Kimberly Lundquist - FIC Conferences & Cherise Riley – CLR Mortgage Services

Are you ready to implement the newly redesigned Uniform Residential Loan Application Fannie Mae 1003/Freddie Mac 65?  Your software provider is probably already sending you updates for the new Application form.  The target date for Lenders to begin using the newly revised URLA has been extended from July 1, 2019 but it looks like the GSE Mandatory Deadline will still be February 2020.  Does your software accommodate the new form?  We will take you step by step through the application and the application process.Do you wish there was a short recording on how to properly request, collect and document the demographic information during the interview process without having to constantly retrain your staff?  As a special bonus, we will provide you access to a mini-presentation on this very subject once you attend the 3-Day Workshop.  If you are not planning to implement the new URLA, do you have to report to collect and report to HMDA?  Is the application you are using adequate & efficient to easily accommodate your HMDA responsibilities?  Maybe we can help!It is during the application stage that the appropriate government monitoring information be requested for both ECOA/Reg B and HMDA purposes.

1:00pm - 2:30pm – Closing Packages & Trouble Shooting (including Construction Permanent Lending) 

 Matt Filpi, Attorney – ppdocs, inc. powered by peirsonpatterson,llp

During the beginning stages of the loan process we often make decisions that will affect the Closing Disclosure, for example; using the standard LE means we must use the standard CD even in the case of a transaction where no seller is involved and the alternate CD would be easier (& vice versa).  Let’s trouble-shoot the process with Matt to discuss common mistakes and misunderstandings, especially when it comes to the closing packages on more complicated loans like ARMs, Construction and Construction/Perm loans.  We are still seeing TRID challenges especially in the closing packages!         

                  2:30pm – 2:45pm Break

9:00am - 10:30am – Best Servicing Practices - Digging Deeper

 Cherise Riley – CLR Mortgage Services

The Fair Debt Collections Practices Act was enacted in 1978. Recently, a 530 plus page proposal was published in the Federal Register on May 21, 2019, and it is the first substantive modification to update the applicability of this old law. The CFPB sees debt collection as its number one complaint issue based on the volume of complaints from 2015 to 2018 – so obviously the servicing issues have become an important topic of discussion.         

                  10:30am – 10:45am Break

10:45am – 12noon – HMDA & Fair Lending Issues - Operations & Compliance

Kimberly Lundquist - FIC Conferences & Cherise Riley – CLR Mortgage Services

Basic Fundamentals of HMDA will be covered and we will specifically address the implementation of the latest changes, including newly proposed rule to amend Regulation C.  The proposed rule change would apply to institutions with a home office or branch in an MSA with assets in excess of $46 million as of December 31, 2018.

It proposes:

(i) two alternatives to increase the threshold for reporting data about closed-end mortgage loans so that institutions originating fewer than either 50 closed end mortgage loans, or alternatively 100 closed-end mortgage loans, in either of the two preceding calendar years would not have to report such data as of January 1, 2020;

(ii) to adjust the threshold for reporting data about open-end lines of credit by extending to January 1, 2022, the current temporary threshold of 500 open-end lines of credit and setting the threshold at 200 open-end lines of credit upon the expiration of the proposed extension of the temporary threshold;

(iii) to incorporate into Regulation C the interpretations and procedures from the interpretive and procedural rule that the CFPB issued on August 31, 2018; and

(iv) to implement further section 104(a) of the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act.

This will make final the partial exemptions and clarify the reporting required under 2018 amendments adopted under the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act (EGRRCPA). The exemptions provide covered institutions the option of reporting exempt data fields as long as they report all data fields within any exempt data point for which they report data; clarify that only loans and lines of credit that are otherwise HMDA reportable count toward the thresholds for the partial exemptions; clarify which of the data points in Regulation C are covered by the partial exemptions; designate a non-universal loan identifier for partially exempt transactions for institutions that choose not to report a universal loan identifier; and clarify the exception to the partial exemptions for insured depository institutions with less than satisfactory examination histories under the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 (CRA). These changes would become effective on January 1, 2020.   

 Any Question is Fair Game!
