The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) recently directed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to increase loan guarantee fees (g-fee) that are charged. As a result, Carrington Mortgage Services will implement a change to our pricing structure for all Conforming Conventional (including High Balance products) loans.
Timing for implementation:
- Effective immediately, new 45 and 60 day locks will have the new increased fee built into the base pricing.
- On Sunday, September 16th , the 30 day base pricing will reflect the new fee increase.
- On Monday, October 1st, the 15 day base pricing will reflect the new fee increase.
- Any Conventional Conforming loans (Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac product) that are locked on or before September 16 that need to extend beyond Tuesday, October 16th to fund, will be subject to an additional 50 basis point price adjustment over and above normal extension costs. This applies to all relocks and all other extension scenarios.
- All other extension costs for loans locked on or after Monday, October 1st will be subject to the current extension fees as listed on the daily rate sheet.
Carrington Mortgage Services will monitor the pipeline and reserves the right to assess the correct extension fees where applicable.

Addition of Seasoned Mortgage Industry Executive to Drive Growth of Lending Business
Carrington Mortgage Services (Carrington) today announced the addition of Lynn Halstead as vice president of wholesale operations to its Mortgage Lending Division senior management team. Lynn joins Carrington to drive its wholesale lending channel.
"Lynn is exactly the kind of experienced, well-rounded executive we wanted to help grow our wholesale lending operation," noted Ray Brousseau, executive vice president, Carrington Mortgage Services. "Her experience covers virtually every aspect of the business — loan production, client services, lending operations, risk management and secondary marketing — and she excels in talent development, performance management and operational effectiveness."
Lynn brings more than 25 years of mortgage banking and real estate lending experience to Carrington. She started her career at the Household International family of companies where she managed originations and operations in the U.S. and abroad. She also managed both regional and national retail branch networks, loan servicing platforms and the wholesale correspondent lending channel. At AMRESCO Residential Mortgage as senior vice president and chief lending officer, Lynn had responsibility for wholesale and retail branch production and underwriting operations. She was also a senior vice president of national lending at Option One Mortgage, where she grew annual production to $7 billion through strategic alliances with banks and other large institutional clients.
"I am excited to join Carrington Mortgage Services, and am looking forward to working with the team to build a best-in-class origination platform," Lynn commented. "The combination of the company’s entrepreneurial culture with highly engaged leaders and talented associates, made the decision to join Carrington very attractive."

The Federal Housing Administration has eliminated their own new rule aimed at consumers with even fairly minor “collections debt.”
The new rule, which would have gone into effect July 1, required potential borrowers to settle any disputed debts totaling $1,000 or more before the FHA would consider backing their mortgage.
The rule originated as part of ML 2012-03 back in April. It was effective for just one week until it was placed on hold by the FHA until July 1 as they fielded questions and concerns. (Any loans written between April 1 – April 8 to fit the guidelines will not be deemed in violation of HUD requirements.)
Though the FHA drafted the rule in an effort to reduce risk and protect its emergency fund, they faced immediate pushback with the announcement. Controversy surrounded the topic, as homebuilders and lenders loudly voiced concern that the new rule would dramatically hurt business, especially with first-time homebuyers.
News that the FHA has rescinded its tougher credit policy rule is a new bright spot for both lenders and for those looking to the FHA for home financing. Borrowers eager to see themselves in a new home no longer need to worry about resolving or paying off disputed credit before applying for a loan, as the rule has been revoked effective immediately.
But as reported on HousingWire.com, an FHA spokesperson said they are still taking comments on the original proposal.
All other guidance in ML 2012-3, which became effective April 1, 2012, remains in effect.
See the official language in the HUD Mortgagee Letter 2012-10.
