Adam Levitin: It’s My Fault You Can’t Get a Mortgage

Credit Slips-

Can’t get a mortgage? Turns out it’s my fault. As in mine, personally. Yup. That’s the claim in a Housing Wire written by right-wing banking analyst R. Christopher Whalen. Here is Whalen’s argument in a nutshell:

Servicing regulations make banks really reluctant to deal with anyone but very good credit borrowers because it takes so long to foreclose on anyone anymore. Servicing regulations are so onerous because of an article Tara Twomey and I wrote on mortgage servicing that said that servicers were doing bad things. The problem (in Whalen’s view) is that Tara and I had it totally wrong.

I’m flattered that Whalen credits the article with having inspired all of the subsequent foreclosure regulation, but it would be nice if Whalen would accurately characterize the article. (Has he even read it?) It would also be nice if Whalen would acknowledge that servicers have done an awful lot of bad things over the past several years, which might just possibily have something to do with the current regulatory enviornment for servicing. But such an admission that might get in the way of Whalen grinding his political axe (two legs good, regulation ba-a-a-d).
