The Effect of State Foreclosure Laws on Loan Losses: Evidence from the Mortgage Insurance Industry
AbstractThis paper analyzes the effect of three major provisions of state foreclosure laws (procedure, redemption period, and provision for deficiency judgment) on loan losses as reflected in the claims paid by private mortgage insurers and the FHA. It also explores the significance of the incentive conflict between the lender and the insurer in terms of the presence or absence of a coinsurance relationship and the existence of a deficiency judgment. The results demonstrate that foreclosure laws have a significant effect on loan losses and that the existence of a deficiency judgment affects the incentive conflict between lender and insurer.
