Real Estate Lending Compliance
Congress has consistently provided special protection to consumer loan borrowers, especially those who secure loans with their home. There has been an explosion of new lending requirements over the past few years and the changes continue into 2021. The program provides an overview of the real estate lending requirements from ten regulations, along with comprehensive coverage of selected topics, policy suggestions, employee training tips, audit techniques and steps to eliminate past problems. Emphasis is placed on coverage and exemption rules, determining which disclosures are required, the content of the required disclosures and prohibited acts or practices. Every year major changes appear and this year is no exception. Provisions of the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act (EGRRCPA) continue to unfold. Those provisions impact Regulation Z, Regulation C, the Fair Credit Reporting Act and the SAFE Act. Revisions and clarification of HMDA and Regulation C continue. The program and the manual have been completely updated for these rules. In these days of the COVID-19 pandemic many lenders are making loans they have not made in the past or are making payment accommodations that they have not made in the past. If great care is not taken, these new efforts designed to provide relief to customers will lead to a COVID Hangover down the road. The presentations have been updated to include suggestions for avoiding the COVID Hangover. The program is designed for Compliance Officers, Loan Officers, Loan Processors, Auditors, and others with responsibilities related to the origination and servicing of mortgage loans.
