On August 4, 2016, the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (Bureau) issued a final rule amending certain mortgage servicing rules issued by the Bureau in 2013. The Bureau is now issuing non-binding policy guidance relating to a three-day period of early compliance with the 2016 final rule. Some provisions in the 2016 final rule will take effect on Oct. 19, 2017; the remainder will take effect on April 19, 2018. This non-binding policy guidance addresses early compliance for up to three days preceding each effective date.
