Mortgage and Home Equity

Mortgage and home equity products have received increased regulatory and legislative scrutiny over the past few years.

CBA is focused primarily on the efforts of the CFPB to regulate in this space, including TILA-RESPA reform, Qualified Mortgage (QM) rulemaking, and Dodd-Frank Title 14 rulemaking.
