AN ORDINANCE OF WELLINGTON, FLORIDA’S COUNCIL AMENDING CERTAIN SECTIONS OF CHAPTER 72 OF THE CODE OF ORDINANCES ENTITLED “MORTGAGED REAL PROPERTY REGISTRATION” TO PROVIDE AN EXEMPTION TO THOSE ENTITIES IDENTIFIED IN 12 U.S.C. §4617(a)(7);  PROVIDING A CONFLICTS CLAUSE; PROVIDING A SEVERABILITY CLAUSE; AND PROVIDING AN EFFECTIVE DATE.

…body

EXPLANATION:  The Village of Wellington recently received correspondence from General Counsel for the Federal Housing Finance Agency objecting to the fee imposed on Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and servicers acting on their behalf, on the basis that it was contrary to the provisions of 12 U.S.C. §4617(a)(7).  Although we do not agree that the law on this issue is settled, we nevertheless recommend amending our foreclosure registry ordinance to eliminate the fee imposed on these agencies and their servicers.  The entities will still be required to register.
