Big banks have a surprising message for President-elect Donald Trump: Amend Dodd-Frank, but don’t fully repeal it
  • Heath | | 09 Dec 2016, 01:11 PM Agree 0
    They want to keep the mortgage broker comp rules, so they always have the advantage over the mortgage brokers.

    Exactly what Heath said.

    I use to think Regulation was to protect the consumer. I now know the Regulation is to Protect the Oligopolies like the "Big Banks". If we deregulate, the small broker/banker will have less overhead and be a tougher competitor agains the banks. We can then make some $$$

    I hope congress guts it all including the Christmas Wish List:
    1) Dodd Frank
    2) AMC
    3) TRID and the stupid disclosures
    4) LO Comp.
    5) QM

    Just to name a few

    This would be a great start.

    So Santa Trump!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I agree, the Banks want to keep the advantage they have over brokers. It is time for everyone to play by the same rules.

    TRID is disaster.

    The banks love Dodd/Frank & the regulations as they made them more profitable and at the same time put 80% of mortgage brokers (in Massachusetts) out of busness. What's not to like - the Government puts your only compettiton our of business and bails you out with no one going to jail. They do not want to give up the LO Comp rules which put millions in their pockets and out of the broker's accounts.

    Clearly the Dodd-Frank Act was not prepared by anyone who work in the Real Estate Industry. Clients do not understand the paperwork, Attorneys are frustrated by the mountain of paperwork that generally has to be redone several time in order to complete a closing, and we have seen a 30% increase in the fees charges by the closing agents. No one is a winner in the wake of this catastrophe designed to "Protect the Public", the only ones protected are the Bureaucrats' jobs. Repeal this work of senseless government intrusion.

    THEY HAVE BECOME MUCH BIGGER SINCE DODD FRANK AND ARE ONLY LENDING MONEY TO THE ELITE.

    Jamie Dimon, like an idiot, said he'd accept Dodd Frank not because it was good for the industry but because it would make the moat around his bank that much bigger. Lets keep it for him and his cronies on Wall Street ($500 billion in assets) and let the little guys breath again?

    The game continues. Banks love this so it caps all brokers.

    The other comments so far are right on the money.

    All of our closings have about 50-100 compliance emails where everyone has to figure out what they are doing.

    Tennessee says it best. If the big banks can't control themselves then let them keep Dodd Frank but abolish it for the rest of us.

    There is no question that the big banks were behind this. I have been saying this from the start. Amazing how Wells Fargo commits out and out fraud , how no evidence was found proving COUNTRYWIDE did anything wrong after Bank of America stole this company and blamed all this on the brokers. There is no [protection for the consumer. Figure out how much the consumer gets from the CFPB individually. Another black hole that the government has to steal money much like OBAMA had to get 250 billion in cash for Iran. Jamie DImon NEVER liked brokers. Banks still make huge ysp call it what you want . BIG GOVERNMENT INTERFERENCE for the privileged few. Hence what the left doesn't want the CFPB broken up. Interesting how now that economy has shown to be a false one how YELLEN decides we are on the right track. Time to check for jobs YELLEN.
