NCUA. Chairman Rodney Hood put out a letter to credit unions Tuesday to urge them to notify mortgage borrowers that they can forego waiting periods. This letter serves as a follow-up to an interpretive rule issued last week relating to “waivers of required waiting periods under the TRID rule and the Regulation Z right of rescission rule.” The previous New York Minute article regarding CFPB’s interpretive ruling can be accessed by clicking here.
