GSEs to Retire PDF Extraction & Non-MISMO Appraisal Formats

If your organization is not accepting 100% MISMO ready files, there is no better time to begin understanding your options. Accepting MISMO-ready files from the start is the best place to start, but here are some possibilities to help you transition.

Finding a PDF Extraction Source Outside the Portal

UCDP requires MISMO-ready files be submitted to the portal, so when the in-portal source for extraction is removed, lenders who are still receiving appraisals as PDFs will need to find an alternate source to convert the files. Veros has offered PDF extraction services independent of the portal and will continue to do so in order to assist the lenders who still require this assistance.

Extraction requires first-generation PDF, which means the PDF file was provided directly from the appraiser’s desktop and was not modified, copied or scanned in the process of transmitting the file to the lender and/or to UCDP. Most PDFs can be exported via Veros’ “Tier 1” extraction process, which is a fully electronic extraction of the appraisal file. When a PDF requires additional effort to extract the lender can escalate the file to Tier 2 and ultimately Tier 3 appraisal extraction levels which incorporate a combination of digital and manual extraction, or fully manual extraction (respectively).

If receiving MISMO-ready files is not yet an option for your organization, click here to contact a Veros representative about how your team can begin transitioning to these non-portal PDF extraction services.

Ready to Step Up to a System-to-System Integration?

If your loan volume falls somewhere between manageable uploads to the UCDP web portal and large-scale direct integrations, then you’re one of thousands of lenders looking for a mid-sized solution and their own connection point. Veros’ Pathway provides just such a solution.

Pathway provides a system-to-system connection accepting first-generation PDFs and converting to the UCDP-approved MISMO format. Pathway also provides lenders the ability to preview and resolve potential UAD errors prior to submitting to the portal – all seamlessly through the Pathway.
