Proposed Bill R-1366 will put mortgage brokers out of business!

Mortgage and Lending with National Credit Fixers - Matt Listro

Did you know that there is a proposed bill that would put mortgage brokers out of business?

Regulation Z - [R-1366] is that bill.

R-1366 eliminates consumer choices by eliminating Yield Spread Premiums which would not allow mortgage brokers to offer consumers zero point or reduced fee loans. The banks will not be effected by this new law and would still be able to offer consumers zero point loans and reduced closing cost loans.  The competitive disadvantage could put mortgage brokers out of business.

I believe this is just another big bank ploy to eliminate a sizable amount of their competition.  Can you say --> End to competition?  Whatever happened to Democracy, free trade, and competition?  The government is putting is regulatory hand into everything!

R-1366 is in the Comment stage until 12-24-09 (Merry Christmas) and failure to take five minutes, right now, to make your feelings known could put you out of business or, as Realtors, will seriously limit you client's financing options

Matt, I'll have to look into this.  But you are correct as many banks have not been allowing mortgage brokers to sell their products lately.
