The Urban Institute's Housing Finance Policy Center has just released a new report: FHA’s Proposed Servicing Reforms Need More Thought.

In her brief, Center Director Laurie Goodman expresses concern with the far-reaching implications of the July 15th rule proposed by the Federal Housing Administration.

She explains that the proposed strict limitations on filing claims will hamper access to credit for prospective FHA borrowers.

Goodman urges others to weigh in with their concerns by the September 4th comment deadline.
