Mandates flowing from the Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act of 2008 (SAFE Act) have been implemented over the past decade. This topic will review these mandates and how they have been implemented and will focus on the most recent addition to the SAFE Act created by the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act (EGRRCP) in 2018.
