Mortgage lenders, banks, and trade groups have been put on alert as the latest proposal could drastically impact their residential mortgage portfolios.
The proposed changes, if passed, would require large banks to have higher capital requirements compared to international standards. This could lead to bank’s curtailing their mortgage offerings or pulling them entirely due to higher capital requirements.
