About This Event

Prepare your credit union for regulatory change and minimize the risk. The Regulatory Wave of 2013 has begun with new CFPB rulings issued on January 10, 2013. Do you understand the impacts these new rules will have on your mortgage lending operations? Join us for an overview of what they mean to credit unions and for a look ahead at future guidance and implementation dates.

During this webinar, you will learn:

Qualified Mortgage Rule
  • What constitutes a 'qualified mortgage' under the new rule
  • When a qualified mortgage is entitled to a safe harbor and when it is entitled to only a rebuttable presumption
  • The ability to repay standard for non-qualified mortgages, the new rules on rural balloon payment mortgages, prepayment penalties, record retention and the concurrent proposal to create a special category of qualified mortgage for certain small creditors

  • The new coverage test for high cost mortgages
  • The new restrictions and requirements for high cost mortgages
  • The new home ownership counseling requirements

  • Changes to the requirement to establish an escrow account for higher-priced mortgages
  • The exemption for small creditors in rural or underserved areas
