Understanding Fannie and Freddie Flex Modifications: A Vital Tool for Homeownership Stability

Back to Blog >

The Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Flex Modification programs, overseen by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), are designed to offer relief to homeowners grappling with financial challenges, with an aim to make mortgage payments more manageable.

Flex Modification Overview:

These programs focus on reducing mortgage payments by approximately 20% and achieving a 40% housing expense-to-income ratio. Modifications can include adjusting loan terms like interest rates and extending the loan period. Importantly, while primarily targeting loans owned by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, Flex Modifications are also applicable to certain non-enterprise loans, broadening their impact across a wider range of homeowners.

Qualifications for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Flex Modifications:

Eligibility requirements include:

– A conventional first lien mortgage loan.

– A loan that is at least 60 days delinquent or facing imminent default.

– A mortgage originated at least 12 months prior to modification evaluation.

– No more than three previous modifications.

– No failed Flex Modification Trial Period Plan within the past 12 months.

– No previous Flex Modification that became delinquent within 12 months without reinstatement.
