The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has developed new rules that will affect mortgage lending for small banks in the state.

The Ability-to-Repay rule will require mortgage lenders to go to greater lengths to document and verify a borrower's ability to repay a loan.

Balloon payments will prohibited, with some exceptions.

Coverage of the Homeownership and Equity Protection Act of 1994 will be expanded. The law requires greater disclosures to borrowers for high-interest loans.
