NAFCU’s webcast, “The CFPB’s Qualified Mortgages and Ability-to-Repay Rules Update,” included industry leader speakers Richard J. Andreano, Jr., partner of Ballard Spahr, and Associate Reid F. Herlihy, who both have mortgage lending and consumer finance experience.
Takeaways from the webcast included:

This webcast is part of the CFPB Mortgage Reform Webcast Series to help credit unions through the significant impact of the CFPB mortgage rules. CFPB issued a final rule amending its ability-to-repay and qualified mortgage rule that was originally issued on Jan. 10, 2013. This rule is effective for applications received by a creditor on or after Jan. 10, 2014.
