USA PATRIOT Act Notice
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OBTAINING A MORTGAGE LOAN
To help us prevent fraud and to help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who applies for and/or obtains a mortgage loan.
What this means for you: When you apply for and/or obtain a mortgage loan, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
Application is required and is subject to credit review and approval. Full documentation required. Not all applicants will be approved. Loan secured by a lien against your property. Fees & charges apply and may vary by State, product, and loan amount. Terms, conditions & limitations apply. Additional payments of taxes & property insurance are required. Rates are subject to change without notice and current rates may not be available at loan commitment, lock-in or closing. You may be required to lock in a rate when you apply. Refinancing may increase the length of your loan and the total amount of interest you pay over the life of your loan. Important information relating specifically to your loan will be contained in the loan documents, which alone will establish your rights and obligations under the loan plan. Call for details.
Average HARP Savings:
Average actual monthly payment savings based on total 2013 Fannie Mae HARP mortgage volume. Your monthly savings may vary based on the specific terms of the loan selected, the interest rates, APR and other factors. All loans are subject to credit approval.
Purchase Power Mortgage Program:
A prequalification is our estimate of how much you could be eligible to borrow based on information you supply. A preapproval means that our underwriting department has conditionally approved you for a mortgage loan based on a review of the credit information and documentation you provided. Final loan approval is subject to conditions, such as determining the suitability of the property and verifying that your financial condition or credit worthiness has not materially changed.
The Close-on-Time Pledge applies only to conventional, conforming purchase loans. If your application is approved, ditech pledges to close your loan by the date stated in your sales contract (“Closing Date”). The Pledge is not available when the Closing Date is less than 30 days from the loan application date. If you have provided all requested documents and information but ditech cannot close your loan by the Closing Date because of something it did or did not do, then within 45 days after your request, ditech will give you $500 in prepaid gift card(s). A maximum of $500 in gift cards per loan transaction is available regardless of the number of applicants or delays. The Pledge may be withdrawn at any time at ditech’s sole discretion.

b. Identification of works or materials being infringed;

c. terminate such content provider’s, member’s or user’s access to the Services if he or she is a repeat offender.
3. Procedure to Supply a Counter-Notice to the Designated Agent
If the content provider, member or user believes that the material that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or the content provider, member or user believes that it has the right to post and use such material from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or, pursuant to the law, the content provider, member, or user has the right to send us a counter-notice containing the following information to the Designated Agent:
a. A physical or electronic signature of the content provider, member or user;
b. Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled;
c. A statement that the content provider, member or user has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material; and
d. Content provider’s, member’s or user’s name, address, telephone number, and, if available, email address, and a statement that such person or entity consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal Court for the judicial district in which the content provider’s, member’s or user’s address is located, or, if the content provider’s, member’s or user’s address is located outside the United States, for any judicial district in which Ditech is located, and that such person or entity will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.
If a counter-notice is received by the Designated Agent, Ditech may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that Ditech may replace the removed material or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user accused of committing infringement, the removed material may be replaced or access to it restored in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at Ditech’s discretion.
