CHLA Writes FHFA to Seek Suspension of Increased Net Worth and Liquidity Requirements Due to Coronavirus; Also Seeks Small IMB exemption due to their lower financial & systemic risk.

CHLA today wrote the FHFA asking for a suspension of implementation of pending increased net worth and liquidity requirements for GSE servicers, arguing that it would harm access to credit for lenders and borrowers, in the middle of the coronavirus crisis. The CHLA letter also argued that smaller IMBs should be exempt from the requirements, due to their significantly lower financial and systemic risk relative to large servicers.
