The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau says it is considering new rules designed to provide more transparency and accountability for consumers when dealing with mortgage servicers. Proposed changes could include borrowers' receiving immediate credit for mortgage payments, quick resolutions to errors in billing or foreclosures and advance notice of interest-rate changes and force-placed insurance policies. A formal proposal is expected this summer with rules completed by January, the CFPB says.
