you might want to know that some of these lender/servicer break-in cases that have been reported over the last two years involved homeowners who were current on their mortgages.
If you happen to see a contractor walking around your house, taking pictures, don’t panic. It’s just your lender “inspecting” your property.
According to new rules announced by Fannie Mae this week, mortgage servicers will be required to “order” a “property inspection” no later than 45 days after a homeowner misses a mortgage payment. “The servicer must continue to obtain property inspections every 30 days thereafter” until the delinquency is resolved.
