Small-creditor asset threshold for escrow exemption adjusted

The CFPB has published in today's Federal Register a final rule making an inflation adjustment to the asset-size threshold for certain creditors to qualify for an exemption from the requirement to establish an escrow account for a higher-priced mortgage loan under section 1026.35 of Regulation Z. The threshold is adjusted, effective January 1, 2021, to $2.230 billion from $2.202 billion. Therefore, creditors with assets of less than $2.230 billion (including assets of certain affiliates) as of December 31, 2020, will be exempt, if other requirements of section 1026.35(b)(2)(iii) of Regulation Z are also met, from establishing escrow accounts for higher-priced mortgage loans in 2021. The change is effective January 1, 2021.

The BankersOnline Regulations page for Regulation Z § 1026.35 and its Official Interpretations has been updated, noting and correcting an error in the published rule.
