In an effort to address outstanding questions regarding the new mortgage rules that are scheduled to take effect in January 2014, CFPB staff provided non-binding, informal guidance in two webinars hosted by the Mortgage Bankers Association. Specifically, CFPB staff answered questions regarding the mortgage servicing rules on October 16, 2013 and questions regarding the mortgage origination rules (including the Ability-to-Repay/Qualified Mortgage and Loan Originator Compensation rules) on October 17, 2013.
The CFPB staff’s slides presenting the questions addressed during the webinars and the audio recordings of their responses are available through the MBA’s Compliance Resource Center. BuckleySandler has prepared transcripts of the servicing and mortgage origination webinars that incorporate the CFPB’s slides. These transcripts are provided for informational purposes only and do not constitute legal opinions, interpretations, or advice by BuckleySandler. The transcripts were prepared from the audio recordings provided by the MBA and may have minor inaccuracies due to sound quality. In addition, the transcripts have not been reviewed by the CFPB for accuracy or completeness.
