Freddie Mac has set a November implementation date for its plan to tighten restrictions on seller-funded down payments.

“As of Nov. 1, we’ll no longer allow gifts or grants from the originating lender for the first 2% of the down payment,” said Lisa Tibbitts, a spokeswoman for Freddie Mac in an email on Friday.
