HMDA 2018 Challenges With Taking Commercial Applications Webinar
There are approximately 95+ “working days” from this presentation until January 1, 2018. There are very few parts of the existing rules that will remain unchanged and there are 110 data elements in the new rule. Will you be ready for these extensive changes?
Webinar Description and Intended Audience
Are you prepared for these sweeping changes? HMDA reporters must follow the new rules for applications when final action is taken on or after January 1, 2018. Many banks do not have a formal “application” form for commercial and agricultural loan requests. While the reporting process may be more streamlined in the mortgage and consumer area, there will be significant changes for business purpose applications. The “dwelling secured” standard was generally adopted for closed-end loans and lines of credit for consumers. Business or commercial loans have both the loan purpose test and the dwelling secured test. Business or commercial purpose loans and lines of credit are reportable only if the purpose of the loan is for home purchase, home improvement, or refinance and the loan is secured by a dwelling.
What type of business purpose loans will be reported? What factors are considered in the purpose test? What if the collateral is a “mixed use” property? Lenders must request applicants and co-applicants who are “natural persons” to identify their ethnicity, race, and sex; this requirement does not apply to a corporation, partnership, LLC, or guarantors. Will the data collection forms you are currently using provide all the required fields for the new reporting requirements?
