Home mortgage lending is heavily regulated by federal laws. Is this a result of congressional pandering to consumer groups, or are there good reasons why home mortgage lending should be regulated more than, say, automobile financing
Free
Essay
Answer:

Answer:

Regulation of home mortgage lending :
The regulation of home mortgage lending has many good reasons for having more regulation than automobile financing. Some include:
• Most homes are financed at a greater amount and are the single largest purchase than any typical borrow will make.
• The time to repay a home loan is generally much longer than for a car loan.
• In the deed of title transfer mortgages must have detailed descriptions, photos, etc. to define the property transferred. In most cases a VIN number, make, model and year is all that is required for automobile title transfer.
• Mortgage loans are more complicated than car loans and expose borrowers to more risk from unscrupulous lenders.
• Mortgage borrowers can enjoy protection from discrimination. The home is fairly stationary whereas the automobile is not.
• Buying a home is more difficult to undo than an automobile purchase.

Residential mortgage terms (mortgage notes) have become increasingly uniform as the mortgage market has become more national and efficient. Is there any downside to this for the homeowner
Free
Essay
Answer:

Answer:

The increased uniformity of mortgage terms reduces the opportunity for customization of terms based on a homeowner's unique situation and characteristics. However, the standardization of the mortgage process has allowed the borrower to reap the benefits of reduced costs associated with the lending process as well as reduced delays. Furthermore, the standardization of the mortgage process has been accompanied by the introduction of more laws to protect consumers' rights.
