The article discusses the U.S. Federal Housing Administration's (FHA's) method for calculating lenders' liability for loan defaults. The article notes the FHA is considering a method that is based on a sampling of loans with underwriting defects which will extrapolate a rate for lenders' estimated total risk to the FHA's insurance fund and make it more expensive to be a FHA lender. The Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD's) risk measure for lenders is mentioned.
