On October 15, CFTC released a bulletin and interim final rule to clarify mortgage servicing rules taking effect in January 2014. The clarifications address communications with family members after a borrower dies, contact with delinquent borrowers, and treatment of consumers who have filed for bankruptcy or invoked certain protections under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. The interim final rule also clarifies regulations issued in January to implement a provision of the Dodd-Frank Act that requires consumers to receive housing counseling before taking out a high-cost mortgage.
