FHFA Set to Tackle the Eminent Domain Issue

Aug 10, 2012

The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) has sent to the Federal Register a Notice indicating its concern with the proposed use of eminent domain to restructure performing home loans and inviting public input. As conservator of the government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs)—Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and regulator of 12 Federal Home Loan Banks—the FHFA has concern about the use of eminent domain to revise existing financial contracts and the alteration of the value of the companies’ securities holdings. FHFA has determined that action may be necessary on its part to avoid a risk to safe and sound operations at its regulated entities and to avoid taxpayer expense. Additionally, FHFA has concerns that such programs could negatively affect the extension of credit to borrowers seeking to become homeowners and on investors that support the housing market. FHFA is accepting submissions from the public on or before Sept. 7, 2012. These may be sent to [email protected] or FHFA OGC, 400 Seventh Street SW, Eighth Floor, Washington, DC 20024. Submissions may be made public.
