Insured mortgage defaults rose again in October, but the number of loans brought up to date also increased, according to a report by Mortgage Insurance Companies of America.

The association of the largest mortgage insurers said Monday that 80,071 mortgages with insurance went into default last month, or became 60 days past due, up 4.3% from September. In April, one lender changed its default reporting, making figures before April not directly comparable to monthly figures since then.
