CMBA Joins Coalition Opposing Eminent Domain in New Letter to FHFA

Today, CMBA joined local, state, and national groups in sending a letter to the Federal Housing Finance Agency expressing our continuing concern about potentially harmful effects that the use of eminent domain would have on local economies and housing markets.  Click

As you are probably aware, several municipalities in the state and throughout the nation are now considering various proposals that would utilize their eminent domain authority to seize underwater mortgages from investors and re-write new loans for the borrowers at current market values. 
CMBA is coordinating with several local, state, and national groups to oppose these efforts; however, it can be difficult to stay abreast of current developments.  As we did with the California Homeowner Bill of Rights, CMBA will be providing updated news on our homepage -  Go there now to find out the latest on the activities in San Bernardino and Berkeley.  Other localities will likely begin considering their own proposals, so click back to often to make sure you stay informed!  For more detailed information, or if you have any tips on activity in your area, feel free to call the CMBA office at (916) 446-7100.
