Ohio Foreclosure Law: Federal Laws

Federal Laws


In 2010, the federal government passed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which gave the CFPB the authority to create new mortgage servicing rules. The CFPB’s final mortgage servicing rules were implemented under the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA), also known as Regulation X, and the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) known as Regulation Z. These rules, which went into effect on January 10, 2014, created national mortgage servicing standards and imposed new requirements on lenders and servicers when it comes to foreclosures.
