Senate Banking Committee Discusses Regulatory Burden on Community Banks, Credit Unions

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts), a chief architect of the CFPB, pointed out to Daniel Blanton, chairman-elect of the American Bankers’ Association, that the earnings of community banks increased significantly in 2014 and even said they were doing “better than big banks.””We’ve heard a lot today about how smaller banks are being smothered by unnecessary regulation, supposedly because of Dodd-Frank rules, like the new mortgage rules that went into effect in the first quarter of 2014,” Warren said. “. . .[T]he banking industry did substantially better after the (CFPB’s) mortgage rules went into effect in January of 2014. Why are they making more money since the rules went into effect and are doing better than the big banks?”Senator Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), ranking member of the Committee, told the lawmakers that Congress passed, and the President signed into law, several regulatory relief proposals that received bipartisan support.“If we hope to find consensus on more regulatory relief proposals for community banks and credit unions this Congress, we will need to engage in a process similar to the one that allowed these bills to make it across the finish line,” Brown said. “. . .The regulators understand the concerns being raised by community banks and credit unions – they made it clear in their testimony this week and in their actions over the past several months. They have responded by making – or considering – changes to their supervision and regulation of these institutions in a way that lessens their regulatory burden, while at the same time safeguarding safety and soundness and ensuring strong consumer protections.”Brown noted two such proposals that have been recently introduced. One of them is the Privacy Notice Bill, introduced by Senators Heidi Heitkamp (D-North Dakota) and Jerry Moran (R-Kansas), which has 75 co-sponsors. This bill provides an exception to the annual written privacy notice requirement. The other proposal he mentioned, introduced by Brown himself during the last Congress, would allow privately insured credit unions to become members of the Federal Home Loan Bank System and would make it easier for credit unions to make small business loans and improve access to mortgages.While Brown spoke of regulatory relief proposals that had been introduced, at the same time he made it clear that he did not want to do anything that would erode Wall Street reform legislation such as Dodd-Frank.“And I want to reiterate that I am not interested in moving proposals that weaken or roll back Wall Street Reform, or undermine safety and soundness and consumer protection,” Brown said. “But, I think we should act on the proposals that we all agree, after fair consideration, will make a difference for the smallest institutions.” The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News About Author: Brian Honea Share Save  Print This Post The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Related Articles Previous: CFPB Moves Against Three Lenders for Falsely Implying Government Representation Next: DS News Webcast: Friday 2/13/2015center_img Senate Banking Committee Discusses Regulatory Burden on Community Banks, Credit Unions Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Tagged with: Community Banks Credit Unions Regulatory Burdens Senate Banking Committee Sign up for DS News Daily Subscribe The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

The report covers the illegal practices that the Bureau uncovers in areas such as consumer reporting, debt collection, student loan servicing, mortgage origination, mortgage servicing, and fair lending for the first four months of the year.According to the supervisory report, the CFPB found problems with dual-tracking at mortgage servicers that could lead consumers to believe their trial modifications were canceled. They also found a lack of quality control measures in place at consumer reporting agencies. Across all industries, the CFPB supervisory resolutions resulted in the recovery of $11.6 million for over 80,000 consumers.“We are extremely concerned that one year after the CFPB’s mortgage servicing rules went into effect we are still finding runarounds and illegal dual-tracking,” said Richard Cordray, CFPB Director. “Consumers deserve to be treated with honesty and integrity, and our rules require that servicers give borrowers a fair process when they try to save their homes. The CFPB will continue to stand beside consumers to make sure mortgage servicers are following the law.”The CFPB has authority to supervise banks and credit unions with more than $10 billion in assets, and certain nonbanks under the provisions of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act), the report said.When violations of law or other significant problems or weaknesses are pointed out by the CFPB, they reveal these concerns to the institution and outline how to fix the issue. The CFPB will open an investigation for potential enforcement actions, if necessary. All entities are expected to respond to customer complaints and identify major issues and trends that may pose broader risks to their customers under the CFPB.Supervisory Report Findings:Illegal dual-tracking of foreclosures and loss mitigation applications: CFPB examiners reported at least one servicer that foreclosure intent notices to borrowers that were already approved for trial modifications. Dual-tracking such as this makes consumers believe that the servicer cancelled the trial modification. The Bureau also made note of at least one servicer that sent foreclosure notices to borrowers who were current on their loans.Illegal runarounds with loss mitigation applications: When dealing with a homeowner’s loss mitigation application, the servicers must notify the homeowner upon receipt and let them know the exact status of the application, according to new CFPB rules. At least one servicer was illegally requesting additional documents from consumers that had nothing to do with the application.Debt collection complaints disregarded: The report found that at least one debt collector did not record, categorize, or process complaints and inquires. Other collectors failed to review or resolve these complaints and inquiries. Debt collectors also failed to conduct investigations of disputes.Accuracy problems at consumer reporting agencies: Examiners also found accuracy problems at one or more of the credit reporting agencies. These inaccuracies stemmed from issues with information collection and quality control.Fair lending violations: One or more institutions denied or discouraged mortgage applications from consumers that would have used public assistance income to repay the loan. This violates the Equal Credit Opportunity Act.Click here to view the complete CFPB Supervisory Highlights Report.

Do Forbearance Applicants Need Forbearance?

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Do Forbearance Applicants Need Forbearance? Subscribe in Daily Dose, Featured, News, REO  Print This Post According to a survey from LendingTree, most homeowners who have been approved for a mortgage forbearance may not need one. Of the 25% of homeowners surveyed that applied, 80% were approved for a forbearance. However, while the majority of people who applied were approved, only 5% said they wouldn’t have been able to pay their mortgage without forbearance. Another 72% of those who received forbearance reported feeling at least a little guilty about it.Those who applied for forbearance differed along with gender, generational, and income divides. In general, women were less likely to apply for forbearance than men, with 10.2% of women and 37.8% of men surveyed applying because of the coronavirus pandemic. While men were far more likely to apply than women, approval rates between the genders were similar, with 75% of women and 81% of men being approved.Younger homeowners were more likely to apply for a forbearance than older homeowners. About 36% of millennials and 35.1% of Gen Xers applied for forbearance. This is compared with just 3.5% of baby boomers. Of those who applied, 76% of millennials, 87.6% of Gen Xers and 76.9% of baby boomers were approved.Of all the generations, millennials and Gen Xers were more likely to say that they wanted a break from payments. Notably, 71% of respondents from these age groups said they could’ve made their payment but just wanted a pause. An average of only 4.3% of millennials and Gen Xers said they wouldn’t have been able to pay their mortgages without forbearance.While fewer baby boomers applied for forbearance, as older homeowners are more likely to own their homes outright or are closer to paying off their mortgages, those who did were in much greater need. In fact, 20% of baby boomers said they needed forbearance to avoid missing their monthly payment.”Regardless of whether or not you need one, getting a forbearance may still be a good strategy for managing your personal finances,” said Tendayi Kapfidze, VP, Chief Economist, LendingTree. “With uncertainty around how long the COVID-19 crisis will last and how deep its economic impact will be, preserving cash is a priority for many Americans. A mortgage forbearance temporarily removes mortgage payments from the equation. This pause can provide more wiggle room in homeowners’ budgets until the forbearance period ends.” Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Do Forbearance Applicants Need Forbearance?
