The Community Home Lenders Association (CHLA) has proposed an innovative solution to enhance housing affordability, specifically addressing the issue of rising legal costs for mortgage lenders. In a letter sent to the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), the CHLA suggests the utilization of attorney opinion letters as a potential remedy.

By ensuring greater clarity on legal matters related to mortgage lending, attorney opinion letters may contribute to a more efficient transaction process.
