Since new regulations will shape the mortgage market in 2014, we wanted to explore what the impact will be onmortgage rates, mortgage lenders and consumers in what is expected to be a more restrictive lending environment. Specifically, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) Qualified Mortgage Rule (QM) that took effect on Jan. 10, 2014, requires mortgage lenders to fully consider the consumer’s “ability to repay home loans before extending them credit.”
We asked professor Robert S. Sichel, J.D., L.L.M., professor of business law at Kennesaw State University, professor Kemberley Washington, CPA, professor of accounting at Dillard University, and Dr. Ken H. Johnson, Ph.D., faculty director at the Tibor and Shelia Hollo School of Real Estate how the CFPB’s QM rule will affect homeowners and borrowers in 2014. Will these new regulations ultimately protect the consumer?
