GSE’s Provide Renter Awareness Lookup Tools and Other Protections

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are taking steps to support renters in multifamily housing financed by the government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) during the continued COVID-19 pandemic.  They provide online multifamily property loan lookup tools to make it easier for renters to see if the property where they reside has a Fannie- or Freddie-backed mortgage.  The lookup tool is searchable by ZIP code, and will help eliminate the need for renters to include property-specific details.

Fannie Mae’s Renters Resource Finder will provide information that may be helpful for renters, including how they can find assistance options that may be available if they live in a multifamily property financed by the company.
