The CFPB adopted an overwhelming volume of changes to the mortgage servicing rules, effective October 19, 2017, and April 19, 2018. The most important changes relate to default and collection restrictions, successors in interest, mortgage foreclosures, and bankruptcy protections. This session will thoroughly explain the new changes to the mortgage servicing rules. It also will address early intervention, continuity of contact and loss mitigation procedures, and explain when small servicers are exempt.
