Basic Fundamentals of HMDA will be covered and we will specifically address the 2018 implementation of the lastest changes.  The Rule is hundreds of pages long, providing numerous important changes to HMDA data collection and reporting requirements. While the rule has been amended to aide in revealing fair lending issues, the proof in performance remains to be seen. The new rule requires a great deal more data to be collected from creditors and requires new reporting timing requirements. Who must comply with HMDA collection and reporting?  Is your present software going to be able to handle everything? Do you provide Preapprovals or Prequals? What loans must be reported? Understanding the codes for the “Action Taken” Using the Rate Spread Calculator The next few years of major changes in our data collection both during the application process on the application itself and HMDA reporting will provide an abundance of specific information that may leave us vulnerable to fair lending issues.

When advertising mortgage loans a mountain of rules and risks come into play, most of which are required by Regulation Z.  That means the penalties for violations will be steep.

We will also take the opportunity during this session to provide an overview and discussion of Section 8 of RESPA which prohibits referral fees. It is one of the most critical sections of RESPA, and many lenders who are involved in referral and/or broker relationships need to have better safeguards in the structure of providing goods, facilities or services in return for a fee.
