    What to Expect in Banking Regulation in the Second Half of 2022

    What to Expect in Banking Regulation in the Second Half of 2022

    The first half of 2022 saw a few noteworthy proposals and other actions by the US banking regulators. Final rulemakings on some proposals could come in the second half of the year, but others may be delayed until 2023. In either case, we expect to see significant action on some of these issues through the issuance of supervisory guidance, review of pending requests and applications, and heightened examiner attention. Mayer Brown lawyers Jeffrey Taft, Matthew Bisanz and Kerri Webb discuss some of the key regulatory issues for banks to follow.

    The Past Is the Present? New York’s Retroactive Foreclosure Legislation

    The Past Is the Present? New York’s Retroactive Foreclosure Legislation

    It’s not the easiest time to be in the mortgage business. Mortgage investors and servicers continue to deal with the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects on borrowers. Rising interest rates could drain the plentiful supply of refinance business from prior years and deter hopeful homebuyers from seeking new financing. And now the New York legislature has added another layer of complexity by passing a bill that would significantly impact the residential mortgage foreclosure process in New York. The New York legislation has been approved by both houses of the New York legislature and, if enacted, would significantly constrain lenders’, servicers’ and investors’ ability to efficiently prosecute foreclosure actions and potentially jeopardize their ability to recover their mortgage debt. Join Mayer Brown lawyers Krista Cooley, Tom Panoff and Frank Doorley for an overview of the legislation and a discussion of what it may mean for residential mortgage loan servicers in New York and which of its provisions are potentially retroactive.

    Commercial Financing Disclosures Coming to a State Near You

    Commercial Financing Disclosures Coming to a State Near You

    Four states—and counting—have enacted laws requiring providers of a wide range of commercial financing to give applicants detailed disclosures of the sort previously seen only in the consumer credit industry. California enacted the pioneering law in 2018, and New York, Utah and Virginia (so far) have followed suit. The most recent examples, the Utah and Virginia laws, have also included a requirement that financers register with the state, increasing the compliance burden for covered entities.
    These laws impose an array of implementation challenges and present a variety of questions of interpretation—not the least of which is when they take effect. Mayer Brown lawyers Jeff Taft, Krista Cooley, Frank Doorley and Dan Pearson discuss:
    An overview of the new laws What they mean for providers of commercial financing now What we can expect to see in the future as effective dates approach and additional states introduce their own commercial financing disclosure and registration bills

    Lenders Take Note: How the UK National Security and Investment Act 2021 Could Affect Lending and Debt Restructuring

    Lenders Take Note: How the UK National Security and Investment Act 2021 Could Affect Lending and Debt Restructuring

    The UK National Security and Investment Act 2021 (the “Act”) entered into force on January 4, 2022 and enables the UK government to screen, block and unwind certain transactions on national security grounds. A new body, the Investment Security Unit (“ISU”), is responsible for the operation of the new regime. The Act provides for mandatory prior notification and approval of certain transactions in 17 sensitive sectors, and for the retrospective “call-in” of other transactions. The new regime does not only apply to M&A. The new powers could also potentially apply to lending (especially secured financings) and restructuring and, until the ambit of the legislation becomes clearer, a cautious approach is advised.
    Lenders are well advised to consider whether the Act would apply to their lending and restructuring transactions, and the implications for the deal timetable and execution risk. Mayer Brown partners David Harrison and Trevor Borthwick give an overview of the new powers and discuss the key factors to consider at each stage of a lending transaction: signing/closing, trigger events during the tenor of the facility and enforcement/restructuring.
