GSEs: Ability-to-Repay and Qualified Mortgages

Yesterday, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) announced that it is directing Fannie Mae ("Fannie") and Freddie Mac ("Freddie") to limit their future mortgage acquisitions to loans that meet the requirements for a qualified mortgage ("qualified mortgage" or "QM"), including those that meet the special or temporary qualified mortgage definition, and loans that are exempt from the “ability to repay” ("ATR") requirements under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank).

In January, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) issued a final rule implementing the “ability to repay” provisions of Dodd-Frank, including certain protections from liability for loans that meet the criteria of a qualified mortgage as outlined in the rule.

I would like to call your attention to a few important details.
