Aging Housing Stock Increases Demand for VA Alteration Loans

Lenders will now be able make VA loans to veterans who wish to purchase or refinance a home that needs alteration or repair, under new guidance issued by the VA. According to the VA, it has received inquiries from lenders that have expressed interest in originating and processing loans to finance home alteration and repair. The agency noted that the aging housing stock in the U.S. has spurred an increased demand for such loans. Due to their physical condition, older homes are often sold as “cash or conventional financing,” which immediately excludes VA financing and deprives veterans the opportunity to use their VA benefit. The new policy guidance makes the VA guaranty available to lenders looking to finance home alteration, repair, renovation and improvement. It also allows improvements to be included in the value and completed after the loan is closed. The lender disburses the loan proceeds to the ...

House Bill Introduced to Ensure Compliance with Loss-Mit Rules

Legislation was introduced this week in the House Financial Services Committee that would strengthen oversight of FHA mortgage servicers to ensure their compliance with the agency’s loss-mitigation requirements. The FHA Foreclosure Prevention Act of 2018 (H.R. 5555) would require the Department of Housing and Urban Development to conduct servicer oversight, including sampling, compliance reviews, and direct information collection from borrowers whose files were sampled. “A decade after the devastating foreclosure crisis, we continue to see significant problems with the servicing of FHA loans that unnecessarily put homeowners at risk of foreclosure,” said Rep. Maxine Waters, D-CA, ranking member on the committee and sponsor of the bill. Waters said her bill would ensure that FHA servicers help families experiencing financial hardships avoid foreclosure so that they can ...

Ginnie Mae Mulls ‘A-Tier’ Issuer Rating to Raise Nonbank Liquidity

Ginnie Mae is considering a tiered rating system to ensure that all participants in its mortgage securities program have sufficient liquidity and capital to meet their counterparty obligations. The agency is still fleshing out the idea of an “A-tier” issuer, which would likely develop into a policy in the near future, said Michael Bright, executive vice president and chief operating officer, during a recent interview with Inside FHA/VA Lending. “An A-tier issuer would be [a company that] has gone above and beyond in helping put together for us a risk management and liquidity plan that does not rely on liquidity providers, and whose defect and cure rates are low,” he explained. Such issuer/servicers also would be well capitalized. Ginnie is developing the metrics for such a system, as well as incentives for the A-tier issuers, Bright said He added that top-rated firms would be eligible for “concierge services” from the ...

VA Announces Effort to Convert VALERI to Fully Operational AUS

A general overhaul of the Department of Veterans Affairs’ Loan Electronic Reporting Interface is underway to convert it into a full service, end-to-end system capable of handling every phase of the loan process. Work on VALERI began in 2017, with the aim of integrating all business lines – loan origination, property valuations, and mortgage servicing – into what VA officials view as an automated underwriting system. “We are potentially looking at the redesigned VALERI as an automated underwriting system, an end-to-end system designed to better serve veterans and their families, lenders, servicers and appraisers,” said Jeff London, director of the VA Loan Guaranty Service (LGS), during an interview at the recent VA lender conference in Miami. The VALERI application has been used solely for servicing for the last 10 years. Since 2008, on a monthly basis, servicers have been uploading electronic data ...

VA’s Loan Guaranty Chief Says Anti-Churning Rule Under Review

The Department of Veterans Affairs has drafted a proposed rule to curb predatory loan churning. The draft rule is “well on its way through concurrence with VA and the Office of Management and Budget,” said Jeff London, director of the VA Loan Guaranty Service, during an interview at the agency’s 19t Annual Lender Conference in Miami recently. He did not specify a publication date but said the proposed rule will be published “fairly soon.” Churning, or serial refinancing, involves multiple refinances of the same loan within short periods with no clear benefit to the borrower. In addition, churning triggers rapid prepayments in Ginnie Mae mortgage-backed securities to the detriment of investors and makes it difficult to price MBS appropriately. London declined to provide details about the rule’s content but said veterans and taxpayers would be protected. VA looked at a range of things that were common in the ...

VA Share in Gov’t-Backed Servicing Continued to Grow in Early 2018

The Department of Veterans Affairs home-loan guaranty program continued to account for most of the growth in the Ginnie Mae servicing business during the first quarter of 2018, a new Inside FHA/VA Lending analysis reveals. Total Ginnie mortgage-backed securities outstanding rose to $1.940 trillion as of the end of March, including multifamily MBS and securities backed by FHA reverse mortgages. Some $1.795 trillion of that amount was traditional single-family mortgages, a 1.1 percent increase from the end of last year. The forward-mortgage Ginnie market grew by 7.3 percent over the past 12 months. The amount of VA loans in Ginnie pools was up 13.1 percent from March 2017, nearing the $600.0 billion mark. By comparison, the FHA segment of the Ginnie market was up 4.7 percent from a year ago, hitting $1.085 trillion. Loan performance generally improved in both the ... [Charts]

USDA Revises Eligibility Maps for Rural Housing Service Programs

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has announced proposed changes to the maps the Rural Housing Service uses to determine whether certain areas are eligible for its single-family and multifamily housing programs. RHS reviews the areas it covers every five years to determine which ones would be eligible for USDA home-loan guarantees. The proposed maps are based on RHS’s 2017-2018 review of data collected from the U.S. Bureau of Census 2015 American Community Survey. The ACS provides information about changes in the U.S. population, housing and workforce. The current RHS maps are based on RHS’s 2012-2013 review of the 2010 U.S. Census. The proposed maps will become effective on June 4, 2018. Properties located in areas that have been reclassified from rural to non-rural on the maps’ effective date may qualify for RHS’ housing programs if they meet certain conditions. First, the ...

HUD’s Pre-Foreclosure Rule Could Create Challenges for Servicers

A Department of Housing and Urban Development requirement for a face-to-face meeting has become quite a compliance challenge for lenders seeking mortgage foreclosure, according to legal experts. In Dan-Harry v. PNC Bank, a federal court in Rhode Island concluded that a borrower may bring a claim for damages and other remedies against a lender for failure to conduct a pre-foreclosure face-to-face meeting with the borrower – a requirement for breach of an FHA-insured mortgage. In an analysis of the court’s ruling, attorneys at the Chicago law firm Hinshaw & Culbertson said the decision is significant because the HUD regulation provides no private right of action. In addition, Rhode Island law does not recognize a cause of action for breach of good faith and reasonable diligence in foreclosure, they noted. Nevertheless, the legal experts pointed out that Rhode Island federal courts effectively ...

FHA Insured $1.9 Billion in Loans To Borrowers Barred by Fed Rules

FHA insured approximately $1.9 billion of ineligible mortgage loans made to borrowers with delinquent federal debts or who are subject to federal administrative offset for past-due child support payments, according to the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s inspector general. Approximately 9,500 loans were ineligible because the sources used by lenders to identify ineligible borrowers lacked sufficient information to raise red flags. In addition, FHA failed to guide lenders adequately in reviewing child support payments, the IG said. Federal law prohibits loans, loan guarantees or insurance to delinquent federal debtors, including those with delinquent child support subject to administrative offset, until the delinquency is resolved. Auditors drew a statistical sample of 60 loans from 13,927 FHA-insured loans that closed in 2016 and analyzed data on their related borrowers in the ...

FHA streamline refinancing fell significantly in 2017 from the previous year, according to an Inside FHA/VA Lending analysis of agency data. Lenders closed 2017 with $37.4 billion of FHA streamline refi loans, buoyed by a 12.2 percent increase in origination in the fourth quarter. However, business was down a whopping 34.5 percent year-over-year. The segment ended the first quarter strongly with, $13.05 billion, but faltered over the next nine months. Streamline refinancing accounted for 15.8 percent of total FHA originations in 2017. Twelve states, led by California, each reported FHA streamline refi originations in excess of $1 billion last year.

In an interview with Inside FHA/VA Lending this week, Michael Bright, executive vice president and chief operating officer at Ginnie Mae, said the market and investors have responded positively to the agency’s efforts to resolve the churning and prepayment problems. “The Ginnie spread has fallen almost half a point and our securities have become more liquid,” he said. “We want to make sure we’re giving investors CPRs (constant prepayment rates) that they can model.” Bright said he cares less about the overall level of prepayment speeds.

Issuers Punished for Churning, Barred from Multi-Issuer Pools

Ginnie Mae this week meted penalties to two of the nine issuers that received warnings from the agency for excessive refinancings of VA mortgages. Bloomberg reported that Ginnie barred NewDay Financial’s and Nations Lending’s from the more lucrative multi-issuer mortgage-backed securities pools, forcing them to issue custom pools. The restrictions became effective immediately. The agency’s action could reduce mortgage interest rates by 50 basis points for FHA and VA loans, which would benefit first-time homebuyers, said Jaret Seiberg, an analyst with Cowen Washington Research Group. On the other hand, the issuers Ginnie limited to issuing custom pools will end up making loans with higher rates, the analyst noted. Ginnie’s action is part of a joint effort with the Department of Veterans Affairs to crack down on loan churning and faster prepayments of VA loans pooled in Ginnie securities. Loan churning ...

Ginnie MBS Production Tumbled To Three-Year Low in Early 2018

Issuance of new single-family Ginnie Mae mortgage-backed securities fell sharply in the first quarter of 2018, according to a new Inside FHA/VA Lending ranking and analysis. The agency issued $92.58 billion in MBS backed by forward mortgages during the first three months of 2018. That was down 14.8 percent from the previous three-month period and represented the lowest quarterly total since early 2015. The 1Q figure is based on truncated loan amounts reported in Ginnie’s loan-level MBS disclosures. Reports with unrounded single-family loan amounts show a total of $95.75 billion in first-quarter MBS issuance, including FHA reverse mortgages. The loan-level data reveal that production fell 6.9 percent from February to March, when just $28.21 billion of Ginnie single-family securities were issued. That was the lowest monthly volume since February 2015. Both the FHA and VA programs saw significant ... [Charts]
