In 2008, Congress passed and President George Bush signed into law the Housing and Economic Recovery Act, (Public Law 110-289) (HERA). HERA is designed to assist with the recovery and the revitalization of America’s residential housing market – from modernization of the Federal Housing Administration, to foreclosure prevention, to enhancing consumer protections. The SAFE Act is a key component of HERA.

The SAFE Act is designed to enhance consumer protection and reduce fraud by encouraging states to establish minimum standards for the licensing and registration of state-licensed mortgage loan originators. The SAFE Act requires states to have licensing and registration systems by July 31, 2010. Indiana’s SAFE Act law was passed last year and goes into effect in June 2010. An easier-to-read version of the Indiana law appears in the Indiana Administrative Code.

This article explores the new law and recent changes to Indiana's regulations.
