WASHINGTON COURT REJECTS STATE BASED MONOPOLY, SUPPORTING NHF ENTRY INTO HOUSING FINANCE ASSISTANCE MARKET

Sacramento, CA, June 15, 2018 – The Washington State Court of Appeals unanimously ruled in favor of National Homebuyers Fund, Inc. (NHF) this week, in a lawsuit filed by Washington State Housing Finance Commission (WSHFC), ordering dismissal of the case in its entirety due to WSHFC’s lack of standing. WSHFC filed suit against NHF and its sister entities in 2015, alleging that NHF did not have authority to provide homeownership financing services outside of California. The unanimous ruling of the Court of Appeals of the State of Washington on June 11, 2018 reversed a prior trial court decision.
