Antonakes Rips Mortgage Servicers For Not Making More Progress

CFPB Deputy Director Steven Antonakes was harshly critical of the mortgage servicing industry and put servicers on notice they'll likely have a higher bar when it comes to making a good-faith effort than perhaps they were anticipating. Speaking last month at the Mortgage Bankers Association's mortgage servicing conference, Antonakes noted that back in 2006, when he worked as the Massachusetts Commissioner of Banks, he collaborated with the industry, urging servicers to increase the pace of loan modifications and engage in best practices.

HUD has announced a 25 basis point cut in FHA premiums, which is slated to take effect in late January. Is your lending shop for or against a cut in FHA premiums?

For. It should help lending volumes.
Against. The private MI sector should take on this risk, not the government.
Too early to say.
I believe the new White House may scuttle the idea so it doesn’t matter.
