  • The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) assumed management authority for the Federal Home Loan conservatorship that was enacted in September 2008. Fannie and Freddie are Government Sponsored Agencies and during the economic downturn, they reported losses in the tens of billions of dollars. The FHFA took over Fannie and Freddie and have made policy decisions to foreclose on homeowners beyond 12 months past due. This flies in the face of the efforts Housing and Urban Development has put forth to help homeowners keep their homes. The FHFA policy is driving banks to foreclose on homeowners while in the process of modifying their mortgages., Author, Banks are Not the Only Force Behind Wrongful Foreclosures - So is Uncle Sam, Real Estate, 2012
