New mortgage rules in effect

Today, new mortgage rules are in effect to protect borrowers from abusive lenders and reduce the risk of foreclosures.

Lenders must determine that a borrower has the income and assets to make payments throughout the life of the loan.
The new rules do not require a minimum down payment, so first-time buyers "do" have a better chance at getting a loan.
