Prospective MBS investors are reminded that in determining whether to purchase any initial offering of MBS certificates, the only information we authorize for this purpose consists of our then-current MBS Prospectus, the related Prospectus Supplement and any information that we have otherwise incorporated into those documents by reference. Following initial offerings, we also provide updated information and corrections regarding mortgage pools through our PoolTalk® application and other locations on www.fanniemae.com/mbs/. Investors are cautioned against reliance on any unauthorized information or representation, which may prove inaccurate or misleading.
In addition, we note that our eligibility criteria and policies for the mortgage loans that back our MBS certificates are set forth in our Selling and Servicing Guides (Guides) and updates and amendments to these Guides, and are summarized in the section "FANNIE MAE PURCHASE PROGRAM - Selling and Servicing Guides" of the MBS Prospectus. We amend our Guides and our eligibility criteria and policies from time to time. As a result, it is possible that not all the mortgage loans in a particular pool are subject to the same eligibility standards. It is also possible that the standards described in the Guides at any particular time may differ from the standards in effect when loans in a particular pool were originated. Finally, we note that our eligibility and loan underwriting requirements or policies may be modified or waived by us on a case-by-case basis with respect to the loans in a particular pool.
Investors may contact our Fixed-Income Securities Helpline at 1-888-BOND HLP (1-888-266-3457) if they have additional questions.
