In light of the housing and mortgage problems, the Federal Reserve has adopted rules to protect homebuyers from the kind of loans that drove many into foreclosure.

These new guide lines will make it more difficult for some to obtain financing but it is a step in the right direction.

Fed Issues New Lending Rules

The Federal Reserve on Monday adopted rules designed to protect homebuyers from the kind of loans that drove many into foreclosure.

The new rules apply to all lenders and not just to banks supervised by the Fed. Most are expected to take effect Oct.1, 2009. Escrow requirements won’t go into effect until April 1, 2010.

Here are the new requirements:

  • Prevent loans made without documenting borrower’s income.
  • Require lenders to escrow money to pay taxes and insurance for risky borrowers.
  • Limit and in some cases ban prepayment penalties.
  • Prohibit lenders from making a loan without considering a borrower's ability to repay a home loan from sources other than the home's value.
  • Insist lenders credit a mortgage payment to a home owner’s account on the day it is received.
  • Brokers and others are forbidden from "coercing or encouraging" an appraiser to misrepresent the value of a home.
