Qualified Residential Mortgage and Risk Retention

After nearly three years of deliberations, regulators finalized the Qualified Residential Mortgage (QRM) rule in October, 2014. The final rule includes a broad definition of QRM and aligns it with the Qualified Mortgage standard implemented earlier in 2014. Previously proposed QRM rules imposed high down payment requirements.
