Closed Rule

Home Mortgage Consumer Protection


The mortgage crisis showed that some residential mortgage lenders weren’t doing a good job of keeping careful records and communicating with borrowers. Some of this affected all borrowers, but the worst effect was that some people who could have worked out their problems with the right help, lost their homes. Congress has told the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to adopt new federal regulations to avoid this in the future. On this site, you can read about the new proposals, react to them, and discuss them with others. What you say here will make a difference: CFPB is required to consider public comment before making a final decision, and it will get a detailed summary of what Regulation Room commenters have to say.
