 Fannie mae has sent a notice to its lenders and attorneys that all Foreclosures on Fannie Mae backed loans will be suspended until 2009. This is being done while the Federal Government streamline modification program is being implemented. The streamline program takes effect on December 15, 2008. If you know any one facing foreclosure please ask them to call their lender to see if they have a Fannie Mae backed loan. I have already helped one family with this.
Happy Thanksgiving
