On February 13, the CFPB announced a plan to implement its recently adopted mortgage rules, which go into effect in January 2014. To assist financial institutions with implementing the rules, the CFPB will (i) coordinate with other agencies that conduct examinations of mortgage companies to ensure all regulators have a shared understanding of the CFPB’s new rules, (ii) publish plain-language guides in the spring, (iii) publish updates to the official interpretations, with priority given to issues that are important to a large number of providers or consumers, and that critically affect mortgage companies’ implementation decisions, (iv) publish readiness guides, available this summer, and (v) work with the FFIEC to develop more in-depth examination procedures.
