In the August 21, 2012 Federal Register (77 FR 50390), the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (CFPB) issued a proposed rule that would amend §1002.14 of Regulation B, the Form C-9 Notice, and the Official Interpretations to §1002.14 to require creditors to provide free copies of all written appraisals and valuations developed in connection with an application for a loan to be secured by a first lien on a dwelling. The proposed rule also would require creditors to notify applicants in writing of the right to receive a copy of each written appraisal or valuation at no additional cost.
