Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac to go after more strategic defaulters

Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac to go after more strategic defaulters

Anyone thinking of skating on mortgages owned by eitherFannie Mae or Freddie Mac may want to think again. As a result of new government reports, the two companies say they are going to do a better job of going after so-called strategic defaulters.

Fannie and Freddie can pursue judgments against borrowers who walk away from their loans even though they have the ability to make their payments. That’s called a strategic default, and many borrowers are taking that step — typically throwing in the towel because their homes are no longer worth as much as they owe.
