No. At this link you will see that a bill that speaks to this was initiated in the house but it never became law. So, a loan subject to FNMA regulations requires all homeowners on a private driveway or easement to sign a private road maintenance agreement. According to FNMA, if a written agreement cannot be obtained, “the lender must indemnify Fannie Mae for any losses or expenses it may incur due to the physical condition of the street or in order to establish and/or access thereto.”
Please assign a feedback rating so JA will compensate me for my time and we can close out this question. Thank you.
