CFPB Announces Proposed Amendment to Delay Know Before You Owe Mortgage Disclosure Rule to Oct. 1

Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Richard Corday issued the following statement today on the Know Before You Go Mortgage Disclosure Rule:

“The CFPB will be issuing a proposed amendment to delay the effective date of the Know Before You Owe rule until October 1, 2015. We made this decision to correct an administrative error that we just discovered in meeting the requirements under federal law, which would have delayed the effective date of the rule by two weeks. We further believe that the additional time included in the proposed effective date would better accommodate the interests of the many consumers and providers whose families will be busy with the transition to the new school year at that time.”

The CFPB will be accepting comments on the proposal and a final decision is expected to be made shortly after.
