GSE Rep & Warrant Revisions Offer Buyback Alternatives

Lenders selling loans to the GSEs will get buyback relief for mortgages that go through Fannie Mae’s and Freddie Mac’s quality-control review processes, according to a new policy the companies announced this week. The new policy, issued in conjunction with the unveiling of the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s updated strategic plan and conservatorship scorecard, tinkers at the edges of the buyback safe harbor for loans with acceptable payment history.
