Receive Origination Assistance with Contract Exchange Corporation
The Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Bill of 2010 radically changed the mortgage lending market. Some seller financiers are pulled under the purview of this new law and the newly created Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The SAFE Act of 2008 defined a loan originator as anyone who “for compensation or gain takes an application for a closed-end real estate transaction.” Real Estate contracts fall under this broad definition.
If you are someone who makes and negotiates real estate contracts, these laws could apply to YOU!
