           approved ID number and is 7127400001.

2.       If you are approved by HUD and not
         currently sponsored by Flagstar Bank,
         contact your local account executive for the
         FHA applications for sponsorship.
1.   If you are approved, take a complete and accurate
     loan application from your borrower.

2.   Verify your loan amount is within the FHA loan limit.*

     three days of your initial loan application and
     provided to underwriting at time of submission.

     file to Flagstar Bank Loantrac Web site.*

2.   Register as an FHA loan and complete the Government
     Lending section in our Loantrac system.

3.   Send loan data through AUS/Credit Submission. Choose
     either DU or LP. Reminder: DU and LP do not make the
     loan decision. The loan data entered is automatically sent
     to the FHA Total Scorecard System for a loan decision.

4.   Obtain findings and credit report through the FHA Total
     Scorecard System and verify data entered into system is
     accurate to the findings data (i.e., income, assets, loan
     amount, rate, PITI and reserves).

     our Web site under Help & Training and choose Live WebEx Training. You can review the current day,
     upcoming, daily and weekly sessions available.
5.   Determine if Total Scorecard response is Approve, Accept or

6.   If response is Refer, review Doc. #9340 on our Web site for the
     documentation required for underwriting submission. A Refer
     response for credit issues requires explanation letters and/or
     additional documentation to justify approval. A Refer response for
     a ratio issue requires compensating factors to justify approval.*

7.   If your loan received an Approve or Accept response and the data
     integrity is accurate, no explanation letter is required for any late
     payments on trade lines; no collections need to be paid and
     excessive ratios do not require any compensating factors for
     approval. Other documentation waivers may apply.

8.    If the data integrity is accurate and the file does not obtain
      an Approve, Accept or Refer response, the loan will
      automatically be manually underwritten.

9.    Order CAIVR (Credit Alert Interactive Voice Response)
      number for all borrowers through the FHA Connection
      System. Enter the CAIVR in your LOS system in order for
      this information to be included on your Mortgage Credit
      Analysis Worksheet.*

10.   A defaulted or claim on the CAIVR number requires an
      exception for approval by underwriting.

11.   If loan is a refinance or a purchase with property address,
      order Case Number Assignment through the FHA
      Connection System. Not applicable if loan submission is
      for a TBD property.*
12.   A CAIVR number and Case Number Assignment are not mandatory to
      obtain a valid response through the FHA Total Scorecard System. If the
      CAIVR number and Case Number are not provided at time of loan
      submission, both will be a condition of loan approval.

13.   Choose the Government Underwriting New Submission cover sheet from
      our Loantrac system and provide as many documents as possible from the
      list provided on the cover sheet.

14.   Note. If the FHA Total Scorecard does not return an Approve, Accept or
      Refer response, you will not be able to choose the Government
      Underwriting New Submission cover sheet in our Loantrac system. You
      must obtain the cover sheet in our Seller’s Guide, Doc. #3218, from our
      Web site. Complete the cover sheet and upload or fax it with the other
      submission documents.

15.   Include a separate cover letter to Underwriting if there are any unusual
      circumstances that will assist the underwriter during the underwriting

16.   Your submission can include limited documentation or as much as you
      prefer. The more documents that are provided up front, the fewer conditions
      you should have on your approval letter.

      government turn time hours on our Web site for purchases, refinances and
      conditions on a daily basis.

19.   After the underwriter has made the loan decision, you can view the approval
      letter or denial letter in the Loan Information link on our wholesale Web site

20.   An underwriter will call you with the loan decision. You can discuss any
      conditions on the approval or discuss the reasons for loan denial at this

21.   Once the loan is approved, begin to gather all conditions on the loan

22.   You should order the appraisal at this time unless the loan was submitted as
      a TBD property.*

23.   All required standard forms and/or FHA forms that were not included with
      your submission will be a condition on the approval letter.
*     When ordering the appraisal, you must make sure the appraiser is both FHA-eligible and eligible by Flagstar Bank. This information can be found at Click on Eligible Appraiser in the Search link. Locate the FHA appraiser under Eligible HUD FHA Appraisers first, and then
      determine if the appraiser is Flagstar-eligible using the Search Criteria section.
24.   Any income documentation, asset documentation etc., listed in
      your FHA Total Scorecard findings report that was not included
      with your submission will be a condition on the approval letter.

25.   Review your approval letter and compare your conditions to the
      findings from the FHA Total Scorecard findings report. If you have
      questions regarding any conditions, you can contact the
      underwriter or contact the Government Underwriting Support Desk
      at (800) 447-7181, option 2, for additional assistance.

26.   After all conditions are obtained, upload or fax the conditions to
      Underwriting. Choose the Underwriting Conditions Cover sheet
      from our Loantrac system.

27.   When the conditions have been reviewed by underwriting, the
      status of your loan will be updated and you can review the
      updated approval letter in the Loan Info Link on our Web site.

28.   It is important to send all conditions at one time in order to obtain
      a Clear to Close on your loan.
1.   Once the loan is Clear to Close, read all closing instructions carefully and
     contact Underwriting if you have any questions prior to having the closing
     package prepared.

2.   If you are a broker, you must order your closing package through
     Government Wholesale Lending. Closing package order requests can be
     found on our Web site, Doc. #9321. It is important that this form be
