Since 1989 Regulation Z has required financial institutions to develop special home equity lines of credit (HELOC) program disclosures. Many other regulations also apply to HELOCs, frequently with provisions that are unique for this type of credit. HELOCs are complicated. There are layers of disclosures provided at application, closing and throughout the life of the line. There are restrictions that apply to HELOCs that do not apply to other types of loans. There are unique portfolio management issues such as how to handle lines that are nearing the end of their draw periods, and limitations on selecting a new index when the existing index expires.
This two-hour program explains how to develop, maintain and audit HELOC program disclosures and provides an overview of other required disclosures. The program explains the rules, reviews typical problems, and provides steps to assure ongoing compliance.
Participants receive a detailed manual that serves as a handbook long after the program is completed.
The program is designed for loan officers, compliance officers, loan support staff, marketing staff, auditors, and any others with responsibilities related to the origination and maintenance of HELOCs.
