Mortgage and Home Equity
Mortgage and home equity products have received increased regulatory and legislative scrutiny over the past few years. Historically, CBA has focused on home equity as a major retail product of our members. However, the Dodd-Frank Act’s elimination of federal preemption standards previously afforded to operational subsidiaries has forced many depository institutions to internalize their primary mortgage products, making them a more traditional retail issue. 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.
