The New Ability-to-Repay and QM Rule: An In-Depth Look at the Issues

Webinar: ID# 1012077
Recorded CD or On-Demand
About This Course:
Of the many new rules the CFPB finalized this past January, among the most complex is the ability-to-repay and Qualified Mortgage (QM) rule. This rule alone will have dramatic implications for the mortgage marketplace and will impact the product-level decisions for every consumer mortgage lender in the country. How will your institution react? There are many decisions to be made.

In this webinar we'll discuss the precise requirements of the lender's duty to evaluate the consumer's ability to repay, including how to evaluate precisely what factors in the process. As well, we'll talk about the various types of Qualified Mortgages, or QMs, and what those definitions mean. There are differing legal standards for the different types, and understanding the implications involved is a critical strategic step your institution must take.

We'll also discuss what could happen if there are problems - it's not just the examiners you have to worry about here. There are significant legal risks that could halt the foreclosure process in its tracks, which could put a financial strain on your institution if things don't go smoothly.

We'll go in-depth on the details of the rule, its application, and the specific requirement to provide you a thorough understanding of what is required, along with the consequences.
