How the New Government regulations May Impact Your Closing Dates

HERA and HVCC – background information
In 2008, the Home Ownership and Equity Protection Act (HOEPA) and the Housing and Economic Recovery Act (HERA) were passed by Congress, and the Federal Reserve Board published the regulations under the Truth in Lending Act। These regulations were written to provide a more transparent, level and fair regulation of the real estate industry; to add additional steps to help prevent deceptive lending practices; and to protect consumers by making them more informed -and therefore more confident – in their home financing choices. In addition, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac adopted the Home valuation Code of Conduct (HVCC) in 2008 to reinforce appraiser independence, valuation protections, and enhance the overall integrity of the valuation process by promoting the accuracy of appraisals by shielding appraisers from undue influence.
