Frequently Asked Questions
Subject Property Address In LoanSafe Risk Manager, LoanSafe Fraud Manager and LoanSafe Collateral Manager
Sometimes, the Subject Property Address displayed on the header (top) of the report – below the Report Order No. – is different or does not completely match the Input Property Address I provided. Why does this happen?
Every Input Property Address provided is standardized using a third-party tool. The resulting Standardized Property Address is what is displayed on the header of the report and is used to search for the property.
If the third-party tool is unable to standardized the Input Property Address, the Input Property Address that was provided will be displayed on the header of the report.
NOTE: Address Standardization is the process of making an address uniform. The USPS defines a standardized address as “one that is fully spelled out, abbreviated by using the Postal Service standard abbreviations … or as shown in the current Postal Service ZIP+4 file.”
Why would the Input Property Address standardize to a different address?
A few common reasons are listed below.
- The property is a new construction.
- The property is part of a split parcel.
- There has been a street name change.
Why do I encounter the following scenarios?
The property Site Address in the Subject Property Report section is different from the following:
- The Standardized Property Address displayed on the header of the report, and/or
- The Input Property Address that I provided
Following are reasons why you would see a different property Site Address in the Subject Property Report section of LoanSafe.
- Every Input Property Address is standardized using a third-party tool. The resulting Standardized Property Address is what LoanSafe uses to search for the property.
- If an exact match to the Standardized Property Address cannot be found, LoanSafe will find a closely matching address and information for this closely matching address will be displayed.
- Most often, a closely matching address is displayed when a Unit Number is part of the Input Property Address. When the exact Unit Number cannot be found, LoanSafe uses logic to return the next best Unit Number, which results in a different Unit Number from the one provided.
- When a closely matching address is found, LoanSafe will generate an alert indicating that the Input Address was not found and a closely matching address was returned instead.

Here are some steps you can take:
