Guide Bulletin 2017-17 Announces Enhanced Relief Refinance Requirements

September 8, 2017

Today we’re announcing the complete requirements for our new high LTV refinance offering, Freddie Mac Enhanced Relief RefinanceSM in Single-Family Seller/Servicer Guide (Guide) Bulletin 2017-17.  

The new offering aligns with the Federal Housing Finance Agency directive and provides refinance opportunities to borrowers who do not qualify for our standard refinance programs because of high LTV ratios.

We’re also formalizing the previously announced extension of Freddie Mac Relief Refinance MortgageSM – Same Servicer and Open Access through 2018 to make sure high LTV borrowers continue to have refinance opportunities until the new offering is available.
