State Mortgage Regulators Release Mortgage Loan Originator Compensation Guidelines
WASHINGTON, D.C. - October 17, 2011 - (RealEstateRama) -- The Multi-State Mortgage Committee (MMC), a ten-state representative body created by the Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS) and the American Association of Residential Mortgage Regulators (AARMR), has issued examiner guidelines as a tool for consistent implementation of the Federal Reserve Board’s final rules for closed-end credit under Regulation Z. The rule introduced loan originator compensation restrictions to protect consumers against the unfairness, deception, and abuse that can arise with certain loan origination compensation practices. The rule generally prohibits payments to loan originators based on loan terms and conditions, dual compensation to originators by consumers and any other person, and “steering” consumers to loans to receive greater compensation.
