Mortgage Loan Performance Improves Again
Fewer home loans were past-due during the fourth quarter, and the improvement hit most states. It was the second consecutive decline in the rate of late payments.

Sharp Rise in Monthly HARP Activity
The latest reading on refinances closed through the Home Affordable Refinance Program indicates a 42 percent month-over-month jump in activity -- with the Golden State seeing the most activity.

QM, QRM to Have Huge Impact on Originations
A new report indicates that just half of loans currently being originated would meet eligibility requirements of the Qualified Mortgage rule's safe harbor, while the share drops even more when factoring in Qualified Residential Mortgage risk-retention requirements.

Final Rule on Disparate Impact Issued
Despite industry opposition, the Department of Housing and Urban Development has issued a final rule that can find mortgage lenders guilty of discrimination even if there was no intent to discriminate.

HAMP Activity Continues
More borrowers had an active government-supported loan modification in placed during the final month of last year, though the monthly gains have been diminishing.

A new PennyMac holding company has been formed with plans to generate nearly $300 million from a public offering.

Mortgage Compliance Changes and Challenges

Ally Mortgage Originations Sink, Could Fall Further
Annual home-loan originations were down by more than 40 percent last year at Ally Financial Inc., and business is expected to slow even more. The company has had strong interest in the potential sale of mortgage servicing rights.

While consumer bankruptcies have slowed over the past year, they picked up over the last month. The outlook, however, is for fewer bankruptcy filings this year.

New data indicates that a large share of borrowers who are refinancing their mortgages are staying away from cashout. The report also indicates that borrowers are reducing their interest rates at a pace not seen in nearly three decades.

While a few providers are unveiling new offerings, several highlighted how existing products and services can help keep clients compliant.

MSR Purchases Boost Nationstar's Standing
With its latest acquisition of mortgage servicing rights, Nationstar Mortgage Holdings Inc. becomes the country's fifth-biggest mortgage servicer -- though that standing is likely to change with an upcoming acquisition by a rival servicer and additional planned MSR purchases by Nationstar. It's the third time that Nationstar has recently done an MSR deal with Bank of America Corp.'s banking subsidiary.

Mortgage Market Index 169 for week ended Feb. 1

Fannie Business at 9-Year High
