Rachel Rodman Discusses CFPB Amended Federal Mortgage Servicing Rules on SFA Member Call

July 09, 2021

Cadwalader partner Rachel Rodman joined other industry leaders and members of the Structured Finance Association for a closed call on July 7 to discuss the final rule issued by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) that amends the federal mortgage servicing regulations, Regulation X, to provide temporary protections for borrowers facing COVID-19-related financial hardship.

On the call, Rodman and leaders from the mortgage servicing industry provided an overview of the amendments and discussed key takeaways and considerations for the securitization industry, including supervisory and enforcement implications, compliance, and market impacts. The CFPB’s amendments are intended to support the housing market as it transitions from pandemic-related changes to buttressing the ongoing economic recovery.
