NAMB Applauds CFPB Announcement on TRID Enforcement

NAMB—The Association of Mortgage Professionals, has tirelessly advocated for a delay in the Aug. 1, TRID enforcement deadlines. A disruption of the homebuying process during one of the busiest times of the home purchasing cycle would hurt consumers, mortgage professionals, and the U.S. economy. NAMB has learned that requests by fellow housing industry leaders have been heard and the CFPB is now willing to be sensitive to industry concerns. 

"We very much appreciate the acknowledgement by Director Cordray that the Aug. 1 deadline is problematic and encourage him to take the definitive step of granting a "bright line, hold harmless period" for the mortgage industry while his agency determines whether their regulatory scheme is, in fact, workable," said John Councilman, president of NAMB.  

On June 3, 2015, Director Cordray sent a letter to Congress explaining that the CFPB and other regulators "will be sensitive to the progress made by those entities that have squarely focused on making good-faith efforts to come into compliance with the rule in time".
