US Govt. wants mortgage data

The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency says that nine large banks must provide detailed information on mortgage delinquencies and foreclosures every month to a federal regulator. Citigroup Inc., Bank of America Corp., Wells Fargo & Co., JPMorgan Chase & Co., US Bancorp, National City Corp. HSBC Plc and First Horizon National Corp. are among the banks required to hand over this data. The OCC wants data including delinquencies, foreclosures and efforts to modify mortgages and hopes to better supervise the major banks and the loans they service in the future. The OCC is looking for information on all loans, not just subprime loans made to borrowers with poor credit. Three weeks ago, a group of state attorneys general blamed the OCC for hampering a study on foreclosures, that they said were wreaking havoc on local economies. The OCC is also planning to collect data on home equity loans later this year.
