The Consumer Law Section of the Oregon State Bar is sponsoring a half-day CLE for attorneys, housing counselors, and foreclosure mediators who want to learn about the new federal mortgage servicing rules that went into effect on January 10. According to the CFPB, the rules “establish new, strong protections for struggling homeowners, including those facing foreclosure” and “protect mortgage borrowers from costly surprises and runarounds by their servicers.”
The CLE will be presented by Cathy Mansfield, a policy analyst for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and a professor at Georgetown Law. Mansfield with also lead a Q&A session with a local panel of experts, including Simon Whang of the Oregon Department of Justice and local consumer attorneys Hope Del Carlo and Kelly Harpster.
