When it comes to expanded construction lending support, Ellie Mae developed a way to process construction-only and construction-to-permanent loans within Encompass, including a construction management tool, blended and separate Know Before You Owe disclosures, federal and state compliance reviews and closing documents.

And for the GSEs, Ellie Mae said Encompass will now offer support for Fannie Mae’s HomeReady offering, designed to meet the diverse needs of today’s buyers with the enhanced affordable lending product.

The update also includes a new integration with Freddie Mac Loan Closing Advisor, Freddie Mac’s solution for the Uniform Closing Disclosure delivery mandate.
