Cordray: QM Rule Should not Always Apply

Responding to what are perceived as carved-in-stone strictures, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) director Richard Cordray says regardless of the agency’s QM Rule with its highly-defined rules, lenders should feel safe originating loans that have exhibited strong performance over time, as nationalmortgagenews tells MHProNews. Noting community banks and credit unions have long made good loans, in a speech to the National Association of Realtors (NAR) he says, “Nothing about their traditional lending model has changed, and they should continue to offer such mortgages to borrowers whom they evaluate as posing reasonable credit risk—whether or not they meet the criteria to be classified as qualified mortgages.”
