Fannie Modifies Post Short Sale Qualifications

August 15, 2014

On July 29, 2014, Fannie Mae announced changes to its waiting period policy following a preforeclosure sale (short sale) or deed-in-lieu of foreclosure (DIL). The current requirements that apply to waiting periods following a short sale or DIL provide for different waiting periods of 2 years or 4 years and set out different maximum loan-to-value ratios (LTV) for those timeframes. These requirements are being updated to remove the LTV restrictions tied to different waiting periods, and establish a standard 4 year waiting period, with a 2 year waiting period permitted if a borrower has extenuating circumstances.
