The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) recently released updates to its Mortgage Rules Readiness Guide that include changes to final rules issued by the bureau through October 15, 2013, covering both the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) and the Truth in Lending Act (TILA). The new mortgage regulations were first issued in January 2013 and were amended through October. The guide serves to help financial institutions and other industry participants "evaluate their readiness for the 2013 mortgage rule changes," which are set to take effect in January 2014 (See our Nov 27, 2013, blog post for more information).
