As we previously reported, on February 6, 2018, the Pennsylvania Department of Banking and Securities issued regulations incorporating many of the CFPB’s mortgage servicing regulations. The Pennsylvania Code was further amended in April to incorporate provisions that address successors in interest and their rights under the Code.
The updated Code defines both “successor in interest,” as well as “confirmed successor in interest,” and sets forth the actions that servicers must take in order to identify successors in interest, what must be done once a successor in interest has been identified and confirmed, and the rights of successors in interest.
The amended regulations were effective on April 28, 2018.
