What are Day 1 Certainty approved vendors?

Fannie Mae Day 1 Certainty and the Desktop Underwriter® (DU®) streamline lending by providing lenders with an automated digital loan origination tool that reduces manual processes and ensures quicker turnaround times.

Specifically, D1C-approved providers are third-party data vendors certified to validate applicant information, like employment and income, for D1C-eligible loans.

There are three types of authorized report suppliers:

  • Verification of income and employment 
  • Tax transcript reports
  • Asset verification

Certified verification solutions, like Truework, have been approved by Fannie Mae to provide high-quality reports for the Desktop Underwriter® tool. Eligible verifications typically contain a DU® reference number, which can be sent electronically to the Desktop Underwriter®.

Benefits of working with Day 1 Certainty approved vendors

Working with D1C-approved third-party data providers allows lenders to operate more efficiently and create a better user experience while receiving the benefits of Fannie Mae Day 1 Certainty.

Here’s a look at the advantages lenders get by streamlining mortgage applications and loan origination processes when using vendors that have achieved Day 1 Certainty:

  • Less paperwork: Automated digital verification means lenders need to collect less paperwork from borrowers, resulting in more efficiency in loan origination.
  • Faster loan turnaround times: Lenders can reduce cycle times by up to 12 days when employment and income are validated at the loan level through Fannie Mae’s DU® validation service. Vendors like Truework give lenders access to D1C-approved verifications in seconds or minutes rather than days and weeks.
  • Improved borrower experience: Leveraging digital tools to reduce friction in the application process and ensure quicker turnaround times creates a better borrower experience that reduces loan fallout.
  • Lower risk of loan buybacks: By using Truework and the DU® validation service, lenders can receive freedom from reps and warrants on eligible income and employment validation reports.

Why lenders should choose Truework to support their DU validation service
