CFPB implements CUNA-recommended changes to mortgage rules

first_imgThe Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Tuesday issued an interim final rule that broadens the availability of certain special provisions for credit unions and other small creditors in the Regulation Z qualified mortgage and escrow rules. It is a victory for the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), which strongly advocated for it in both the regulatory and legislative fronts.“This is an important win for credit unions and consumers alike,” CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle declared Tuesday. “The rule reduces the burden of recent CFPB mortgage lending rules on more credit unions, and these member-owned, community-based financial institutions will be able to provide more credit to consumers in rural and underserved areas.
