The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) proposed two notices containing rules to protect homeowners from surprises and costly mistakes by their mortgage servicers. The first set of proposed rules would provide consumers with clear and timely information about their mortgages so they can avoid costly surprises by providing clear monthly mortgage statements, earlier disclosures of interest rate adjustments, and options to help borrowers avoid foreclosures and costly force-placed insurance.
