AllRegs Launches Consumer Complaint Policy Manual
Jul 17, 2014

The Dodd-Frank Act provides authority to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to prevent financial harm to consumers. One of the CFPB’s strategies to accomplish this goal is to handle complaints and inquiries regarding challenges that consumers face in the financial marketplace, including mortgage products and services. The CFPB monitors and shares the complaint data it collects with other regulators for investigation and enforcement of consumer protection laws. Are you looking for a source to guide development of your company’s consumer complaint process? The AllRegs Consumer Complaint Policy Manual is designed to aid mortgage brokers, lenders and originators in the development of a consumer complaint process.
