ARM 7-6

This job aid guides you through the steps for entering commitment data for ARM 7-6™ Mortgage Loans (plan # 02255) using the Multifamily committing and delivery system, C&D™.

A Fannie Mae Multifamily ARM 7-6 Mortgage Loan (ARM Plan #02255) has a specific set of terms that are available through the ARM execution.  Specifically, it is a 7-year, Adjustable Rate Mortgage Loan with a 6% maximum MBS pass-through rate (MBS Cap).  

Note: For loans with a Rate Adjustment Index of "1 month British Bankers LIBOR-Daily" the Mortgage-Backed Security (MBS) issuance date must occur prior to the first payment date. The Lender must deliver the loan at least eight business days prior to the first payment date to allow time for securitization to occur prior to the first payment date.
