CFPB Plans Release Of Mortgage Loan Originator Rule


On January 18, the CFPB announced that it will release a final rule regarding mortgage loan originator compensation and qualifications on Sunday, January 20. According to its press release, the rule will (i) prohibit steering incentives, (ii) prohibit “dual compensation,” and (iii) set qualification and screening standards for loan originators, but it will not require, as proposed, that mortgage loan originators make available a loan option with no upfront discount points or origination fees, if they were making available one with upfront discount points or origination fees. The press release states that while the majority of the loan originator rule will take effect in January 2014, certain provisions related to mandatory arbitration restrictions will take effect in June 2013. BuckleySandler will review the rule once it is released and provide additional analysis.
