Qualified Residential Mortgage and Risk Retention
After nearly three years of deliberations, regulators finalized the Qualified Residential Mortgage (QRM) rule in October, 2014. The final rule includes a broad definition of QRM and aligns it with the Qualified Mortgage standard implemented earlier in 2014. Previously proposed QRM rules imposed high down payment requirements.
After three years of strong opposition from NAR, congressional leaders, and consumer and industry groups, the six financial regulators released the final version of the long-awaited qualified residential mortgage (QRM) rule.
