FHFA decreases commingled securities charge after protest

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will decrease the in advance charge for commingled securities to 9.375 basis points beginning April 1, the Federal Housing Finance Agency stated today. The company presented the charge in 2015 at 50 basis points, stimulating criticism from market groups that stated it threatened to compromise the Uniform Mortgage-Backed Security market. FHFA stated the choice to decrease the charge followed thinking about “a variety of views on the fee and its potential impacts.”

In a different declaration, FHFA revealed more modifications to both GSEs’ single-family prices structure by presenting revamped and recalibrated in advance charge matrices for purchase, rate-term re-finance and cash-out re-finance loans. The upgraded costs will work for shipments and acquisitions starting May 1.
