Close loans with confidence. Loan Closing Advisor helps make your process more efficient by providing you with actionable feedback on the accuracy of your UCD XML file, to assist you in identifying and correcting errors before you close a loan.
Deliver the Uniform Closing Dataset
The Uniform Closing Dataset (UCD) is now required for all loans delivered to Freddie Mac with a note date on or after September 25, 2017. Loan Closing Advisor, Freddie Mac's UCD collection solution UCD, helps you validate that your closing data aligns with the UCD. But Loan Closing Advisor is more than just a collection solution: It helps drive efficiency by providing actionable feedback on the accuracy of your UCD XML file. So you save time and money while reducing the likelihood of loan remediation and delays in delivery.
Find Errors Sooner
