THE CFPB'S STANCE ON 'KICKBACKS'

CU Digest Looks at the Implications
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) announced enforcement actions in April against four national mortgage insurance companies for allegedly engaging in "kickback" arrangements with mortgage lenders in violation of the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act of 1974 (RESPA).

The CFPB alleges that, in exchange for valuable business referrals from the mortgage lenders, the mortgage insurers purchased reinsurance from subsidiaries of the mortgage lenders (also known as "captive reinsurance arrangements").

The reinsurance was "essentially worthless," according to the CFPB, resulting in millions of dollars in profits to the mortgage lenders.
