To keep the mortgage market from falling, a number of measures have been put in place to ensure that this sector of the economy remains in a very stable state. The best way to achieve this is to monitor the activities of mortgage lenders.
Mortgage lenders have, in part, been blamed for the current woes of the mortgage sector. However, despite the fact that most of the troubles homeowners find themselves in right now can be attributed to the activities of their mortgage lenders, it is the borrower who is facing severe financial problems and cannot make mortgage payments.
In spite of the roles played by the lenders in causing this problem, most of these lenders have turned around to blame the borrower effectively charging the borrower punitive fees for failing to make mortgage payments. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is therefore determined to ensure that lenders are not able to take the rights of borrowers for granted ever again.
If all things go on well, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau plans that as from early next year, a series of regulations it has come out with will be implemented across the length and breadth of the mortgage industry.
The regulation designed by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is meant to protect the interest of mortgage borrowers so that lenders are not in the position to initiate proceedings that will be detrimental to the borrower but reap benefits for the lender.
