Wells Fargo Reaches $591M Deal with Fannie Mae

bizjournals.com | December 31, 2013

By Adam O'Daniel

Wells Fargo & Co. (NYSE:WFC) has reached a $591 million deal with Fannie Mae to settle allegations of mortgage wrongdoings, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The deal is centered around demands Fannie made of Wells Fargo for mortgages originated pre-2009. Fannie believes the San Francisco-based bank had sold it mortgages that were of inferior quality than advertised and wanted Wells to repurchase the loans.

Freddie Mac and its larger sister, Fannie Mae, purchased billions of dollars of mortgages from large private lenders during the subprime mortgage boom. When the market soured, the agencies were bailed out by the federal government.

Both agencies have been aggressively making claims against the banks that allegedly sold them poorly underwritten loans, asking the lenders to repurchase the loans in question.

The latest agreement with Fannie Mae settles disputes over all loans Wells sold the agency before 2009.

Wells Fargo is the largest mortgage lender in the U.S. It has about 20,700 employees in Charlotte.
