Insight: CFPB's inaction harms consumers……again

The CFPB's charge from Congress, as set forth in the Dodd-Frank Act, which was passed in 2010, is to protect consumers in the financial services area. In 2014, the CFPB issued over 1000 pages of rules primarily intended to assist borrowers who are delinquent on their mortgage loans. Many of the rules have been beneficial because they have assisted delinquent borrowers in obtaining more specific information about the amount they owe, and they have created standardization and uniformity among mortgage servicers and investors in the area of loss mitigation and loan workouts; however, if the CFPB genuinely wants to assist delinquent borrowers avoid foreclosure, it still has a very long way to go.

I wrote last month about how certain provisions of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (the “FDCPA”) actually make it more difficult for borrowers to reinstate their delinquent loans. The CFPB is the regulator charged with implementing rules and guidance with respect to federal consumer finance statutes, such as the FDCPA. The CFPB was established 7 years ago but for some inexplicable reason, it has chosen not to take action to resolve the harm suffered by consumers as a result of the FDCPA. Last month's article discussed how particular provisions of the FDCPA make it more difficult for borrowers to obtain meaningful reinstatement and payoff quotes, and ultimately bring their loans current and avoid foreclosure. The purpose of this article is to highlight other harm to mortgage consumers as a result of the FDCPA.

The Car Was Repossessed, but the Debt Remains

More than a decade after Yvette Harris’s 1997 Mitsubishi was repossessed, she is still paying off her car loan.

She has no choice. Her auto lender took her to court and won the right to seize a portion of her income to cover her debt. The lender has so far been able to garnish $4,133 from her paychecks — a drain that at one point forced Ms. Harris, a single mother who lives in the Bronx, to go on public assistance to support her two sons.

“How am I still paying for a car I don’t have?” she asked.

For millions of Americans like Ms. Harris who have shaky credit and had to turn to subprime auto loans with high interest rates and hefty fees to buy a car, there is no getting out.

When should I start looking for a house?

My apartment lease ends 5/31/2010 and my wife and I want to buy a house, I was wondering when would be a good time to start looking.

The advice you have been given is good: first find a lender/broker who you trust and will find you the best possible rate. If this is your first home, talk to many brokers and make sure you are comfortable with every aspect of the process.
