Mortgage and Lending
Regulation of the mortgage and lending industries is the stuff of legends – and nightmares. From the subprime implosion of 2007 to the regulatory rollback of 2017, the last ten years have offered a rollercoaster ride for any professional working in the mortgage or lending fields. Lending and offering mortgages to consumers has never been more fraught with risk – or subject to so much change.
Regulators from the Federal Reserve to the CFPB have gotten in on the act, and if you are responsible for your institution’s mortgage and lending portfolios or practices, you need to understand any and all of the following federal laws, as well as the rules and regulations promulgated under them:
- CFPB regulations on loan originator compensation
- The Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA)
- The Truth in Lending Act (TILA)
- The Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA)
- The Military Lending Act (MLA)
- The Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act (SAFE)
Regulatory Compliance and Risk Management
The financial services industry continues to top the charts in term of regulatory risk. From stress testing to cybersecurity audits, the institutions and companies that operate in this space face a shifting regulatory compliance landscape that requires a clear risk management strategy at every turn.
Consumer protection measures aimed at lending and mortgages are only some of the pieces of the puzzle. Our financial experts are on top of the latest regulations – and rollbacks – that could affect your bank or other financial services company. Whether you need to prepare for a CFPB audit or understand the prohibitions against kickbacks and unearned fees in Section 8 of RESPA and Regulation X, you can find a webinar or audio conference to match your risk management needs.
