FITB Agrees to $25m Mortgage Repurchase Claims Settlement with Freddie Mac

retailbanking.banking-business-review.com | November 27, 2013

By Thomas Grillo

Fifth Third Bancorp (FITB) has agreed to reimburse $25m to Freddie Mac to resolve certain repurchase claims associated with mortgage loans originated and sold prior to 1 January 2009.

Under the terms of the agreement, FITB will make a cash payment of $25m to Freddie Mac, after paid claim credits and other adjustments.

The lender said that its mortgage representation and warranty reserves associated with the loans covered by the agreement were fully sufficient to cover the payment amount, as of 30 September 2013.

Fifth Third inked a tentative agreement with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to settle a probe into its accounting for commercial real estate loans in 2008.

Both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac busted during the financial crisis of 2008, due to the high exposure of faulty residential mortgage backed securities (RMBS) and were subsequently injected with nearly $187.5bn by the US government to keep them running.
