Fitch Rates CSMC's $520.9MM Mtge P-T Ctfs, Series 2007-1 Groups 2-5.

NEW YORK -- Credit Suisse Mortgage Securities Corp. mortgage pass-through certificates, series 2007-1 Groups 2-5, are rated as follows by Fitch:

--$503.64 million classes 2-A-1, 3-A-1, 3-A-2, 4-A-1, 5-A-1 to 5-A-16, A-X, and C-X (senior certificates) 'AAA';

--$10.205 million class C-B-1 'AA';

--$3.662 million class C-B-2 'A';

--$2.093 million class C-B-3 'BBB';

--$1.308 million class C-B-4 'BB'(privately offered).

The 'AAA' rating on the senior certificates reflect the 3.75% subordination provided by the 1.95% class C-B-1, 0.70% class C-B-2, 0.40% class C-B-3, 0.25% class C-B-4, 0.25% class C-B-5 (not rated by Fitch), and 0.20% class C-B-6 (not rated by Fitch).

Fitch believes the above credit enhancement will be adequate to support mortgagor defaults as well as bankruptcy, fraud and special hazard losses in limited amounts. In addition, the ratings also reflect the quality of the underlying mortgage collateral, strength of the legal and financial structures, and the master servicing capabilities of Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. (Master Servicer), which is rated 'RMS1' by Fitch.

The mortgage loans consist of 964 fixed-rate mortgage loans with an aggregate principal balance of $523,269,204 as of the cut-off date, Jan. 1, 2007. The mortgage pool has a weighted average loan-to-value ratio (LTV) of 68.6% with a weighted average mortgage rate of 6.540%. Cash-out refinance loans account for 32.90% and second homes 5.45%. The average loan balance is $542,810 and the loans are primarily concentrated in California (47.08%), Florida (6.97%), and New York (6.18%).

U.S. Bank National Association will serve as trustee. Credit Suisse First Boston Mortgage Securities Corp., a special purpose corporation, deposited the loans in the trust which issued the certificates.
