Tuesday August 09 HAFA UPDATE – See it here first.

On Tuesday, August 9, 2011 the U.S. Department of the Treasury issued Supplemental Directive 11-08 – HAFA Policy Update, which implements many of the recommendations received during the Summit and Working Groups. 

 Specifically, Supplemental Directive 11-08 implements the following key changes:

 Requires servicers to develop and post on their website a HAFA Matrix that describes various components of a servicer’s HAFA Policy, including any unique HAFA eligibility criteria or program rules, the servicer’s process for re-evaluation of property value, and contact information for HAFA assistance.

Removes non-mortgage debt from the $6,000 subordinate lien cap. However non-mortgage lien holders still must provide lien releases and waive borrower liability.

 Requires all servicers to develop a process for periodic re-evaluation of property value and to reconcile discrepancies between the servicer’s independent assessment of value and market value data provided by the borrower or the borrower’s real estate broker.
