Frequently Asked Questions

How do I submit an address change?



Where do I go to get help with
customary and reasonable fees?
The appropriate agency to receive your concern about a creditor's compliance with the Truth in Lending Act (TILA), including the requirement for the creditor or the creditor's agent (includes AMCs) to pay an appraiser a customary and reasonable fee, is the agency that enforces TILA with respect to the creditor.

For a Federally insured credit union, the National Credit Union Administration is the appropriate agency.

For insured depository institutions of more than $10 billion and their affiliates, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is the appropriate agency.

For insured depository institutions of $10 billion or less, there are two websites to find the federal regulator for a creditor:   Federal Reserve System - National Information Center website: http://www.ffiec.gov/nicpubweb/nicweb/nichome.aspx

 FDIC website at the "Bank Find" webpage: http://www2.fdic.gov/idasp/main_bankfind.asp

For other non-depository institutions, the appropriate agency to receive the complaint is the CFPB or the Federal Trade Commission.

Questions regarding the appropriate interpretation of the Truth in Lending Act, including those on customary and reasonable fees, should be directed to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Office of Research, Markets and Regulation (William.Matchneer@cfpb.gov).

If the concern regards payment of customary and reasonable appraisal fees is related to a specific appraisal assignment or assignments, you can also contact the State appraisal board or agency in which the property or properties are located to find out if they have enacted appraisal laws and/or regulations that address your concern.
