Interest Rate Freeze on Adjustable Rate Mortgages

More to follow, but today's news, and it should be good news for many people, is that rates for loans initiated January 1, 2005 through July 30, 2007 will stay put. If your rates were scheduled for a "reset" between January 1, 2008 and July 31, 2010, the preliminary information, to be announced tomorrow, is that your present rates will not go up per your original schedule on your loan documents, but will remain where they are. If there is also a .5% drop in long term rates on the 11th by the Federal Reserve, this should indeed be good news for borrowers. There are specific terms to this agreement, of course, and two of them are most likely going to be that this agreement between the Bush Administration and the lending industry applies to those who are current on their loan payments and those who have owner-occupied loans.
