On March 15, Colorado enacted HB 1017, which requires a loan servicer to whom servicing rights for a residential mortgage have been sold or transferred to honor or continue processing any pending loan modification, as long as the borrower’s acceptance of the loan modification occurs prior to the sale or transfer of servicing rights. The bill also requires that, at the time of transfer, the prior servicer must disclose any pending loan modifications to the new servicer. The new provisions took effect immediately and apply to all modification offers made on or after March 15, 2013.
