Apparently bowing to the unrelenting clamour for the reform of the critical aspects of the nation’s mortgage system, the apex supervisory authority, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) may have began a clampdown on Primary Mortgage Banks (PMBs) that ceased to carry mortgage business for which they were licensed.

The development is on the heels of new regulatory guidelines for PMBs aimed at recapitalising and repositioning them as specialized banks through the Other Financial Institutions Supervision Department (OFID) of the CBN. Under the new capital requirement, state and national PMBs will shore up their shareholders fund to the tune of N2.5 billion and N5 billion respectively, with compliance date fixed as April 2013.
