Legislative and Regulatory Developments In the Residential Mortgage Lending Market

As the number of mortgage foreclosures rise and adjustable rate mortgage loans reset at higher interest rates, Congress, the Federal Banking Agencies and mortgage market participants continue to look for ways to assist borrowers currently facing foreclosure and prevent future problems in the residential mortgage market. The Housing Bill and the Federal Reserve Board's recent rulemaking address some of the current concerns but may raise new questions for mortgage market participants.

Join us as this month's teleconference focuses on the latest legislative and regulatory developments in residential mortgage lending and the residential mortgage markets.

Topics to be addressed include:

  • The impact of the Housing Bill on mortgage lenders, brokers, servicers and investors
  • Federal Reserve Board's HOEPA rulemaking
