Today, Wednesday, April 29, 2020, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (Bureau) took steps to make it easier for consumers with urgent financial needs to obtain access to mortgage credit more quickly in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Bureau has issued guidance to address certain stakeholder questions and concerns regarding the impact of COVID-19 on the mortgage origination process. The Bureau’s latest COVID-19 guidance addresses several items, including:

  • TRID (TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosures) three-day waiting period requirements
  • Regulation Z consumer recession rights
  • ECOA and Regulation B appraisal and written valuation requirements
