On April 14, 2016, the Federal Housing Finance Agency announced additional enhancements to its requirements for sales of non-performing loans by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that build on the requirements originally announced in March 2015. The additional requirements, which apply to this Fannie Mae non-performing loan sale, encourage sustainable modifications that have the potential to provide more borrowers the opportunity for home retention by requiring evaluation of underwater borrowers for modifications that may include principal and/or arrearage forgiveness; forbidding "walking away" from vacant homes; and establishing more specific proprietary loan modification standards.
