Why S.3502 Matters: Ending Unwanted Trigger Leads

Urgent Advocacy Needed

The Homebuyers’ Privacy Protection Act aims to put an end to the detrimental practice of trigger leads, a concern that affects consumers and disrupts the mortgage marketplace. Trigger leads occur when a consumer applies for a mortgage, and the inquiry triggers a notification to credit bureaus, who then sell this information to data brokers without the consumer’s consent.

This leads to an onslaught of unsolicited calls attempting to divert consumers from their chosen lenders, causing confusion and frustration. Senator Hagerty and Senator Reed’s proposed legislation seeks to rectify this issue, providing consumers with more control over their information during the homebuying process.

What S.3502 Proposes: Empowering Consumers

The proposed bill prohibits consumer reporting agencies from furnishing trigger leads unless the third party certifies a current relationship with the consumer. This ensures that consumers have greater control over the information shared during the homebuying process, eliminating trigger lead abuses while allowing for their appropriate use in limited circumstances.
