Two classes of Residential Accredit Loan Inc. mortgage pass-through certificates have been downgraded by Fitch Ratings.Class B-2 of series 2004-QS6 was downgraded from B to C/DR4, and class B-2 of series 2004-QS9 was downgraded from B to C/DR4. In addition, Fitch upgraded nine classes in three RALI transactions and affirmed the ratings on 160 classes in 36 RALI deals. Fitch attributed the downgrades to high delinquencies and losses. The loans in the securitizations consist of 15- and 30-year fixed-rate mortgages extended to prime and alternative-A borrowers, primarily on one- to four-family residential properties.
