sorry folks it's just another "feel Better" bill we already have plenty of them!!!How about we all get together on the same page & demand ENFORCEMENT of what we already have?? We can see now why there is NO enforcement because City, County, State & Federal elected officials have been getting "DEALS" Lets work on getting John Q Public on our side.

We going down the same road we had before, only diffence is FHA is going to be the Sub Prime lender. & folks that IS yours & my money!!

Nothing has changed just going to be worded differently. Per HUD in California today 6/16/08 at 1 PM AZ time. No need to have a executed contract. Now revert back to the FHA seminar a few weeks ago in Phoenix AZ. Appraiser MUST analayze the contract. Seems we been down this road before.

If it passed, it is going to be a law and no body can go around it. Senator Casey seems to be a very good person and I hope appraisers from Pennsylvania send him encouragement emails. This is stronger than HVCC because it is going to be a law not an agreement between NY AG and GSEs.

Reform is needed and at least this is an attempt that will not force those of us who do mostly lender work to lose their client base to the AMCs. Enforcement, as always, will be the sticky part, but I do not see anything that is nearly as anti-competitive as the HVCC. The fact that bills like this are even being suggested appears to be a baby step in the right direction. It will be interesting to see who the biggest opponents wil be.

Karl,
I am for enforecement too but there has to be a law to be enforced. If there was a law requiring interior inspections for all mortgage appraisals , FNMAE wouldn't dare to create drive by forms for lenders to use. This crazy drive by appraisal was the way of going around a real appraisal which was created by Fnnea and approval of TAF.

Sometimes after hearing John Lennon's "Imagine" I think that I would have liked to have written it.

I think the same thing about this bill. Simple, with teeth, and no new agency to enforce it.

It basically says "use a real person who actually sees the interior of the property, pay them promptly, leave them alone to do their job, don't even attempt to influence the value, or pay a big fine".

No more dialing for dollars. I would have also gotten rid of comp checks, but this would probably kill them anyway.

With FNMA, FHMC, and FHA being the only ones left to provide liquidity to the housing market I think they owe it to the taxpayers who will be left holding the bag, as usual.
