MH RFI Extended, Industry Said DTS Shouldn’t be Optional

The Federal Housing Finance Agency this week extended the deadline for public input on a potential chattel-loan pilot to support manufactured housing. The reactions so far to the manufactured home portion of the final duty-to-serve rule, which included a request for input on chattel lending, have been mixed. In December, the FHFA gave the green light for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to begin pilot programs for the loans. Since then, the agency issued the RFI and extended the original deadline of Feb. 17 to March 21, 2017. The FHFA also hosted several listening sessions on the topic to get input. During the first session in Chicago, one organization called the FHFA’s DTS rule on manufactured home lending “intolerable.”
