Need to know: Proposed mortgage disclosures

image The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has released the latest version of its proposed loan disclosure forms designed to be “easier for both consumers and lenders to understand and use.”

Your clients will be encountering them, so it’s a good idea to check out what they’ll be seeing so you can answer questions and manage their expectations.
