Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Clarifies the Rules on Compensation to Loan Originators Based on Mortgage Transaction Terms or Conditions under Regulation Z

April 11, 2012

In September 2010, the Federal Reserve Board published final rules to prohibit certain practices related to loan originator compensation with mortgages. These rules, which became effective in April 2011, were issued under the Truth in Lending Act, as implemented by Regulation Z. In July 2011, the general rulemaking authority for most provisions of the Truth in Lending Act transferred to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).
