CFPB's Flatland Fee

more+
less-

Kicked in the gut by a "flat fee" proposal, the already winded mortgage industry seems to be barely able to catch its breath from the CFPB's recent lurching toward yet another vaguely expected and somewhat ill-defined nostrum.

The pattern replays itself time and again: first the news, followed by the rulemaking proposal, which is then given a brief period for public acquiescence or remonstrance; and then inevitably the final rule, which is much like the initial proposal. Early on, industry associations issue a Call to Action!

Alas, when the Federal Register publishes the effective compliance date, everybody falls in line and scrambles to adjust. Sometimes, a few organizations even threaten litigation, though, when tried, litigating has not thus far brought about much satisfaction.

Exactly what is this Flat Fee debacle?

Let's take a peek at this flatland mystery.
