Excerpt from Six (6) Additional CFBP Rulemakings Pending:

Bankers are often hard-pressed to come up with much sympathy for their regulators, and that seems particularly true in the case of the CFPB, a relatively new regulator and one with which we have not had much experience. But when it comes to the current task at hand, reforming the business and process of originating residential mortgage loans, we all need to hope that they do their job well and wisely. The task will be difficult.

In a related article (see page 1), we discuss a recent proposed rule issued by the CFPB in response to a mandate in the Dodd-Frank Act ("DF Act"). That proposed rule seeks to simplify and consolidate disclosures to be given to mortgage loan applicants shortly after they submit an application for a mortgage loan, and then later provide disclosures related to the costs associated with the approved mortgage loan shortly before closing.
