CFPB RIN: 3170-AA13 Publication ID: 2012 
Title: Loan Originator Compensation (Regulation Z) 
Abstract: The CFPB published for public comment in August 2012 a proposed rule amending Regulation Z (Truth in Lending) to implement amendments to the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) made by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act). The proposal would implement statutory changes made by the Dodd-Frank Act to Regulation Z's current loan originator compensation provisions, including a new additional restriction on the imposition of any upfront discount points, origination points, or fees on consumers under certain circumstances. In addition, the proposal implements additional requirements imposed by the Dodd-Frank Act concerning proper qualification and registration or licensing for loan originators. The proposal also implements Dodd-Frank Act restrictions on mandatory arbitration and the financing of certain credit insurance premiums. Finally, the proposal provides additional guidance and clarification under the existing regulation's provisions restricting loan originator compensation practices, including guidance on the application of those provisions to certain profit-sharing plans and the appropriate analysis of payments to loan originators based on factors that are not terms but that may act as proxies for a transaction's terms. The comment period for the proposed rule ended on October 16, 2012, except that the comment period for that portion of the proposal relating to proposed information collections under the Paperwork Reduction Act closed on November 6, 2012. The CFPB is working to issue a final rule. The CFPB will issue at a later time proposed regulations on anti-steering provisions that TILA section 129B(c)(3) requires the CFPB to adopt.
