VACANT AND ABANDONED PROPERTIES WORKING GROUP
Leader – James Taylor, Wells Fargo
The concerns presented by the proliferation of vacant and abandoned residential properties are, at their core, consumer protection issues. These properties can potentially have a devastating effect on surrounding communities because they often become magnets for vandalism, squatting, and violent crime. In extreme cases, these properties have even led to the tragic loss of life. Surrounding properties can expect to experience a loss of value—a significant detriment to the primary source of wealth for many American families.
The Vacant & Abandoned Properties working group was researches and advocates on this crucial issue on behalf of the industry. The NMSA is working with HUD, CFPB, FHFA, and other federal stakeholders toward the promulgation of sensible policy that addresses the challenges that these properties create for servicers and the communities that they serve.
