DocMagic Timeline for Release of New Uniform Instruments

On July 7, 2021, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the “GSEs”) announced changes to all Uniform Instruments, except those being retired - including notes, riders, security instruments, addenda, and special-purpose documents.  The new Uniform Instruments, which include a footer date of 07/2021, are posted to the GSEs’ websites.

It should be noted that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac did not include Spanish translations with the new Uniform Instruments or provide information regarding future updates. 

DocMagic is in the process of updating our forms based on the new model instruments.  As our new versions are created, they are being made available in our testing environment.  Users may also view the new versions in the Forms Manager, saved under a modified Form ID that includes a “PRJ” notation.  For example, the new version of the US3200.NOT can be found using the US3200PRJ.NOT Form ID.  

Currently, all new notes and riders are available for review. New security instruments and special-purpose documents are also being added weekly. 

The updated Uniform Instruments cannot be used in any combination with earlier versions.  For instance, if a July 2021 security instrument is used, the applicable July 2021 note must also be used. For this reason, DocMagic will be transitioning to the new Uniform Instruments in one release for conventional loans.   

The new Uniform Instruments will be released after business hours on July 8, 2022 and will replace all Uniform Instruments currently being provided in packages. 

DocMagic plans on rolling out additional updates following the release of the new Uniform Instruments for conventional loans.  The next phase will include revisions to modified and interest-only instruments.  Additionally, FHA and VA notes and security instruments, which are based on the Unform Instruments, with authorized changes, will be modified.  More information regarding the next phase of releases will be announced at a future date.   

DocMagic recommends that clients review custom forms modeled after the Uniform Instruments for any needed updates.
