Yes they do. There has been some confusion over this with the Hope for Homeowners programs called Fannie Mae DU REFI Plus and Freddie Mac Relief Refi.

These programs are for use if you are looking to refinance when you are close to or over equity in your property. Originally, these programs were limited to refinancing with the original lender but now they both allow OPEN ACCESS to all lenders participating. That is good news for the homeowner who can now shop around for the best loan.

On regular Fannie and Freddie loans, there are no restrictions on who can or what lenders can refinance their products.

If you would like more informain or more specific information regarding your scenario, please contact me. I would be glad to help.
