Any junk fees to worry about on the loan side?

Answered by: 

I keep hearing about junk fees everywhere. I work on the loan side, though, and it seems like everything is on the deposit side. Is there anything I need to be aware of for loan fees?

YES! In addition to the Credit Card Late Fee cap of $8, the CFPB has now turned their sights to loan closing costs associated with mortgage borrowing. They have specifically called out discount points, as well as fixed costs like lender’s title insurance and credit report fees. They are seeking to determine how a lack of competition and choice adds to rising housing costs, especially for fees in which the borrower “does not benefit” from the service. (For example, citing lender’s title insurance which benefits the creditor at the borrower’s expense.)
