to instantly return decisions for FHA products. The result? The savings in reduced transaction fees alone makes using Loan-Score a "no-brainer."
How it Works
Loan-Score's integration with TOTAL Scorecard seamlessly returns and incorporates Scorecard's algorithmic results back into our proprietary AUS for complete decisioning and underwriting of FHA loans. If lenders do not use an AUS that interfaces with TOTAL Scorecard, they are still able to use a manual underwriting process, but this costs lenders more money, prolongs cycle times and increases the chance for deal fallout.
