Fair Lending Webinar-Understanding the Basics and How to Conduct a Comparative File Review

As long as you are making loans, fair lending concerns are here to stay. Although cases of overt discrimination are few and far apart, disparate treatment can often happen inadvertently. Awareness, monitoring and a periodic comparative file review can lessen the possibility of adverse issues arising in your institution. Join us for this informative session.

We will start with reviewing the types of lending discrimination and provide examples to enhance your understanding of these critical terms. Another critical component of understanding potential fair lending issues is includes the discussion of redlining. Then we will walk you through the steps of a comparative file review and also provide tools to make it all easier for you, such as worksheets and a sample report format.

The discussion regarding fair lending issues will be a great refresher for all of your mortgage loan originators.
