NCSHA Comments to CFPB on TILA Mortgage Servicing Rule

NCSHA supports CFPB’s efforts to increase consumers’ access to comprehensive and timely information about their home loans. However, we believe that the Bureau should also avoid imposing requirements that will overly burden small servicers with fewer resources. This includes not only small private servicers, but also instrumentalities of government (IOGs), including HFAs.

NCSHA Comments to CFPB High-Cost Mortgage Rule

NCSHA shares CFPB’s goals of discouraging inappropriate lending practices and providing robust protections for borrowers who take out high-cost mortgages. However, we believe federal regulations must also ensure that responsible loans are not classified as high-cost. Consequently, we urge you to exempt HFA-financed loans from the application of the high-cost mortgage rule.

NCSHA Comments to HUD on Proposed Voucher Rule

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on HUD’s proposed rule to make conforming changes to the regulations of the Section 8 Tenant-Based Voucher and Section 8 Project-Based Voucher (PBV) programs to reflect the self-executing provisions of the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 (HERA), to amend the regulations required to implement those statutory provisions of HERA that are not self-implementing, and to make other changes to update or clarify regulations.
