CalHFA strongly encourages lenders to use the Closing Doc Wizard in MAS to draw the MyHome documents. The Closing Doc Wizard ensures the closing docs are being drawn correctly and all applicable fields are auto populated from MAS.

Note: If your lender uses a different system to draw the documents, CalHFA still encourages you to use the Closing Doc Wizard as a comparison tool to ensure accurate figures and avoid potential suspensions and/or denial during the MyHome purchase process.

Copies of CalHFA’s promissory notes & deeds of trust can be found on our Forms & Tools page.
