On May 7, the CFPB proposed to temporarily delay the effective date of one aspect of its loan originator compensation rule. Under the final rule, effective June 1, 2013, creditors would be prohibited from financing premiums or fees for certain credit insurance products offered in connection with certain mortgage loan transactions. The CFPB proposes to temporarily delay the relevant provision so that the Bureau can clarify its application to transactions other than those in which a lump-sum premium is added to the loan amount at closing. The CFPB plans to publish a new proposal to seek further notice and comment about whether, and under what circumstances, premiums for certain credit insurance products can be charged on a periodic basis in connection with a covered consumer credit transaction.
