FANNIE MAE & FREDDIE MAC WILL COST HOME OWNERS OVER A BILLION DOLLARS IF ACTION IS NOT TAKEN IMMEDIATLY!
On January 1st 2001 the secondary market ( Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) removed your right of prepayment on a home mortgage.
(THE FOLLOWING WAS REMOVED)
"The note holder will use (all of) my prepayments to reduce the amount of principal that I owe under this note. 1"
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO THE AVERAGE CONSUMER?
That they will be required to make "all monthly payments due under the Note 2" before they can reduce the principle.
IN LAYMEN'S TERMS
It means that you can not prepay a mortgage or reduce the amount of interest that you will pay on your mortgage loan. This will cost a homeowner thousands of dollars.
FANNIE MAE AND FREDDIE MAC LOOKED OUT FOR WHO!
Their stock investors at the expense of "American home buyers". This is apparent by looking at the new note language as of January 1st 2001 compared to the prior note language.

2) Multistate Fixed Rate Note - Form 3200 1/01
FANNIE MAE AND FREDDIE MAC RIP OFF CONSUMERS???
Historically homeowners have had the right to prepay their mortgages and only pay interest on the money that they owe from time to time. Changes made in the Multistate Fixed Rate Note (3200) as of January 2001 appear to have take away this right.
The note that originated in 12/83 and was modified in 9/91 has changed. The first change is in section 3 of the note titled "Payments". Originally the note said "My monthly payments will be applied to interest before principal." This has been changed to "Each monthly payment will be applied as of its scheduled due date and will be applied to interest before Principal."
The second change is in section 4 of the note titled "Borrower's Right To Prepay". The changes are as follows;
1/01 I may not designate a payment as a Prepayment if I have not made all the monthly payments due under the Note. (Added to end of first paragraph)
12/83 The note holder will use all of my prepayments to reduce the amount of principal that I owe under this note. (“all of” Deleted from second paragraph)
1/01 However, the Note Holder may apply my Prepayment to the accrued and unpaid interest on the prepayment amount, before applying my Prepayment to reduce the Principal amount of the Note. (Added after second Sentence in second paragraph).
WHY DID FANNIE MAE AND FREDDIE MAC CHANGE THE LANGUAGE OF THE NOTE SO DRASTICALLY THAT HAS NOT CHANGED SINCE BEFORE DECEMBER OF 1983?
Because of one individual that was trying to help the consumers save interest charges with a few simple changes in how they paid their mortgage. Because of something called the ‘Mortgage Maximizer' that was presented to Fannie Mae in February of 2000 by John Combs.
CAN THIS BE PROVED?
It can be proved that the ‘Mortgage Maximizer' was presented to Liz Ryan, Senior Affordable Housing Business Manger of Fannie Mae at the Chicago Association of Realtors. The ‘Mortgage Maximizer' information system was shown to Liz on that date and she took the video program to show to others at Fannie Mae.
Since Fannie Mae said (www.fanniemae.com/savings/index.html) it is all about saving money for America's home buyers Mr. Combs thought that this would be a great program to help consumers and showed it willingly to Fannie Mae. Mr. Combs was eager to get this out to the public and called several times after the initial showing of the program to Fannie Mae but no calls where returned.
It can be shown that before the ‘Mortgage Maximizer' was presented to Fannie Mae consumers could prepay and the note holder would be required to use all of the prepayments to reduce the amount of principal that the borrower owed under the note. (see Deleted line from 2nd paragraph of 3200 note 12/83).
If done correctly under the old note (3200 - 12/83) borrowers had the ability to use the lenders payment (amortization) schedule to track, audit and prepay a mortgage to eliminate scheduled interest payments saving thousands of dollars over the course of the mortgage.
With the removal of ‘All of’ from "The note holder will use all of my prepayments to reduce the amount of principal that I owe under this note" only one conclusion can be drawn, that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac do not want consumers to prepay a mortgage and save interest. Considering that this happened after the presentation of the ‘Mortgage Maximizer' from John Combs it is a logical conclusion.
WHO IS AWARE OF THE NOTE CHANGE THAT OCCURRED JANUARY OF 2001?
John Combs has talked with title people, attorneys, accountants, lenders and real estate professionals and to date none of them where aware of the changes. This puts many of them at risk for giving out incorrect information in regards to prepaying a home mortgage.
WHO SHOULD BE AWARE OF THE "MORTGAGE MAXIMIZER" AND THE CHANGES TO THE MULTISTATE FIXED RATE NOTE?
Bankers or lenders, title people, attorneys, accountants, real estate professionals and everyone who has a mortgage, plans to have a mortgage or is planning on refinancing a mortgage.
Bankers or lenders may not care about the changes to the note, but should be aware of it.
Title people, attorneys, accountants, real estate professionals and others that advice consumers in real estate transactions need to know the changes so that they don't give misinformation to consumers.
Consumers need to be aware that if they plan to refinance that they will lose their rights to prepay their mortgage and the ability to save interests and private mortgage expense. (PMI), based on the new mortgage language.
IS THE NEW LANGUAGE ON THE NOTE CLEAR?
No! Due to the confusing language of the Multistate Fixed Rate Note released January 2001 many lenders, Realtors and lawyers have different opinions. Only when comparing notes to each other does it become obvious that the intent of the changes where to stop borrowers from being able to prepay to skip and thus save scheduled interest payments. This is especially apparent after viewing the ‘Mortgage Maximizer'.
WHAT IS THE INTENT OF FANNIE MAE AND FREDDIE MAC IN CHANGING THEIR NOTE LANGUAGE?
John Combs can not to date get Fannie Mae to clarify the intent of the language. It is apparent to John that the new note language takes away the right to borrowers to save interest expense by prepaying and that the changes to the note were a direct result of him showing his ‘Mortgage Maximizer' to Fannie Mae. If that is not their intent then they need to clarify the new note language that can be interpreted as not taking away the borrowers right to prepay to avoid interest expense on the prepayment amount.
WHAT IS THE "Mortgage Maximizer"?
It is a learn for life do it yourself mortgage tracking and prepayment system that allows borrowers to properly prepay their mortgage systematically, on a payment to payment basis, as they can afford to and within their monthly budget. Provided on a 30 minute VHS tape, it takes you through all the required steps to properly prepay your debt to eliminate paying scheduled interest payments and reducing required Private Mortgage Insurance payments. This is possible by properly utilization the lenders payment (amortization) schedule. Included is how to adapt the Lenders payment schedule for your use, provides you the required written notice of a prepayment as required by your note and much more. Conceived in 1992 the ‘Mortgage Maximizer' resulted in the creation of a not for profit organization in 1999 called the "Consumer Debt Reduction Institute". John Combs is the founder and president.
The Consumer Debt Reduction Institute is an organization that was formed to be a resource and advocacy organization for consumers throughout the Continental United States with regards to consumer debt. It's purpose will be to research, provide programs, partner with others and provide education to all consumers on how best to deal with consumer debt from the consumer's prospective.
