We are proud of the ongoing relationship and work we do with the department on behalf of our members and are pleased to announce that the Department has officially released these comprehensive guidebooks that will help companies & individuals to not only apply for a license, but to maintain a license.  These guidebooks provide an overview of the regulatory requirements and boils them down into comprehensible directions on what information to file with DFS, at what times, and what licensees and registrants are and are not permitted to do as a regulated entity.

    Please be sure to watch for any additional e-notices from NYAMB for updates to these books that may become available as a result of any new or revised mortgage-related federal and state laws and regulations, and Department policies and procedures that may come into effect.

    CFPB Proposes Expanded Foreclosure Protections

    WASHINGTON, D.C. undefined Today, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) proposed additional measures to ensure that homeowners and struggling borrowers are treated fairly by mortgage servicers. The proposal would require servicers to provide certain borrowers with foreclosure protections more than once over the life of the loan, to put in place additional servicing transfer protections, and to take steps to protect borrowers from a wrongful foreclosure sale. The proposal would also help ensure that surviving family members and others who inherit or receive property have the same protections under the CFPB’s mortgage servicing rules as the original borrower.
