Groups Seek More Transparency From Mortgage Database Project

Industry trade groups are calling on the Federal Housing Finance Agency and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to be more transparent about how they plan to use the information the agencies want to collect to build the National Mortgage Database. Earlier this year, the FHFA announced it will begin to collect additional, more specific and personal information on borrowers and loans as part of the National Mortgage Database project the agency launched with the CFPB in 2012. An FHFA announcement in the Federal Register noted that under a “revised system of records,” the database will begin collecting demographic and personal contact info for borrowers and their households, as well as loan-level data on mortgage performance.

After the November elections, how long will it take for a new Congress and White House to pass GSE reform legislation?

I’m confident a bill will be passed the first year.


2 to 3 years. GSE reform is complicated.


Sadly it won’t happen in a Clinton or Trump first term.


Not in my lifetime.
