Commitment Delivery Variance

Best Efforts Commitments

Best Efforts commitments offer a delivery variance of the lesser of plus or minus (±) ten percent (10%) or plus or minus (±) thirty-five thousand dollars ($35,000) of the original Mortgage Loan amount.

A Mortgage Loan amount change to a Mortgage Loan in a Best Efforts commitment that results in a net Mortgage Loan amount that breaches the allowed delivery variance will subject the commitment to reprice based on the following conditions and calculations:

Under-Delivery, Improving Market

Existing Final Price - [((Current Rate Sheet Date/Time Final Price – Existing Final Price) * (Commitment Amount - Delivery Variance Amount - New Loan Amount)) / New Loan Amount]

Under-Delivery, Declining Market

Existing Base Price applies to reduced Mortgage Loan amount.

Over-Delivery, Improving Market

Existing Base Price applies to existing and additional Mortgage Loan amount.

Over-Delivery, Declining Market

Existing Final Price + [((Current Rate Sheet Date/Time Final Price – Existing Final Price) * (New Loan Amount - Commitment Amount - Delivery Variance Amount)) / New Loan Amount]

PennyMac actively monitors Mortgage Loan amount changes to Best Efforts commitments. If PennyMac determines a correspondent excessively updates Mortgage Loan amounts, PennyMac may modify price based on a more punitive calculation. For example, if a correspondent delivers over the variance in a declining market, PennyMac may apply a worse-of price calculation to the entire Mortgage Loan amount, rather than just the overage.

Note: PennyMac resets the commitment delivery variance at relock.

Bulk, AOT and DT Commitments

Bulk, AOT and DT commitments offer a delivery variance of the lesser of plus or minus (±) two percent (2%) of the original commitment amount (prior to over-delivery), or one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000).

Mandatory delivery commitments with delivery stipulations offer a delivery variance of the lesser of plus or minus (±) one basis point (.01%) of the original commitment amount, or one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000).

Aggregate Mortgage Loan amount changes to Mortgage Loan(s) in a Bulk, AOT or DT commitment that result in a net Mortgage Loan amount that breaches the allowed delivery variance will subject the commitment to reprice based on the following conditions and calculations:

Under-Delivery Breach

An under-delivery results when the principal balance of Mortgage Loans delivered into a commitment is less than the commitment amount minus the applicable delivery variance amount, noted by the following expression when the result is a positive number:

Under-Delivery Amount = [Commitment Amount + Previously Agreed Upon Over-Delivery Amount – Delivery Variance Amount – Delivered Amount – Previous Pair-off Amount]

Failure to deliver within tolerance may result in a pair-off fee or require substitution. Please refer to Commitment Cancellation and Pair-Off and Mortgage Loan Rejection, Post Delivery Cancellation and Substitution.

Over-Delivery Breach

An over-delivery results when the principal balance of the Mortgage Loan(s) delivered into a commitment exceeds the commitment amount plus the applicable delivery variance amount, noted by the following expression when the result is a positive number:

Over-Delivery Amount = [Delivered Amount + Previous Pair-off Amount – Commitment Amount – Previous Over-Delivery Amount – Delivery Variance Amount]

Note: The delivery variance amount does not change when an over-delivery occurs.
