SAN FRANCISCO —

Wells Fargo says it has made a $591 million deal with Fannie Mae to settle obligations related to loans that went bad after the housing bubble burst.

The deal announced Monday covers loans made through 2008. Wells Fargo & Co. says it resolves nearly all repurchase liabilities it has with Fannie Mae, the federal mortgage buyer.

After adjusting for other repurchases, San Francisco-based Wells Fargo will pay out $541 million, which it says it had already set aside. Wells Fargo agreed in September to pay $869 million to Freddie Mac to settle similar claims.

Lenders including Bank of America, Citigroup and JPMorgan Chase have also agreed to settle mortgage claims with Fannie this year.
