CFPB proposes mortgage servicing rules

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau recently announced proposed rules that would help homeowners manage issues with mortgage servicers, which collect payments on behalf of loan holders, a press release from the Bureau said. Such rules would require "principal, interest, fees, escrow and due dates" to be clearly explained on monthly mortgage statements and would also require warnings and explanations regarding certain adjustable rate mortgages before they change. Information on options for struggling borrowers will be offered more rapidly, as will options for avoiding "forced-placed" insurance, the release said. Additional proposals would require payments to be credited to consumer accounts "the day payment is received"; errors to be more quickly addressed and corrected; and ongoing direct access to service staff members available to homeowners.
