In a letter to various regulators, the American Bankers Association noted survey data which highlights practical challenges associated with fully complying with all of the CFPB’s requirements for new mortgage-related rules which will become effective January 10, 2014. According to the ABA, community banks in particular reported that one of the most burdensome aspects of compliance is the development, customization, and implementation of information technology projects, including software, programming, and interfaces. The survey noted that 60% of respondents stated that their vendor(s) had not provided information on when they will provide all completed software and programming updates necessary for compliance. Delivery of the software would be followed by an integration and testing phase. The actual amount of time for financial institutions to comply is further shortened by the information technology “freeze” that some institutions have in place to manage existing year-end tax and reporting requirements. Survey respondents indicated it may not be possible to test or revise the new mortgage compliance systems during this lock-down period.

It provides a snap shot update of various legal developments and assists us in staying current. The articles are well covered and include the right amount of detail. The size and depth of articles are good too, so we can get to the information one needs very quickly. The articles are typically of high calibre and from high-calibre authors who provide sufficiently succinct articles so that one can learn much about new developments in a short amount of time. I like the format because it is easy to scan for relevant articles. It's a great tool.
