The CFPB announced Thursday that it had finalized new measures designed to expand foreclosure protections – but one industry group is already raising red flags

    Such bullshit... While no foreclosure is ever good or wanted by anyone... The bottom line is simple. You signed a CONTRACT that says you agree to pay on the 1st day of the month, period. There is no if, and, or but. I'm sorry you got divorced, lost your job, or had a major medical issue. But how is that the lenders fault.

    Lenders take the risk and need to see a reward for the risk. Once the government steps in and makes these assine rules, you will see, and have already seen a pull back from lenders who simply view the rules and regulations no longer worth the risk.

    Be careful what you ask for Elizabeth Warren and the Democrats.

    Ah yes, the contract. What we now know is nobody signed the contract but us. A legal contract is between 2 parties. Who knew we were going to be sliced and diced? Sold in bits and pieces to various investors. Apply for a refi after the banks have caused a nationwide meltdown. Oh, wait. You are no longer dealing with a bank as you knew a bank to be. The minute you applied for HAMP you became dead meat. Crooks. 10,000,000 households did not stop paying a mortgage. You are either Rick Carver in 99 Homes....or you are brain dead.

    It's not the consumer who they are trying to protect Joe, they are covering their own asses and want lenders to take the cut because they know another FC market is on the way. The Home Ready program is a joke, 12 months from now there will be many FC. They also know that unemployment for all those oil and gas jobs lost last year is coming to an end. People don't have skin in the game (they don't have money) and even if they did it wouldn't make much of a difference if they can't pay due to job loss or can't sell. If you don't have income you can't pay anything no matter what you signed. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to see that first hand some day. Heath issues I can understand but either way borrowers have no reserves for times like those. Most live pay check to pay check. Americans are poor, like you said. I've got a mortgage approved for 110k the realtor called me up and asked me if it was a joke. That's all they qualify for, sorry! Investors know people don't have money that's why you can get over 100%LTV on HARP and 3% down on Fannie, 1% Freddie. UWM has it. Take a look at the guidelines on Home Ready, they do know people don't have money. Every deal on my desk has been very very tight and most who apply do not have the credit or the money.
