Understanding Your Loan Purchase Letter

You may have received a letter from us notifying you that we purchased your loan. The letter is informational, and you do not need to take any action.

Here’s what you need to know

Fannie Mae buys loans from lenders, replenishing the lenders’ funds so they can provide new mortgages for more homebuyers.

Your mortgage servicer — the company that you send your monthly payments to — and your loan terms remain the same when we purchase your loan. You should continue to send all mortgage payments to your servicer. Fannie Mae is not your servicer.

Fannie Mae’s loan purchase letter:

  • Is informational — no action is required.
  • Identifies Fannie Mae as the owner/investor for your loan.
  • Identifies your mortgage servicer, who provides customer service.
  • Emphasizes that Fannie Mae is not your servicer.
