They include the ability-to-repay/qualified mortgage rules, the high-costs mortgage and homeownership counseling rule, mortgage servicing rules, and loan originator compensation requirements. The Guide also includes a summary of the CFPB's mortgage escrow account rule, which took effect June 1, 2013.
