FederalHousing Finance Agency Establishes Additional Anti-Fraud Measure for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Federal Home Loan Banks

Washington,DC – June 19, 2012 – (RealEstateRama) — The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) has announced an initiative to complement current fraud reporting by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the Federal Home Loan Banks. FHFA is taking this additional step to ensure the regulated entities are not exposed to unnecessary risk from doing business with individuals or businesses with a demonstrated history of fraudulent conduct.

The initiative, called the Suspended Counterparty Program, will require Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Federal Home Loan Banks to notify FHFA whenever an individual or company with whom they do business is adjudicated to have engaged in fraud or other financial misconduct. Likewise, FHFA will consider information received from other government sources.

FHFA will determine whether an individual or company should be suspended from doing business with Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac or the Federal Home Loan Banks as a threat to their safe and sound operations. Affected parties will have an opportunity to show cause why they should not be suspended. In appropriate cases, FHFA will issue orders directing the regulated entities to stop doing business with the individual or company based on a history of fraud. This program becomes effective Aug. 15, 2012.

FHFA

The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) was created on July 30, 2008, when the President signed into law the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008.  The Act created a world-class, empowered regulator with all of the authorities necessary to oversee vital components of our country’s secondary mortgage markets – Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the Federal Home Loan Banks.  In addition, this law combined the staffs of the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (OFHEO), the Federal Housing Finance Board (FHFB), and the GSE mission office at the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
