Legal Issues and Regulatory Compliance

The mortgage industry is heavily regulated and compliance demands profoundly affect companies' business operations. Information on this page includes links to materials to help MBA members understand and comply with the many laws, regulations and policies affecting them, including the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA), Truth in Lending Act (TILA), Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) as amended by Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA), Fair Housing Act, Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA), Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) and the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). To better navigate these requirements, MBA members also may utilize MBA web site resource centers and join an ongoing Legal Issues and Regulatory Compliance Committee with regular calls and conferences.
