On July 24, 2014 the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau published long-awaited proposed revisions to its Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) rules. The 573-page proposed rule would make sweeping changes to Regulation C, and dramatically expand financial HMDA reporting and compliance obligations. There are potential fair lending implications – more data means more analysis to detect potential discriminatory lending practices. The proposed changes include required reporting of 37 new data fields, 20 of which are not required by HMDA and represent additional information the CFPB would like to collect. The proposal would require financial institutions to report home equity lines of credit (HELOCs), reverse mortgages, and commercial loans secured by a dwelling. In addition, the proposal would require “larger” HMDA reporters to report data every calendar quarter, rather than on an annual basis.
What do you need to know now? Attend this session to review the HMDA reporting requirements for 2015 and learn practical tips for data collection and validation. What’s on the horizon? We’ll review the proposed rule to help prepare for the changes that may become effective in 2016.
