This week, Fannie Mae (SVC-2013-15) and Freddie Mac (Bulletin 2013-14) announced that they are altering certain servicing incentives. Effective for all collection periods with a start date on or after August 1, 2013, the two entities are eliminating the complete Borrower Response Package and Delinquency improvement performance standard and the related incentive and compensatory fee structure. Servicers still must collect the package when required to do so by the enterprises’ respective guides. In addition, for mortgages with HAMP modification effective dates on or after April 1, 2014, the entities are increasing the servicer incentive by $500 if the modification is completed in accordance with the Guide.
