On April 14, 2015, the US Office of the Comptroller of the Currency issued the “Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act” booklet of the Comptroller’s Handbook. The revised booklet replaces a similar booklet issued in October 2011 and provides updated information resulting from recent changes in Regulation X (12 CFR 1024) related to mortgage servicing and loss mitigation. Additionally, on April 15, 2015, the OCC issued the “Trade Finance and Services” booklet of the Comptroller’s Handbook. The revised booklet replaces the “Trade Finance” and “Bankers’ Acceptances” booklets issued in November 1998 and September 1999, respectively.
