The Federal Reserve has just proposed the most sweeping changes to the mortgage provisions of the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) ever seen. The major proposal would place new limitations on payments to mortgage brokers and loan officers, and prohibit originators from steering borrowers to mortgage products that aren’t in their “best interest.”

Find out about the Fed’s latest effort to rein in mortgage lending and how it will impact your business with this new Inside Mortgage Finance audio conference.

The Federal Reserve’s massive proposal is now out for comment and would require lenders to effectively warn borrowers of potentially risky loan features such as adjustable rates, prepayment penalties and negative amortization. It also embraces the notion that borrowers should be given an annual percentage rate (APR) that reflects most fees and settlement costs as well as some idea of how their rate compares to the average rate of a borrower with perfect credit.

How expensive will these new rules be to lenders and borrowers? Which TILA changes will have the greatest impact on your business? Hear from a panel of experts and get answers to questions about the new TILA changes.

These Experts Share Their Insights and Answer Your Questions:

  • Paul Mondor, Senior Attorney, Division of Consumer and Community Affairs, Board of Governors, Federal Reserve System;
  • Steven M. Kaplan, Partner, K&L Gates LLP;
  • Andrew Budish, VP Legal and Compliance, Morgan Stanley; and
  • Guy Cecala, Publisher, Inside Mortgage Finance, moderates.

During This 90-Minute Session You'll Find Out:

  • How to determine which loan is in the borrower’s “best interest;”
  • What will be included in the “simple graph” given to borrowers about how their loan’s APR compares to the average rate of people with sterling credit;
  • What are the issues with providing initial disclosures within three days after loan application, and final TILA disclosures three days before loan closing;
  • When lenders can safely terminate an account for delinquency;
  • What new disclosures will be required for a HELOC;
  • What about the timing conflicts between existing law and these proposed rules;
  • What are the implementation issues for lenders and brokers regarding closing and due diligence processes, and more

After the November elections, how long will it take for a new Congress and White House to pass GSE reform legislation?

I’m confident a bill will be passed the first year.


2 to 3 years. GSE reform is complicated.


Sadly it won’t happen in a Clinton or Trump first term.


Not in my lifetime.
