You can start using a new Refinance Test (2018Q2)for all new loans, except for Small Balance Loans, on August 6, 2018, with a grace period up to August 20, 2018.
Changes to the test include market and interest rate data modifications. In this updated test, the rates multiplier, which keeps the implied 10-year forward rate in the test at 4.67 percent, more accurately represent refinance risk. Combined with broader market changes, the updated test is more restrictive than the previous test.
