Stay Updated on the CFPB Rules That Will Have an Impact on Your Bankruptcy Firm

Major revisions to the mortgage servicing regulations, made by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, will become effective in 2017 and early 2018. These changes deal with a variety of important issues, including servicing transfers, loan modification applications, and loss mitigation requests from successors in interest.  Most important for bankruptcy attorneys are the new regulations requiring monthly statements to be given to debtors in bankruptcy.  Learn how these new rules can be used in your bankruptcy practice.
