SBA - 2nd Request to Postpone New LO Compensation Rules

February 1st, 2011 · No Comments


Jonathan Foxx is the President and Managing Director of Lenders Compliance Group.

Yesterday I notified you about the so-called "small entity compliance guide" issued on January 26, 2011 by the Federal Reserve Board. 

The "Guide" is inadequate, incomplete, and regurgitates most features of the "already known" aspects of the Regulation Z final rule amendments affecting loan officer compensation. 

That rule is scheduled to go into effect on April 1, 2011.

As you may know, I am writing an article on this subject - which will be published in March 2011 in the National Mortgage Professional Magazine - so I am watching this issue pretty closely and have had numerous discussions with industry members, such as compliance counsel, corporate officers, mortgage loan originators, and even a few lobbyists and politicians.

It is now clear to me that FRB’s "Guide" is probably meant to be a response to the January 13, 2011 letter from the SBA’s Office of Advocacy, which expressed concern, among other things, that the "the Federal Reserve has not analyzed properly the full economic impact of the proposal on small entities as required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA)." That is, the "Guide" is a transparent attempt to satisfy a regulatory requirement, though the dubious result adds little to an overall resolution.
