As of July, the index stands at its highest level since before the Great Recession.Lynn Franco, director of economic indicators at the Conference Board, said the surge was fueled by strong job growth and a brighter short-term outlook for the labor market and personal incomes.”Recent improvements in consumer confidence, in particular expectations, suggest the recent strengthening in growth is likely to continue into the second half of the year,” Franco added.The index component measuring consumers’ feelings about their present situation increased two points to 88.3, the Conference Board reported, while the index gauging future expectations jumped more than six points to 92.7.Looking at recent economic developments, 15.9 percent of consumers surveyed said jobs are plentiful at the moment, though nearly double that percentage maintained that work is still hard to find.Looking ahead, however, Americans were more positive, with a greater share expecting more jobs in the months to come and a smaller number expecting labor to fall—an improvement Federal Reserve leaders might take note of as they sit down this week to decide their next move in monetary policy, says Paul Ashworth, chief U.S. economist for Capital Economics.”The net difference between those two balances shrank to -14.8 in July, from -16.1. That decline strongly suggests that the amount of slack in the labour market really is diminishing quite rapidly, which many Fed officials still aren’t willing to admit,” Ashworth said in a note to clients.

Ohio Senator Urges Regulators to Act Against ‘Zombie Debts’

Brown’s letter urges the regulators to strengthen oversight of debt sale arrangements, which includes information that financial institutions send to debt buyers and consumers and how that information is verified for accuracy. Brown also asked for regulators to consider whether or not financial institutions are prohibited from selling zombie debt to debt collectors.”Everyone should have an accurate credit score and no one should be haunted by debts they don’t owe,” said Brown, Ranking Member of the Senate Banking Committee. “But too many Americans are haunted by zombie debts – debts they’ve already paid but still appear on their credit reports. Credit scores are often used for non-credit purposes, like job decisions and rental housing, compounding the problem. That’s why I’m urging federal regulators to do their part to ensure accurate and timely reporting of consumer debt information. These agencies can and must do more to ensure that buyers and sellers of debt aren’t engaging in behavior that exploits consumers.”Reports have shown that one in five Americans have an error on their credit report that would affect their ability to obtain credit, and debt collection and credit reporting are two of the categories for which the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) receives the most complaints.Brown introduced the Consumer Reporting Fairness Act in mid-July in response to the number of Ohioans affected by JPMorgan Chase agreed earlier in the month to pay $136 million to settle claims that the bank sold inaccurate credit card debt to debt collectors. The new law would not only require creditors to make sure a discharged debt is removed from a consumer’s credit report in an accurate and timely manner, but it would allow the consumer to take legal action against creditors who fail to do so.At the time Brown introduced the bill, he said, “During the financial crisis, more than 50 million people saw their credit scores fall due to foreclosures and financial hardships. Many turned to bankruptcy, but are still haunted by debt on their credit report that they no longer owe. This bill would ensure that debts prior to bankruptcy aren’t in effect double counted and don’t continue to make it difficult for consumers to get a job or secure a loan for a home.”To view a copy of Brown’s letter, click here.center_img Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

The retention rates of scheduled lease expirations remained within Morningstar’s expectations for July, in the mid-70s.”Vacancy rates remain low, though they may migrate higher as more leases expire,” Morningstar said in its report. “Cash flows remain sufficient to cover bond obligations and in general the asset class performance is in line with its recent history.”Included in the report released Monday are the recently-closed CAH 2015-1 transaction (Colony American Homes) and brief summaries of the B2R 2015-1 (B2R Mortgage Trust) and FKL 2015-SFR1 (FirstKey Lending) multiborrower transactions.Click here to see the complete August 2015 Single-Family Rental Research: Performance Summary Covering All Morningstar-Rated Securitizations.

The Property Management Lab at the Five Star Conference on Monday discussed how quality control oversight is increasing, and cities and municipalities are becoming increasingly punitive and because of this it is imperative that the property preservation and field services industry, along with its government and servicing partners, engage in open dialogue about the future of the space.The Lab began with opening remarks from the lab directors, Jason Chapman, Director of Field Services for Fannie Mae, and Jerry Mavellia, CEO of Guardian Asset Management. The event then went into a discussion over pre-foreclosure oversight. Specifically, a panel lead by Todd Pawlinski, VP of Property Preservation for Caliber Home Loans, engaged in dialogue about what distinguishes a zombie property from a property that is vacant and new legislation that impacts the property preservation model. Panelists included Kellie Chambers, AVP Investor Relations for Safeguard Properties, LLC; David Dolan, COO for ZVN Properties; Tracy Hager, Senior Industry Relations Officer for Mortgage Contracting Services; Adrienne Villalobos, First VP of Shared Services for PennyMac; and Jacob Williamson, VP Single-Family Real Estate Fulfillment for Fannie Mae.The Lab then progressed to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development Update lead by Ivery Himes, Director Office of Single-Family Asset Management for HUD. After the update, Brad Phillips, National Field Services Manager for Fannie Mae lead a panel discussion on understanding client core values and lessons learned. Phillips along with panelist Timika Cole, SVP Operations Group Manager for US Bank, and James Taylor, SVP of Asset Management and Property Preservation for Wells Fargo, discussed what they need from their vendors, the importance of understanding core values of a client, how to maximize opportunities with them, and lessons learned during their time in the industry.Following their discussion, Eric Chader, Advisor for HUD, lead a paneled discussion about the changing focus for property preservation. Panelist in this discussion included Darin Decker, VP of Operations for JPMorgan Chase; Robert Klein, Founder & Chairman for Community Blight Solutions; Matt B. Martin, Director of Servicing and Loss Mitigation for HUD; and Ronnie Ory, CEO for Cyprexx Services. The panel went into in-depth conversation about the recent focus on the larger community and the effect pre and post-foreclosure properties have on the area around them and what the industry is doing to show their commitment to the communitites.The lab finished with a paneled discussion on the best way to build a successful network. This panel was led by Chapman, and included Brian Mingham, CEO for National Real Estate Solutions; Dave Sunlin, SVP for Mortgage Contracting Services; Shannon Tomasso, Default Director for PHH Mortgage Corporation, and Sam Tucci, VP of Business Operations for U.S. Best Repair Service.

The Scorecard, which sets expectations for the GSEs, is published annually by the FHFA in furtherance of its objectives to “Maintain,” “Reduce,” and “Build” in its role as conservator of the Enterprises.According to a release from FHFA, the report notes GSE developments regarding access to credit, borrower and community assistance, credit risk transfer programs, reducing taxpayer risk, accomplishments in building a new securitization infrastructure, and diversity and inclusion efforts, among other things.“In collaboration with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, FHFA has made significant progress in meeting our conservatorship objectives,” FHFA Director Melvin L. Watt said. “This report underscores our commitment to transparency as we continue to foster liquidity and efficiency in the housing finance markets, reduce risk to taxpayers and build a new mortgage securitization infrastructure, all in a safe and sound manner.The report breaks down GSE developments according to which objective of FHFA’s conservatorship they fall under. In the “Maintain” category, which includes FHFA’s goals like “maintain[ing] credit availability and foreclosure prevention activities,” the report notes several strategies the GSEs have used to increase credit access to borrowers.These include removing prohibitions on previously restructured loans, improving the automated underwriting systems, encouraging the use of alternative credit scoring models for those who don’t have traditional credit histories, and selling non-performing loans. According to the report, the Enterprises have sold 72,502 non-performing loans since 2014.In efforts to mitigate foreclosures, FHFA’s report noted the GSEs’ enhancements to the Representations and Warranties Framework, the development of rescission relief principles for mortgage insurers, implementation of final HARP strategies, and improved housing counseling programs.Under the “Reduce” objective, which includes the FHFA goal of “reducing taxpayer risk by increasing the role of private capital in the secondary mortgage market,” the report notes the GSEs’ credit risk transfer activity for 2016 and over the lifetime of CRT efforts.“Since the beginning of the program in 2013, the Enterprises have transferred a portion of credit risk on loans with $1.44 trillion in UPB and total RIF of $49 billion,” the report stated. “In 2016, the Enterprises transferred credit risk on single-family mortgage loans with a total UPB of approximately $548 billion and total RIF of about $18.1 billion.”As part of FHFA’s “Build” efforts, which include the goal of building “a new infrastructure for the securitization functions of the Enterprise,” the report notes industry outreach efforts, the Uniform Mortgage Data Program, and updates to the Common Securitization Platform and the Single Security Initiative. Part one of the release was launched in November 2016; part two is scheduled for Q2 2019.FHFA is soliciting input on the Progress Report. All comments can be submitted at FHFA.gov.

Is the CFPB’s Regulatory Power Limited?

first_img About Author: Joey Pizzolato Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Related Articles The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau could potentially run into roadblocks in issuing ramifications for Equifax’s recent data breach of 143 million people, according to a report by Reuters.The article notes that Equifax, one of the three largest credit bureaus in the U.S., must operate under the guidelines of five federal laws, including their use of public data, fair treatment of customers, and statutes under both the Federal Trade Commission and the Department of Justice.But, due to the fact that Equifax isn’t entirely a financial company—they only provide information on consumer’s spending habits for banks to make judgements on credit solvency—many wonder whether or not the CFPB has the power to issue penalties for the breach.The CFPB has taken action on Equifax before, in January, for “deceiving consumers about the usefulness and cost of credit score information,” Sam Gilbert, spokesman for CFPB Reuters. Experts expect that the bureau will use a statute that bars unfair, deceptive, and abusive practices (UDAAP) listed under the Dodd-Frank Act.“Its Dodd-Frank mandate gives the CFPB authority to investigate Equifax even without cyber security rules,” Quyen Truong told Reuters, who is a partner at law firm Stroock & Stroock & Lavan and previously served as assistant director and deputy general counsel for the CFPB.Under Dodd-Frank, the CFPB has the authority to fine companies violating the law up to $1 million per day, as well as demanding specific action or retribution for breaches.You can find the full Reuters article here.
