Help Simplify Mortgage Forms

Mortgage forms from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

When you apply for a mortgage you usually receive two separate forms with information about the loan.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) wants to make the mortgage process easier to understand by creating one form with all of the information about your mortgage.

The CFPB has two draft forms — you can vote on which one you think is the best and then provide your comments on the form.

    The deadline to vote is Friday.
