    Getty Images If you've thought about refinancing your mortgage, be aware that it may soon be a more expensive proposition.

"If you assume it takes two months to close [on the refinance], anything applied for after early October could push to December," said Joel Kan, associate vice president of economic and industry forecasting for the Mortgage Bankers Association.VIDEO1:5701:57Coronavirus mortgage bailouts drop 0.7%, the smallest drop in four weeksSquawk BoxFor a $280,000 mortgage,...

    A squabble over a mortgage fee seems badly out of touch during a crisis in which millions of renters face eviction due to the pandemic’s economic fallout. Government-backed loan buyers Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac said on Tuesday, Aug. 25 that they’ll delay until Dec. 1 a half-point fee on refinanced loans. The surcharge is designed to help pay for losses the agencies estimate will incur while helping financially troubled borrowers.

The mortgage industry’s outrage and the resulting regulatory capitulation is a stark contrast to what feels like continued indifference to the plight of tenants and their landlords. As...

They say it’s necessary to help pay for the support they have provided homeowners through forbearance programs and moratoriums on foreclosure and evictions. “This modest fee will help us...
