According to the report, U.S. single-family rents increased 2.9% year over year in December 2019, while the national CoreLogic Home Price Index increased more than 3% in 2019 and is forecast to rise about 5% in 2020.CoreLogic found that the nation’s overall delinquency was 3.9% in November 2019, which is a marginal decline from last year’s 4%. November’s reading was the lowest reading for November in more than 20 years.The share of delinquent mortgages in November historically peaked in 2009 at 11.5%. Since March 2018, the overall delinquency rate each month has been lower than the pre-crisis period from 2000 to 2006. The rate averaged 4.7% during that time.The report also covered the end of LIBOR. Jacqueline Doty, Executive, Product Management, Collateral Risk Solutions at CoreLogic, explained that the end of LIBOR will impact $1.2 trillion dollars in adjustable-rate mortgages.”It means that lenders with loans or lines of credit based on the LIBOR index will need to identify and review the terms of all of their LIBOR loans,” said Doty. “A portfolio of loans likely contains a wide variety of terms regarding LIBOR, and this will need to be assessed.”LIBOR’s end is likely to impact more than lenders and borrowers. According to Fitch Ratings, U.S. RMBS servicers showed an improved awareness of difficulties and implications tied to the anticipated expiration of LIBOR at the end of 2021.To help facilitate the likely transition away from LIBOR, Doty notes that the Federal Reserve convened a working group called the Alternative Reference Rates Committee. The ARRC has recommended an alternative to the LIBOR index called the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR) and has started promoting its use on a voluntary basis.Lenders may need to face modification. Between now and the end of LIBOR, there’s a good possibility that many loans will need to be modified because the fallback provisions are either nonexistent, unclear or impractical.”For example, in some cases, the margin cannot be adjusted and it is either too high or too low when added to the new alternate index,” Doty said.But there’s no need to panic just yet,” she adds. “The good news is there’s still time to successfully manage a smooth and efficient transition. Now is a good time for lenders to start auditing their loan data and documents and planning for fulfillment of amendments or borrower notifications.” Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

first_imgFREDERIC J. BROWN/AFP/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti is highlighting the plans in motion to tackle the city’s homelessness crisis, which he described as “perhaps the most complex and difficult civic challenge” in a generation.Last week, the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority announced that the number of homeless people in Los Angeles County jumped 12 percent over the past year to a total of 58,936.Youth homelessness rose 24 percent, in part due to improvements in counting the population, and the number of seniors 62 and over rose more than 8 percent, according to the release.In an open letter to residents Tuesday, Garcetti wrote that the problem needs to be treated like “the humanitarian emergency that it is.”“That starts with me,” he said.More than 100 projects are in the works to help alleviate the problem, Garcetti said, adding that the “first job” is to build housing because “Angelenos are becoming homeless faster than we can provide housing for them.”The homelessness budget has increased to more than $460 million for housing and services, 25 times what it was four years ago, and the city is ahead of its goal to build 100,000 new units of housing, according to the letter.“As your mayor, I take full responsibility for our response to this crisis,” Garcetti said. “And like everyone who has seen families in tents or spoken to a homeless veteran in need, I am both heartbroken and impatient.”Garcetti also called upon the private sector “to do more” amid the city’s growing economy.“If you’re a business owner with a parking lot that goes unused at night, I’ll ask you to open it up to people who live in their vehicles and need a place to park,” he wrote. “If you’re an executive for one of L.A.’s many successful startup companies, I’ll ask you to hire homeless Angelenos and contribute to our cause. I’ll ask more landlords to work with rehousing programs, so that families experiencing homelessness can make it out of shelters and into homes.”A December report from a local pest control company hired by the city shows that the homeless population living near the civic center were creating a “harborage for rodents” in the City Hall due to poor sanitary conditions that include leftover food, human waste and hypodermic needles, according to the Los Angeles Times. The company recommended that the city clear away the homeless people living nearby, the Times reported.Statewide data shows that California has 129,972 homeless residents, the second-largest in state history after the Great San Francisco Earthquake struck in 1906, which resulted in more than 200,000 people losing their homes overnight, according to the letter.California Gov. Gavis Newsom has proposed to increase the state’s housing and homelessness funding to $1 billion.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
