The Dodd-Frank Law
Let me go on the record that I am against my little corner of the Dodd Frank law. How they changed the law with respect to writing loans and pricing mortgages. It has made pricing a loan much more difficult and I do not see any benefits to the customer. This legislation basically causes us to charge too little on a small loan and too much on a big loan.
