Scaffolding Boards Tue, 27 Sep 2022 19:17:38 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Scaffolding Boards 32 32 Odd bedfellows petition CFPB to introduce larger personal loan participant rule Tue, 27 Sep 2022 19:17:38 +0000

The Center for Responsible Lending (CRL) and the Consumer Bankers Association (CBA) have submitted a joint petition to the CFPB asking the Governing Board to participate in rulemaking to define larger participants in the personal lending market. In February 2022, the CFPB introduced a new process for members of the public to petition rulemaking (including changing or repealing existing rules). the petition was put on record from the CFPB. Under the CFPB’s new procedure, petitions submitted will receive a final response from the CFPB. (The CBA previously sent a letter to then-new director Chopra in October 2021, urging the CFPB to introduce a larger participant rule for fintech consumer lenders.)

In their petition, the CRL and CBA describe the consumer credit market as consisting of five segments: mortgages (including home equity loans and HELOCs), credit cards, auto loans, student loans and “other personal loans.” They describe the “other personal loans” category as including three types of loans, which can be secured (other than real estate interests) or unsecured: short-term installment loans (typically with maturities of three months to one year), longer-term Loans and Revolving Credit Lines. Secured loans in this category include loans to finance the purchase of durable goods (e.g. appliances or mobile homes) and loans secured by a security interest in the borrower’s existing property (e.g. a vehicle).

The CRL and CBA note that the Bureau announced in its 2015 regulatory agenda that it expects to develop a proposed rule to define major non-bank participants in the personal loan market, including consumer installment loans and auto title loans, and reported on it in its Spring Regulatory Agenda 2017 that they are working on developing such a rule. However, as they also note, the Bureau under former Acting Director Mulvaney classified rulemaking as inactive in its Spring 2018 regulatory agenda and has not commented on the issue since.

Reasons set out in the petition why the Bureau should resume rulemaking more broadly include:

  • A rapidly growing personal installment loan market, also due to changes in state laws effectively banning payday loans;
  • A significant portion of consumers who take out other personal loans, particularly consumers who receive such loans from non-banks, tend to be economically vulnerable consumers who either cannot obtain credit through a credit card or HELOC, have exhausted their available credit, or incurred so much debt have that they need a credit card or HELOC refinance;
  • Significant growth in fintechs targeting the subprime market and offering loans that consumers find difficult to repay;
  • The current regulatory regime creates an unlevel playing field for banks regulated by the CFPB and a significant risk that consumer protection issues affecting vulnerable consumers will go undetected; and
  • Risk-based supervision is not an adequate substitute for a large participant rule in a market with a significant number of large participants due to the need for company-specific insights.

In their petition, the CRL and CBA recommend defining the personal loan market as follows:

Originating or servicing closed or perpetual lines of credit, payable in more than one installment, granted to consumers for personal, family, or household purposes, except for loans secured by real estate, post-secondary education loans as defined in 12 CFR 1090.106 (a ) or auto purchase or refinance loans as defined in 12 CFR 1090.108(a).

Referring to their recommendation that the Governing Board cover both closed installment loans and perpetual lines of credit, the CRL and CBA state that “there is an ongoing debate as to whether [buy-now-pay-later (BNPL)] Loans are closed loans or perpetual lines of credit” and claim that “[g]Consolidating closed and open loans into the definition of a single retail lending market will avoid potential inconsistencies in terms of bureau oversight and potential uncertainties over coverage of BNPL loans.”

Regarding their recommendation to define the market to cover both origination and servicing of personal loans, the CRL and CBA point to partnerships between banks and fintechs. They call the claim that the bank is the true lender in such partnerships “controversial,” arguing that it is clear that the non-bank partner is an insured person who, in its role as a credit servicer, sells a financial product or provides a service to consumers. According to the CRL and CBA, defining the market to cover servicing and origination “will ensure that if these non-custodial fintechs are large enough to meet the larger participant threshold, they will be subject to Bureau oversight, at least in relation to on its servicing activities, including its activities in billing, collection and provision of data to consumer reporting points.”

In August 2022, eight national trade groups submitted a petition to the CFPB asking the Governing Board to participate in rulemaking to define larger participants in the data aggregation services market.

]]> Developer Meets Most Design Standards of Proposed Levy Crossing, Some Board Members Say | Local News Mon, 26 Sep 2022 23:00:00 +0000

After a developer told city officials that many of Killeen’s architectural and design standards would be met in the construction of hundreds of homes near South Fort Hood Street, they felt comfortable recommending to accede to the company’s request to reduce recoil requirements.

“The agreement we have reached is that they mostly – but not completely – meet our architectural standards,” City Manager Kent Cagle said Monday. “They have reduced the number of homes for which they are requesting withdrawal changes. It reduces setback requirements for 246 lots. Originally it was 386 lots and they reduced it to 246 lots.

Explosion of Garland’s house: two children remain hospitalized Mon, 26 Sep 2022 02:42:00 +0000 It’s been six weeks since a house exploded in Garland with six family members inside. Two children remain hospitalized.

GARLAND, Texas — Sunday marked exactly six weeks since Gloria Godinez received the frantic calls that her family’s home had exploded with six of her loved ones inside.

“I could hear little explosions in the background,” Godinez said.

His mother, Paula Reyes, 54, died hours later. Her 15-year-old brother, Angel Reyes, died in hospital three days later.

“I stayed with him,” Godinez said. “I never left him.”

Godinez’s sisters, Angelica and Lupita, and nephews, Anthony and Josh, were hospitalized for weeks to recover.

About a week ago, the family finally received some good news.

Angelica and Lupita have been released.

“Their wounds are healing. They are on the right track,” Godinez said.

She needs to help with their burns and they need to get checked out, but Godinez said the progress is undeniable.

“I always tell them, ‘Oh, you’re progressing,'” Godinez said. “At first they walked like very old people, and now they stand straight.”

A few days ago, the family received even more good news.

The two nephews are responsive.

“They’re both tough kids. They’re very brave,” Godinez said.

As the family continues to heal, they are also forced to rebuild. The house that was destroyed was the house of Godinez’s sister.

“They just have to rebuild from scratch. They have nothing,” Godinez said. “Someone gave them their first pair of shoes, and they were like, ‘Our first pair of shoes!’ Another family member has already offered them their bed, and they were so moved.”

Godinez said his family is grateful to the healthcare professionals at Parkland and Medical City Plano, as well as the neighbors who stepped up that Sunday six weeks ago.

“It could have been worse,” Godinez said. “It’s a tragedy, but it could have been a bigger tragedy. I could have lost them all.”

A GoFundMe was set up for the family.

How a fashion designer duo became home improvement experts Sat, 24 Sep 2022 16:32:47 +0000

Like many of us trapped at home during quarantine, Oliver and Bessie Afnaim Corral, the co-founders of fashion label Arjé, decided to use their extra time to tackle a few DIY projects. In their case, it was an ambitious undertaking to remodel their 2,000-foot duplex apartment in New York without the help of any contractors except an electrician for the light fixtures. “We were watching YouTube videos and learning by doing,” says Corral. “I knew how to build a plaster wall, but we wanted to approach our house as an artistic project.” The result is a dramatic, light-filled space awash in soothing neutrals that now serves as a showroom for the brand’s expansion into interior design and furniture.

Creating living spaces is not completely foreign to the duo. Arjé, which is best known for its durable sheepskin jackets, had pop-up stores in New York and Los Angeles that were built to feel like home, with coffee and wine served while customers do their shopping. shopping and an open invitation to lie down on the furniture. So it was a natural extension for the couple to fully immerse themselves in interior design. “We had three successful years selling clothes, but we felt this desire to be a lifestyle in its own right,” says Afnaim Corral. The move from clothes to interiors may have always been part of a bigger plan for the couple, but that doesn’t mean they were completely without anxiety about the new direction. “When you have butterflies, you know you’re getting closer to your dream,” continues Afnaim Corral. “At the height of the pandemic, we looked at each other and said: we just have to do this. Our hearts knew something was missing. And so they took the leap.

First, the wall that separated their kitchen and dining room was knocked down and transformed into an arched opening, ideal for creating flow for guests when entertaining. Another impressive project Corral has done is the custom wall behind their dining table that required multiple trips to Home Depot for wood dowels cut to size and attached piece by piece. “Oli was able to do things, and I was the boring customer,” laughs Afnaim Corral.

Husband and wife designer duo Oliver Corral and Bessie Afnaim Corral.

As well as transforming the layout of their living space, the couple also designed five bespoke pieces of furniture – what they like to call the basic staples of any home – a coffee table, a dining table, a sofa, an armchair and an ottoman that are made to measure. -ordered and built in Rochester, New York. These last two articles are their greatest hits. “The chair and ottoman are our star products because interior designers and clients request and request them in custom fabrics,” says Afnaim Corral. There are plans to expand the range, with pieces that complement the existing design.

To complete their lifestyle concept, the two have ensured that everything from artwork to rugs to plates and even magazines and books from their home showroom are available at home. ‘purchase. “Oli curates most of what you see, so we really love and believe in everything. We work with artisans that we know personally,” she explains. “Everything is a closed loop of production done in small batches. Here you’ll find textiles co-designed with Nordic Knots, tableware by Japanese brand Kinto, handmade pitchers by Barcelona ceramist Marta Bonilla and surreal glassware by New Yorker Grace Whiteside. interested in seeing all of these pieces in person, private shopping appointments are available to tour their home, sit on the furniture, touch the decorative items, and most importantly, interact with the couple.

This level of thought and attention to detail informs their plans for the future. The duo don’t want to fall victim to the relentless and exhausting schedule that forces fashion designers to burn themselves out. “We are not rushing. We want to do less with the intention of lasting longer,” says Afnaim Corral. “As the saying goes, slow and steady wins the race.”

Fiona is rolling over northeastern Canada as a big, powerful storm Sat, 24 Sep 2022 03:20:03 +0000

CAGUAS, Puerto Rico – Hurricane Fiona turned into a post-tropical cyclone on Friday evening, but meteorologists warned it could still bring hurricane-force winds, heavy rains and large waves to the region of Canada Atlantic and could be one of the most severe storms in the country’s history.

Fiona, which started the day as a Category 4 storm but weakened to Category 2 strength late Friday, is expected to make landfall in Nova Scotia early Saturday.

The Canadian Hurricane Center has issued a hurricane watch for large stretches of coastline in Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland. The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Fiona is expected to reach the region as a “large, powerful post-tropical cyclone with hurricane-force winds.”

“This will definitely be one of, if not the strongest, tropical cyclone to affect our part of the country,” said Ian Hubbard, a meteorologist with the Canadian Hurricane Center in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. “It’s definitely going to be as bad and as bad as anything I’ve seen.”

Fiona was a Category 4 hurricane when it hit Bermuda with heavy rain and winds earlier on Friday as it swept across the island on a track heading into northeast Canada.

Authorities in Bermuda opened shelters and closed schools and offices ahead of Fiona. National Security Minister Michael Weeks said no major damage was reported.

The US center said Fiona had maximum sustained winds of 105 mph (165 km/h) on Friday evening. It was centered about 140 miles (220 kilometers) southeast of Halifax, Nova Scotia, heading north at 46 mph (74 kph).

Hurricane-force winds extended outward 185 miles (295 kilometers) from the center and tropical storm-force winds extended outward 345 miles (555 kilometers).

Hubbard said the storm was weakening as it moved over cooler waters and he estimated it highly unlikely to make landfall with hurricane force. Hurricanes in Canada are quite rare, in part because once the storms reach colder waters, they lose their main source of energy. and become extratropical. But these cyclones can still have hurricane-force winds, but with a cold core instead of a warm core and no eye visible. Their shape can also be different. They lose their symmetrical shape and may look more like a comma.

Bob Robichaud, warning preparedness meteorologist for the Canadian Hurricane Center, said the center of the storm was expected to arrive in Nova Scotia on Saturday morning, but its winds and rains would arrive late Friday.

“This is going to get ugly,” said Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. “We of course hope there won’t be much to do, but we think there probably will be. And we’ll be here for that. In the meantime, we encourage everyone to stay safe and to listen to instructions from local authorities and hang in there for the next 24 hours.”

Prince Edward Island officials have sent out an emergency alert reporting severe flooding along the province’s north coast. “Immediate efforts should be made to protect property. Avoid shorelines, waves are extremely dangerous. Residents of these areas should be prepared to relocate if necessary,” the alert reads.

Nova Scotia authorities have sent an emergency alert to phones warning of Fiona’s arrival and urging people to say inside, avoid the shore, charge devices and have enough supplies to at least 72 hours. Officials warned of prolonged power outages, wind damage to trees and structures, coastal flooding and possible road washouts.

A hurricane warning was in effect for Nova Scotia from Hubbards to Brule; Prince Edward Island; Isle-de-la-Madeleine; and Newfoundland from Parson’s Pond to Francois.

So far, Fiona has been charged with at least five deaths – two in Puerto Rico, two in the Dominican Republic and one on the French island of Guadeloupe.

People across Atlantic Canada were stocking up on last-minute essentials and protecting their properties from storms on Friday before arrival.

At the Samsons Enterprises shipyard in the small Acadian community of Petit-de-Grat on Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia, Jordan David was helping his friend Kyle Boudreau moor Boudreau’s lobster boat “Bad Influence” in the hope that it would not be lifted and broken by the winds.

“All we can do is hope for the best and prepare as best we can. There is something coming, and how much is yet to be determined,” David said, dressed in his waterproof gear. outside.

Kyle Boudreau said he was worried. “It’s our livelihood. Our boats are breaking, our traps are breaking…these are things you don’t need to start your season next year,” he said.

Aidan Sampson said he worked 11-hour days in his father-in-law’s shipyard last week, lifting fishing boats out of the water.

Meanwhile, the National Hurricane Center said New Tropical Storm Ian in the Caribbean is expected to continue to strengthen and hit Cuba early Tuesday like a hurricane and then hit southern Florida early Wednesday.

It was centered about 385 miles (625 kilometers) southeast of Kingston, Jamaica on Friday evening. It had maximum sustained winds of 40 mph (65 km/h) and was moving west-northwest at 12 mph (19 km/h). A hurricane watch has been issued for the Cayman Islands.

Before reaching Bermuda, Fiona caused severe flooding and devastation in Puerto Rico, leading US President Joe Biden to declare on Thursday that the full force of the federal government stands ready to help the US territory recover.

Governor Pedro Pierluisi of Puerto Rico activated the National Guard to help distribute diesel fuel to hospitals and supermarkets. The force also provides generators used to run drinking water plants and telecommunications towers. Hundreds of people remained isolated by blocked roads.

What is Cloud on Title? Fri, 23 Sep 2022 18:30:23 +0000

In any transaction involving a home, the title is an integral part of the process. The title deed serves to verify who is the legal owner of the house. Although you can also be listed on the deed, the title is what matters most in determining ownership and your right to act with the home, whether you want to sell later, borrow against it, or leave it to rest. your heirs. .

The title comes into play in particular when buying a house. Before the transaction can be concluded, the current owner must prove that he legally owns the house and has the right to sell (or rent) it. If the seller has unresolved title issues – specifically, what is known as a title cloud – the closing can get messy; it could hamper your ability to buy the house.

A title cloud, also known as a title defect, defective title, or cloudy title, is anything that interferes with a person or entity transferring title to another party. This means there is an unresolved issue with the property that casts doubt on the current owner’s ability to sell it. It can be anything from unpaid property taxes to claiming an heir.

Typically, you discover an existing title cloud during a title search, which is usually done as a condition of a home sale. Essentially, the title search gives you a way to make sure there are no defects in title so that when it passes to you, you have full, unencumbered ownership of the property.

The scrambled title could be caused by anything that would question the ownership of the property. More often than not, you’ll see a cloud on the title due to overdue or underpayments on a mortgage. In this case, the mortgage lender puts a lien on the property. The seller (or buyer, in some cases) will need to arrange to update the loan in order to obtain release of the mortgage lien.

Discount rate overview

Technically speaking, any outstanding mortgage is a lien and gives the lender an interest in a property. But as long as payments are up to date, a mortgage doesn’t really obscure a title — or prevent a home from being sold (since the assumption is that the seller will repay the loan at closing).

Although a mortgage lien is a common cause, it is not the only way a title can be obscured.

For example, the cloud can be caused by the current owner owing money to someone else: an unpaid debt to a tax authority, general contractor, or other third party. When debts are not paid, some entities have the ability to put a lien on the property. This essentially forces the current owner to pay what they owe to sell the property – or find a buyer willing to shoulder that financial burden to get the title released freely and clearly.

The second common cause of title clouds can stem from paperwork issues. If a married couple bought the property together and then divorced, the ex-spouse’s name may still be on the deed. This could leave the spouse who still currently lives in the house without the full legal right to sell it. No matter how many solutions are available in your state to solve this problem, it can still significantly complicate the sales process.

You may also experience title flaws due to writing issues. With an unpublished trust deed, the proper land registration authority has not been notified that a mortgage has been paid off in full. In other words, you could experience a mortgage lien cloud simply because the proper paperwork has not been filed to show that the loan is no longer outstanding.

You may see a cloud on the title due to:

  • A mortgage lien
  • A tax privilege
  • Property Foreclosure Proceedings
  • Administrative issues, such as an unpublished trust deed
  • Boundary issues, including encroachments and easements
  • Probate issues, if the property was inherited or passed on as part of an estate
  • A mechanic’s lien, placed by the contractor on the property because the owner was unable to pay for something involved in building or renovating the home (usually building materials or labor -work)
  • Fraud, which can occur if a forged deed has been recorded (for example, putting the title in another person’s name)

A title defect does not necessarily mean that the sale of the house fails, but it does require action. Although the available options may vary by state, the current title holder generally has a few options:

  • Arrange for the lien to be lifted by repaying the unpaid debt. If the cloud is from a mortgage lien, mechanic’s lien, or other unpaid debt, you can usually clear the title by paying off the debt and ensuring the proper paperwork is filed to clear the default. title. In some cases, such as with a tax lien, the seller can clear the title by using a portion of the sale proceeds to pay the unpaid tax bill. Depending on the buyer’s level of interest, repayment of the outstanding debt(s) may be part of the sale negotiation.
  • Erase the lien or charge. If the default stems from a clerical issue such as an unpublished trust deed, filing the appropriate documents to clarify what is causing the cloud may be the only remedy needed.
  • Adjust the selling price. If the above steps are not options, the potential buyer may decide to cancel the sale. Buying a home with a cloudy title can make it difficult, if not impossible, to obtain title insurance, and mortgage lenders generally do not offer financing for a cloudy titled property. As a seller, you can offer a lower price to entice a buyer to close the sale and take responsibility for resolving the cloud issue on title issues themselves.

If there is a cloud on the title of a property you are considering buying and you wish to clear it before buying, you have a few options, although most require action from the seller/ current holder.

  • Lien payment: As a buyer, repaying the lien and filing the correct paperwork to clear the lien is an option if you are truly motivated to purchase a property. As noted above, you may be able to negotiate a lower sale price to help cover your personal financing to clear the title yourself. Many real estate investors and home buyers use this strategy to acquire properties from overwhelmed owners.
  • Deeds of retrocession: If the title has a lien but the debt has been paid, the lender/tax authority can usually execute a retrocession deed to show that the debt has been paid. If the seller is unable (or unwilling) to act on this option, you may be able to facilitate the process instead to ensure the sale can proceed.
  • Waivers: Quitclaims, which transfer legal rights to a property, allow you to eliminate the defect on a title (usually relatively simple defects, such as a misspelling or an unwanted easement). While this may clear the title, it also offers the lowest level of buyer protection of any type of deed.
  • Silent title action: This is a petition you file in court which, if granted, makes the seller responsible for all liens on the property while transferring title to the buyer, giving them full and unencumbered rights to the property. . Essentially, this “calms down” the cloud on the title. Depending on the circumstances, you may need to file a discreet title action to pay off any outstanding debt to clear the title.

Each of these steps requires additional work on the part of either the seller or the buyer and, regardless of the options chosen, it may be best for either or both parties to consult a lawyer before proceeding. to chase.

To further protect you as a buyer, you can also consider title insurance. This can ensure that even if clouds of title defects appear down the road, once your purchase is complete – and they might – you don’t have a financial obligation to rectify them.

The timely repayment of a loan with a bad credit bureau does not improve your creditworthiness because your loan is not reported to the credit bureau by the lender. However, if you don’t repay the loan, your credit score may suffer.

2. What is the downside of a bad credit loan?

A bad Schufa loan is a short-term loan with an extremely high interest rate that has to be repaid on the next payday. Some borrowers could end up with more debt if they fail to repay the bad credit loan on schedule. So take that into account and make sure you can pay it back.

3. What are the other options I can consider?

Borrow money from your family or friends – When you are in a difficult situation, reach out to your loved ones first to see if someone can lend you the money you need to help you.

Apply for a personal loan – A personal loan generally has a lower interest rate and longer repayment period than a bad credit loan. It is therefore worth submitting an application instead.
