The so-called GSE Patch for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's (CFPB) 2013 Ability-to-Repay (ATR) and Qualified Mortgage (QM) rule (Rule) is scheduled to expire in January 2021 (earlier if the government sponsored enterprises (GSEs) are released from conservatorship.)

Some are hiring with the caveat of not hiring anyone requiring desk space in the office. Vets know that full pipelines in July don’t necessarily mean full pipelines in October.
