(OnlineEd – Portland, OR) – The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (“CFPB”) gave 12 months (and sometimes less) from the “issue date” to implement the majority of these new requirements. Because the CFPB considers the “issue date” as the date of publication on the CFPB’s website – rather than publication in the Federal Register, your company will have less time to comply with the final rules.
Below lists the recent regulations along with a link to the regulation page on the CFPB website and the effective date.
June 1, 2013 – Escrow Requirements for Higher-Priced Mortgage Loans
June 1, 2013 – Prohibition on Mandatory Arbitration and Financing of Credit Insurance Premiums (from MLO Compensation Regulation)
January 10, 2014 – Qualified Mortgage and Ability-to-Repay Requirements
January 10, 2014 – Mortgage Servicing Requirements – Reg Z (TILA) and Reg X (RESPA)
January 10, 2014 – High-Cost/HOEPA Mortgage Loans and Homeownership Counseling Disclosures
January 18, 2014 – Disclosure and Delivery of Free Copies of Appraisals – Regulation B
January 18, 2014 – Appraisals for Higher-Priced Mortgage Loans
Make sure your company is keeping tabs on when these regulations go into effect and has a plan in place to ensure complete compliance in the event of an audit.
