Freddie Mac Makes Changes to Short Sale Policies

Freddie Mac Homes for SaleChanges to Freddie Mac Short Sale RequirementsIn an effort to reduce short sale fraud, Freddie Mac will require parties involved in a short sale to sign affidavits that will make them liable for any negligent or intentional misrepresentations in the transaction. The new requirement will official take effect on January 1, 2012.

“With this change, you will have more information to identify potential mortgage fraud and a clearer understanding of the intent of all parties involved in the real estate transaction,” Freddie said in a statement announcing the rule changes to mortgage servicers last Friday.

Freddie  Mac is also eliminating a previous requirement that required borrowers who are more than 120 days delinquent to list their home for sale before becoming eligible for a deed-in-lieu.

The new rules also include efforts to help mortgage servicers speed up the loss-mitigation process.
