New Risk Retention Rules Could Affect Boca Raton Borrowers
The FDIC, the Federal Reserve and several other federal regulatory agencies have proposed a new credit risk retention rule that would waive the 5% risk retention rule under Section 941 of the Dodd Frank law on qualified mortgages by requiring the borrowers to make a 20% down payment. Under the new rule, when making a non-qualified loan, lenders must retain a 5% ownership when the mortgages are packaged and sold to investors.

Before you buy a home in Boca Raton Florida, you should obtain a copy of your credit report and review it for mistakes.
