As the implementation period begins for adapting your business practices to the extensive new rule, it is crucial to understand what’s changed and how. In this audio seminar, our expert legal panel broke down the new regulation for you and provided solid and useable steps for compliance.
The rule prohibits unfair, abusive or deceptive home mortgage lending practices and restricts certain other mortgage practices. The final rule also establishes advertising standards and requires certain mortgage disclosures to be given to consumers earlier in the transaction.
The rule covers a broad range of issues, which were discussed during the show:
- Lenders' assessment of consumers' ability to repay loans
- Lending with little or no documentation of income
- Prepayment penalties
- Escrow accounts for property taxes and insurance
- Mortgage servicing practices
- Coercion of appraisers
- Misleading or deceptive advertising practices
- Disclosure of Truth in Lending notices early enough to help consumers shop for a mortgage
Who Should Listen?
- Mortgage originators
- General Counsels
- Compliance Professionals
- Mortgage brokers
- Loan officers
The Federal Reserve also proposed mortgage broker disclosure changes that were not included in the final rule. In this show, we’ll take a look at why the yield spread premium was left out, how rulemaking is still going forward on that issue, and in what form it may return.
