Fannie Mae is offering to let troubled borrowers who don’t qualify for a loan modification stay in their homes as renters if they volunteer to relinquish ownership through a deed in lieu of foreclosure.

Fannie Mae’s Deed for Lease program is also available to qualified borrowers who had previously been granted a loan modification but were unable to keep up their payments.
