House Appropriators Reject Administration’s Proposed FHA Lender Fee. A $135 Million Set Aside for IT Upgrades

The House Appropriations Committee this week approved a fiscal year 2018 funding bill for the Department of Housing and Urban Development with a $135 million allocation for systems enhancements, quality control and risk management improvements in lieu of a proposed lender fee. Approved by a vote of 31 to 20, the bill provides HUD with $38.3 billion in discretionary funding for FY 2018, down $487 million from the current level. The House measure authorizes...

Industry Seeks More Tangible Activities in GSE DTS Proposals

Industry groups lauded the GSEs’ efforts to increase funding for underserved markets but recommend they add more specific activities focused on increasing loan purchases and speeding up the process. In May, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac released draft proposals on ways to grow financing for specific underserved markets under the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s duty-to-serve requirements. Those markets include manufactured housing, rural housing and preserving affordable housing for low- and moderate-income households. The National Low Income Housing Coalition said while the plans demonstrate the GSEs’ commitment to increase their impact in underserved markets, they focus largely on scoring and technical compliance.

Fed Governor Wants GSE Reform Progress Now Before it’s Too Late

With GSE reform moving up the priority list in the minds of lawmakers and industry executives, Federal Reserve Governor Jay Powell joined the conversation last week and said it’s time to act now before it’s too late. Following the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee hearing on GSE reform, Powell spoke at the American Enterprise Institute and urged lawmakers to come up with a solution while the economy is healthy. He worries that if reform doesn’t happen soon, the status quo will become comfortable. Moreover, Powell said any change would be more challenging to enact during difficult economic times.

Small Lenders Clamor for a Voice In Housing-Finance Reform Debate

As talks intensify on how to get Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac out of limbo, smaller lenders are clamoring to make sure they have a say in how housing-finance reform plays out. Nearly all sides agree that small lenders should continue to have access to the secondary market; how that’s accomplished is a different matter. The Main Street GSE Reform Coalition – an umbrella group made up of small-lender and community-advocacy groups – wants the government-sponsored enterprises to begin rebuilding capital buffers by suspending their dividend payments to the Treasury Department. It also wants...

MBS Trading Volume Increased in June, But Concerns Remain About Supply and What the Fed Might Do

The average daily trading volume of agency MBS reached $209.9 billion in June, the second highest reading of the year and a sign that liquidity is picking up, according to figures compiled by the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association. The increase in trading comes despite the fact that Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Ginnie Mae issued a total of $317.7 billion of new MBS in the second quarter, a 6.1 percent decline from the first quarter. For the six-month period, 2017 holds the edge with volume up 3.5 percent. But it hasn’t been...

Yellen Affirms Fed Balance Sheet Reduction to Start This Year, Analysts Try to Anticipate Market Impact

The Federal Reserve’s Open Market Committee is moving closer to beginning what is likely to be a long and drawn-out process to gradually and predictably unwind the U.S. central bank’s huge portfolio of agency MBS and debt – the sooner, the better, according to Fed chief Janet Yellen. “The FOMC intends to gradually reduce the Federal Reserve’s securities holdings by decreasing its reinvestment of the principal payments it receives from the securities held in the System Open Market Account,” she said this week in her semi-annual Humphrey-Hawkins testimony on monetary policy to members of Congress. “Specifically, such payments will be reinvested...

Penny Raises Funding Capacity by Altering Repo Pact Terms with CS

PennyMac has revised master mortgage repurchase agreements with Credit Suisse to increase its funding capacity for new loan originations and acquisition of mortgage servicing rights, the company disclosed in a recent filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The increase is temporary – effective from June 23 through Sept. 29 – but it will boost PennyMac’s funding capacity by $486 million. On June 23, 2017, PennyMac agreed to revised terms of its Third Amended and Restated Master Purchase Agreement (CS Repurchase Amendment), which would increase temporarily its maximum committed purchase price to $943 million from $700 million. Entered into on April 28, 2017, the amended repurchase agreement would allow PennyMac to sell to Credit Suisse and later repurchase certain newly originated residential and small-balance multifamily mortgages. The agreement also includes ...

Senator Sees Consensus on Government Guarantee

Efforts in the Senate to reform the government-sponsored enterprises appear likely to include a government guarantee for whatever replaces the current system involving Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. “It seems to me that the consolidation is coming around the fact that we do need to have an explicit [catastrophic] guarantee,” said Sen. Bob Corker, R-TN. “We need to acknowledge that it’s going to be there.” He made the statement last week at a hearing on housing-finance reform by the ...

Affordability Still a Key Issue in Housing-Finance Reform As Senate Banking Panel Weighs Legislative Options

Progressive Democrats helped derail housing-finance reform legislation in the last Congress because they thought affordable housing provisions weren’t rigorous enough. It’s clear that issue will be key in the renewed reform effort taking shape in the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee, along with another matter that was mostly overlooked in 2014: mortgage servicing. Late in the panel’s hearing on reform last week, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-MA, made clear that affordable housing will be an issue. “There’s an affordable housing crisis in this country pushing homeownership below 64 percent,” she said, adding that it’s also put a strain on rental units. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-OH, the ranking minority member of the panel, said...

Will Rep. Hensarling Go Along With Evolving Housing-Finance Reform Effort in the Senate?

Late last month the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee showed a new willingness to tackle housing-finance reform legislation and the fate of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, but the wild card remains how its bipartisan solution will go over in the House. Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-TX, the chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, is no friend of the two government-sponsored enterprises and has leaned toward minimizing the government’s role in the market. Based on his past legislative efforts regarding GSE reform, the conservative from Texas would love...

New Legislation Would Exempt More Small Lenders From HMDA

Legislation is afoot in both the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate that would significantly expand the scope of lenders exempt from the record keeping and reporting requirements under the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act. In late June, Rep. Tom Emmer, R-MN, introduced H.R. 2954, which would amend HMDA to expand the exemption thresholds that determine which depository institutions are subject to the act’s record maintenance and disclosure requirements. However, the triggers are based on the number of loans originated, not the asset size of the institution. Specifically, the bill would exempt depository institutions that originated fewer than 1,000 closed-end mortgages in each of the two preceding calendar years, and depositories that originated fewer than 2,000 open-end lines of credit ...

New Bill Would Let Some Captive Insurers Remain in FHLBanks

Reps. Randy Hultgren, R-IL, and Gwen Moore, D-WI, introduced a bill in favor of captive insurers maintaining their Federal Home Loan Bank membership. Captive insurance lenders that joined the system prior to January 2016 currently have five years to terminate their FHLBank membership. Those that came into the system after that date have one year to exit the system. H.R. 289, the Housing Opportunity Mortgage Expansion (HOME) Act, would allow the five-year captives to maintain their membership, as long as they can demonstrate a commitment to residential mortgage activities. The bill’s sponsors explained that the legislation supports the notion that companies with a history and mission of supporting residential housing should be able to continue to serve their communities.

Support for Reforming Fannie, Freddie Evident at Senate Hearing

During a Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee hearing late this week housing finance reform options, there appeared to be a consensus about preserving the parts of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that work and providing better access to credit for small lenders. There was also more confidence that GSE reform could be addressed sooner rather than later. Committee Chairman Mike Crapo, R-ID, said the committee is “actively exploring a number of options.” He said recapitalizing and releasing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac without significant reform is not a solution and added that it’s important to have affordable access to the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage.

Policymakers Fault Fed’s QE Efforts, Mull Over Best Ways to Shrink Its Huge Portfolio Holdings

The Federal Reserve took some pointed criticism on Capitol Hill this week over its handling of monetary policy since the end of the Great Recession, including its support of the housing and mortgage markets through its unprecedented quantitative easing programs. “I don’t think the added gross domestic product growth we’ve had over the last 90 months will be proven to have been worth ballooning the balance sheet from $900 billion to $4.5 trillion,” Rep.

Flood Insurance Bills Advance in House, Other Mortgage Reforms Introduced

The U.S. House of Representatives was a relatively busy place last week, with a handful of measures related to flood insurance passing the House Financial Services Committee, and a few other, small-scale, individual mortgage reforms being introduced. Among the bills passed by the committee was H.R. 2875, the “National Flood Insurance Program Administrative Reform Act of 2017,” introduced by Rep. Nydia Velazquez, D-NY.

The Mortgage Bankers Association recently submitted a brief to the Supreme Court of the United States in a pending case regarding class-action waivers and arbitration clauses in employment agreements.

Is It Too Late to Delay New HMDA Requirements? Industry May Only Have Weeks to Make its Case

The month of July may very well be do-or-die time for policymakers to decide whether they should delay implementation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s new reporting requirements under the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act. “Regulators, and particularly members of Congress, don’t understand that if you’re going to delay the rule based on the technology implications of it, you really have to make a decision fairly far out before the rule becomes effective,” said Richard Andreano, a partner with the Ballard Spahr law firm in Washington, DC.

Should CFPB Delay New HMDA Requirements? Experts are Torn

Industry compliance officers, trade group representatives and legal experts at the American Bankers Association’s regulatory compliance conference, held in Orlando last week, expressed mixed sentiments about whether the CFPB ought to delay the effective date of the new requirements it is ushering in under the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act. They were responding to the suggestion of such a delay made by the Treasury Department in its recent report as per President Trump’s Executive Order 13772. “Obviously, a delay has to be for at least a year because the nature of HMDA is such that you can’t delay for six months,” Rodrigo Alba, the ABA’s senior vice president and senior regulatory counsel for mortgage finance, told an audience during a working ...

Treasury Report Blames CFPB Rules for Tight Mortgage Credit

The Treasury Department’s report on reforming financial regulation in the U.S. blames rules ushered in under the Dodd-Frank Act – and promulgated by the CFPB – for tight credit conditions in the mortgage market. “While Dodd-Frank and the ATR/QM [ability to repay/qualified mortgage] rule were not intended to eliminate markets for loans that did not meet the QM standards, the reality is that the vast majority of lenders remain unwilling to make loans that do not meet those standards, eliminating access to mortgages for many creditworthy borrowers,” Treasury wrote in the 142-page report. (At best, $3 billion to $4 billion in nonprime/non-QM mortgages might be originated this year out of total industrywide originations of $1.5 trillion.) The administration took aim at Appendix ...

The Trump Treasury Report: Treasury Takes Aim at the CFPB, Calls for Structural Changes

In a new report mandated by the Trump administration, per Executive Order 13772, the Treasury Department slammed the CFPB on multiple counts and called for an overhaul on how the bureau is managed. The Treasury’s perspective was summed up succinctly: “The CFPB was created to pursue an important mission, but its unaccountable structure and unduly broad regulatory powers have led to regulatory abuses and excesses. The CFPB’s approach to enforcement and rulemaking has hindered consumer choice and access to credit, limited innovation, and imposed undue compliance burdens, particularly on small institutions.” The report then detailed a number of more specific criticisms, as follows. “The bureau’s structure renders it unaccountable to the American people,” it began. Also, the CFPB’s substantive authority ...

Conforming-Jumbo Market Down Slightly in Early 2017 As Agencies See First Loan-Limit Increase in Years

Jumbo mortgage production declined 32.9 percent during the first quarter of 2017, along with virtually every other part of the home-loan market, according to a new Inside Mortgage Finance ranking and analysis. An estimated $70.0 billion of non-agency jumbo mortgages were originated during the first quarter, a 30.0 percent decline from the previous three-month period. In addition, some $29.0 billion of conforming-jumbo mortgages were delivered into Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Ginnie Mae mortgage-backed securities in the first three months of the year. These are loans on one-unit properties that exceed the baseline agency loan limits and are eligible because they’re secured by homes in designated high-cost markets.
