Following an application for disclosure made before the three judge non jury court, the trial of Thomas McMahon, 32, with an address at Ros Fearna, Murroe and Noel Noonan, 35, of North Claughaun Road, Garryowen was halted as evidence was due outlining that both are alleged members of the IRA, On February 7, 2013, both men were arrested in County Tipperary during an operation where Gardai were investigating dissident republicans.The legal teams for both accused men asked the court for disclosure from An Garda Siochana as to whether or not conversations their clients had with lawyers were recorded. Defence counsels, Isobel Kennedy SC and Anthony Sammon SC, outlined that the accused men had phone conversations with solicitors before garda interviews. Tara Burns SC, prosecution counsel for the State said that Gardai knew nothing, at the time, about what has since emerged. The matter was adjourned until later this week for clarification on whether or not recordings were made.

Loan-to-Value Ratios, Credit Scores Rise in Q3 2019

Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Debt-to-income (DTI) ratios are on the decline, loan-to-value (LTV) ratios are on the rise, and average credit scores for conventional conforming home loans ticked up as of Q3 2019, according to the latest data from CoreLogic. The average DTI for conventional conforming loans was 36% for Q3 2019, down one point from a year earlier. CoreLogic noted that this shift may be a result of a “relaxing of affordability pressures” as mortgage rates eased in 2019. Mortgage rates declined over the first three quarters of the year and were down 1 percentage point on an annual basis in the third quarter of the year. LTV ratios averaged 83% in the quarter—up one point from a year ago. CoreLogic noted that “credit-risk attributes of borrowers have shown dramatic variation in the last 20 years,” but that while DTI and LTV ratios have relaxed overall, “there has been no change in credit score standards.”Also, the high DTI and LTV loans tend to be fully documented “and thus are different than the pre-housing crash high DTI and LTV loans,” many of which were low or no-documentation loans. Over the past few years, new policies loosening credit standards for the GSEs have helped push average DTI and LTV ratios up for conventional conforming home loans. Fannie Mae changed its DTI limit from 45% to 50% in July 2017. From 2012 up to the announcement of this change, the share of conventional conforming loans with DTIs above 45% ranged between 5% and 7%. It rose to a high of 21% in the Q4 2018 and has been dropping over the past year.  The GSEs also loosened LTV standards, leading to a rise in LTV ratios. Fewer than 2% of conventional conforming loans had LTV ratios higher than 95% in 2014. In Q2 2019, the share was 12%. However, while LTV and DTI ratios are relaxing, credit scores are not. Today’s borrowers have much higher credit scores than those borrowing before the housing crash. In 2001, the average credit scores for home purchasers was 705. As of the third quarter of 2019, the average credit score was 754, significantly higher than pre-crisis levels and two points higher than a year earlier.  in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days agocenter_img Related Articles The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Krista Franks Brock is a professional writer and editor who has covered the mortgage banking and default servicing sectors since 2011.
