On August 20, Fannie Mae issued Announcement SEL-2013-06 and Freddie Mac published Bulletin 2013-16, both of which update numerous selling requirements in response to the CFPB’s final Ability-to-Repay/Qualified Mortgage (ATR/QM) rule. As promised in their July 2013 notices to sellers, the issuances (i) detail new mortgage eligibility requirements (e.g., retirement of mortgages with original maturities in excess of 30 years and making mortgages with prepayment penalties ineligible for sale) (ii) revise thresholds for points and fees, (iii) revise higher-priced mortgage loans eligibility requirements, and (iv) remind sellers of other policies, including those related to the representation and warranty framework announced in September 2012. The changes take effect when the ATR/QM rule goes into effect on January 10, 2014.
