Advertising and Marketing Policy Manual
Advertising and marketing your mortgage products and programs are standard business practices. However, there is an ever-increasing risk of Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and/or Federal Trade Commission (FTC) enforcement actions for unfair or deceptive advertising and for violations of the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) and implementing Regulation Z. There are also numerous regulations and agency requirements for mortgage lending advertising activities based on RESPA, S.A.F.E. Act, MARS (Regulation O), MAP rules, Fair Housing Act, HUD-issued guidance, state laws, and other fair-lending regulations.
