On August 15, 2012, six federal financial regulatory agencies issued a proposed rule to establish new appraisal requirements for "higher-risk mortgage loans." The proposed rule has been issued by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (Bureau), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Federal Housing Finance Agency, the National Credit Union Administration, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.

The proposed rule would implement amendments to the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) enacted by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (Dodd-Frank). Under the Dodd-Frank, mortgage loans are higher-risk if they are secured by a consumer's home and have interest rates above a certain threshold.
