Final rule expands definition of small creditor and rural areas
Final rule expands definition of “small creditor” and “rural areas”
Yesterday, we issued a rule that will increase the number of financial institutions that are able to offer certain types of mortgages in rural and underserved areas. The rule also gives small creditors time to adjust their business practices to comply with the new rules.
We will update some of the Title XIV implementation materials on our website to reflect the changes, and will send an email to let you know when we have posted those updates.
