first_img The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago  Print This Post Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / CFPB Arbitration Rule Faces Opposition Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago In May, the CFPB released its proposed rule that would prohibit mandatory arbitration clauses that the bureau said denies groups of consumers “their day in court.” On August 22, the comment period for the proposal came to an end but that hasn’t stopped organizations against the proposal from speaking out.The American Bankers Association, the Consumer Bankers Association and the Financial Services Roundtable created a 42-page rebuttal for the proposal stating, “The proposed rule does not benefit society or consumers.”The rebuttal continues on saying, “Both lose because, as taxpayers, consumers will have to pay for additional resources needed by courts to accommodate the permanent influx of 6,042 additional class actions every five years. They lose because the cost of defending and settling cases — estimated to be between $2.62 billion and $5.23 billion every five years (100 additional lawsuits each month) — will be passed along to consumers in whole or in part in the form of higher prices or reduced services. Finally, they lose because, in exchange for waiting years to recover an average of $32.35, they lose all of the benefits of arbitration — benefits that the bureau itself touts to its own employees and expressly acknowledges in the proposed rule.”The trio also stated that the CFPB failed to consider alternatives that would address the need for a ban of class action waivers. The groups proposed multiple arguments for why arbitration is much more efficient for both consumers and financial services providers citing it was not needed to protect consumers and was not consistent with the arbitration study results done by the CFPB for Congress.These groups are not the only ones vocalizing their dissatisfaction for the proposal. FreedomWork Foundation also reported that they generated 15,000 responses in objection to the rule. They stated in a recent release that they believe more class action lawsuits will lead to increased costs for all consumers as the sellers of financial products pass on those costs, with only trial lawyers benefiting from this proposal.The CFPB shared in a release on the proposal that arbitration clauses leave consumers to seek relief on their own – usually over small amounts – but with the proposal, these rules would make the individual arbitration process more transparent by requiring companies that use arbitration clauses to submit any claims filed and awards issued in arbitration to the CFPB.“Signing up for a credit card or opening a bank account can often mean signing away your right to take the company to court if things go wrong,” said CFPB Director Richard Cordray. “Many banks and financial companies avoid accountability by putting arbitration clauses in their contracts that block groups of their customers from suing them. Our proposal seeks comment on whether to ban this contract gotcha that effectively denies groups of consumers the right to seek justice and relief for wrongdoing.” Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago August 25, 2016 2,075 Views Sign up for DS News Daily About Author: Kendall Baer Kendall Baer is a Baylor University graduate with a degree in news editorial journalism and a minor in marketing.

But according to an analysis by brokerage firm Redfin, only 25 neighborhoods check all the four boxes across 80 major U.S. markets. The report released by Redfin on Monday found that more than half of the neighborhoods that “have it all” on the list are in the Chicago area, a rare major metro area that has remained relatively affordable and has not been affected by the severe inventory shortage trend seen across the U.S. over the past few years. Neighborhoods in Pittsburgh, Cleveland, San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, and Miami also made the list.These neighborhoods were identified by Redfin on the basis of affordability, home selling speed, highly rated schools, transit, and low crime rates. The report also said that the new tax bill, which caps state and local tax (SALT) deductions at $10,000, compounds affordability concerns especially in high-tax states like Illinois, where 14 of the 25 highlighted neighborhoods are located.“Our general rule of thumb in Chicago is to set aside about 2 percent of the sale price for local taxes each year. These are the same taxes that help the city maintain a world-class transit system and help its schools rank highly. This is one of the reasons why so many Chicago ZIP codes made it to the list,” said Alex Haried, a Redfin agent in Chicago.Dunning in Chicago was ranked first on the basis of this analysis, followed by Ashburn, Chicago. Squirrel Hill, Pittsburg; Jefferson Park, Chicago; and Elmwood Park, Chicago rounded up the top 5 on this list of neighborhoods.Redfin said that Squirrel Hill ranked high due to its access to job centers. “Relocators have really taken kindly to Squirrel Hill not only because of the affordability, but also the commute. Google, Uber and Carnegie Mellon University are large employers in the area and a short commute away via public transit,” said Jennifer Sowers a Redfin agent in Pittsburg.To view the full report and rankings, click here.

Chris Christie, “allows residents participating in certain recovery programs to get a state-sanctioned reprieve” from foreclosures by banks until July 1, 2019. Once the protection expires, residents who have only received building permits recently are likely to be most affected as banks will move in to foreclose those homes.The deadline becomes even more important in the face of legislation that was passed by the state’s assembly in March this year to extend the deadline to 2022. However, the State Senate hasn’t voted on this legislation yet. App., in its report, said that the Senate was likely to deliberate on it this week.”The banks started sending out letters last month,” Jody Stewart of the New Jersey Organizing Project told App. “We have hundreds of people depending on that (law). If they don’t have that they don’t know if they’ll be able to finish their recovery.”According to the latest state report on Hurricane Sandy recovery that was published in April, around 900 residents are still in the process of rebuilding their homes. In the meantime, senators who had originally sponsored the bill to extend the deadline to 2022 are saying that they will get the vote on the extension before the foreclosure protections expire.”Too many New Jersey families are still waiting to move into their homes and on with their lives six years after Sandy, so it’s completely unfair these families have to face the possibility of foreclosure while they are fighting with the bureaucracy to finish repairing their homes,” Sen. Chris Brown, one of the sponsors of the bill told App. in a statement.

Much of the cordon was lifted yesterday, and the final cordon around the Quarry Steps was lifted this afternoon after police said an extensive search had produced nothing to suggest an explosion had take place.In a statement this afternoon, police say they know that a lorry sustained two tyre blow outs in John Street around the time of the initial reports, and this resulted in some damage to windows in the immediate vicinity of the vehicle.However, they say the majority of calls came from the Waterside, and many people they spoke to reported a bomb explosion – one caller stated that debris had fallen on the building of a local business and others said that their windows and houses shook. Police also had to take into account a report of masked men in Dunfield Terrace.Police say they took the necessary steps to thoroughly investigate the reports and keep the public safe, and are paying tribute to residents and business owners directly affected by the investigation.However, they conclude the cause of the reported explosion remains unclear, and unless further information comes to light, they have now exhausted all available lines of enquiry.
