Allied Home Mortgage Corporation

TO:                  Pennsylvania Agents
FROM:            Underwriting Department
DATE:             November 16, 2011
RE:                  Allied Home Mortgage Corporation


On November 1, 2011 HUD issued a press release suspending Allied Home Mortgage Corporation from originating and underwriting new mortgages insured by the Federal Housing Administrator. In addition, the Government National Mortgage Association has also suspended the company from issuing any Mortgage backed Securities. The press release, a copy of which is attached, cites numerous violations of HUD/FHA requirements.

As a result of these announcements, Old Republic Title agents should not close any loans involving Allied Home Mortgage Corporation unless they have good funds in their escrow account for the loan.  For purposes of this Alert the term "good funds" should be construed to mean that the funds for the loan have actually been received by the bank and have been credited to the appropriate escrow account.  You should also contact your bank to ensure that no wired funds can be reversed without prior notification to you.

Should you have any questions, please contact our underwriting counsel: Steven Gratman; Bill Corrigan; Paula Mack or Dwight Edwards.

This Alert has been published for the sole purpose of meeting the Company’s predetermined underwriting criteria and should in no way be construed as slanderous or defamatory material against any of the parties named herein.
