Fair Lending - A Quickly Changing Landscape

Regulators armed with political mandate and new data are getting aggressive. Are you ready for them?

Many anticipated that the change in administration combined with the current cultural and political climate would result in a renewed focus on Fair Lending. It appears that future is here and independent mortgage banks will have to do far more than what has been historically expected of them.

Join Ari Karen and Daniella Casseres, attorneys with the Offit Kurman law firm, on Thursday, March 18 at 2pm EST as they discuss new standards, how to set up effective compliance and marketing protocols, and other ways to avoid costly investigations.

During this special briefing, you will learn:

  • New requirements: state and federal changes and enforcement efforts
  • Practical self-assessments: identify problems before they identify you
  • Corrective actions: avoiding cures that create other liabilities
  • The ground floor: what every lender should be doing today
