The Dodd-Frank Act required the new Consumer Finance Protection Bureau (CFPB) to submit a report to Congress with any recommendations for 1031 exchange legislation, or new updated regulations.
The CFPB report of June 21, 2012 concluded they have no recommendations for federal legislation or additional
agency rules for exchange facilitators and Qualified Intermediaries (QI).
The Federation of Exchange Accommodators (FEA) (www.1031.org) was closely involved with the CFPB study and made specific recommendations.
