why and what for
Why and What For?

There are two Federal regulations that govern the collection and reporting of HMDA loans and certain CRA loans;

  • 12 CFR 203; Regulation C; HMDA; Home Mortgage Disclosure Act
  • 12 CFR 228; Regulation BB; CRA; Community Reinvestment Act

The proper collection and reporting of loan data is “CRITICAL” because the government uses the data for many purposes including the distribution of loan data throughout the country, determination of loan trends, borrower characteristics and demographic data.

  • Regulators can issue poor compliance ratings for non-compliance; and/or
  • Civil Money Penalties for non-compliance
  • Can you spell Cease and Desist? It is as bad as it sounds
  • Significant risk – Reputation Risk, Compliance Risk, Monetary Risk (Penalties)
four main aspects that lead to success
Four Main Aspects That Lead To Success!
  • Determine the loan purpose
    • Home Purchase, Home Improvement, Refinance
    • Small Business / Small Farm, Commercial Purpose, (CRE), Community Development
  • Determine the loan amount
    • Dollar amount applied for
    • Dollar amount granted
  • Identity the borrower
    • Individual / Business Entity
    • For Profit / Not For-Profit
  • Identity the subject property / security
    • Residential Real Estate
    • Commercial Real Estate
    • Multifamily Housing – 5+ Properties
    • Mixed Use Property / Multiple Properties
    • Non Real Estate Secured

“The Golden Rule”

hmda purpose
HMDA Purpose!

To be reportable as a HMDA loan, the loan purpose must be for;

  • Home Purchase
    • Must be for the purpose of “Home Purchase”
    • Must be secured by a “Dwelling”
  • Home Improvement
    • Any part of the proceeds used for “Home Improvement” purpose (renovate, rehabilitate, a dwelling or the real property on which the dwelling exists)
    • May be secured or unsecured, (different depending on Residential or Commercial loan)
  • Refinance
    • Includes both Cash out and No Cash out
    • Must replace an existing lien with a new lien, (not necessarily the same dwelling)

Hierarchy of Reporting

Report “Home Purchase” first, “Home Improvement” second and “Refinance” third –

    • If a loan is both for Home Purchase and Home Improvement – Report as Home Purchase
    • If a loan is a Refinance to do Home Improvements – Report as Home Improvement
    • If loan is a Refinance for Cash out to purchase a second home – Report as Home Purchase
    • Includes both “Owner” and “Non-Owner” occupied properties
loans exempt from hmda reporting
Loans Exempt From HMDA Reporting –
  • Loans on unimproved land
  • Unless the financing includes the construction of a dwelling and is permanent
  • Construction Only Loans and other Temporary Financings
  • Includes builder / developer loans
  • Loans made or purchased in a fiduciary capacity
  • Purchase of an interest in a pool of mortgages, such as a participation
  • Purchase solely of loan servicing rights
  • Loans acquired as part of a merger
  • The acquisition of only a partial interest in a home purchase or home improvement loan – Consortium or Third party Loan
  • Unless the bank is the lead bank in the participation
  • Prequalification requests
  • Assumptions

In addition, do not report Lines or Letters of Credit

mixed use properties and multi purpose loans
Mixed Use Properties and Multi-Purpose Loans –
  • Mixed Use Property –
    • A mixed use property is one that involves both “Residential” and “Commercial” real estate;
      • Retail “Strip Mall” with multiple retail stores and residential rental apartments included in same structure.
      • Residential single family or 1-4 family residence with business attached.
      • Horse Farm with residential dwelling.
      • Restaurant with residential rental or owner occupied residence above.
      • For a mixed use property where both a commercial and residential purpose is evident, the loan is HMDA reportable if the total square footage used for residential purposes is greater than the square footage of the commercial usage.
      • Where square footage is not available or is not conclusive in making a determination, use the gross revenues derived from the residential use verses the revenues for retail purpose.
  • Multi-Purpose Loan –
    • A loan secured by commercial and or residential real estate for both a commercial and or residential purpose;
      • A refinance of a residential property to provide funds for home improvement.
      • A refinance of a residential property to provide funds to purchase a business or investment property.
      • A construction permanent loan to purchase and demolish a residential dwelling and construct a commercial building.
      • A construction permanent loan to convert an existing residence into a business property.
      • Remember the “Golden Rule”. If the purpose meets any of the three HMDA purpose tests, the loan is HMDA reportable.
      • If the purpose is a commercial purpose and none of the three HMDA tests are positive, then the loan is not HMDA reportable.
hmda purpose defined
HMDA Purpose Defined –
  • Home Purchase –
    • A loan secured by and made for the purpose of purchasing a dwelling; does not include a loan to purchase property used primarily for agricultural purposes even if the property includes a dwelling (may include a loan to purchase an apartment building made through a commercial lending department). The dwelling does not have to be the same dwelling.
    • A residential structure located in a State, the District of Columbia or Puerto Rico; includes an individual condo unit, co-op unit, or mobile or manufactured home: refers to any dwelling not necessarily owned by the borrower.
  • Home Improvement Loan –
    • A loan secured by a lien on a dwelling that is for the purpose, in whole or in part, of repairing, rehabilitating, remodeling, or improving a dwelling or real property on which it is located (may include a loan to improve an apartment building made through a commercial lending department); and
    • A non-dwelling secured loan that is for the purpose, in whole or in part, of repairing, rehabilitating, remodeling, or improving a dwelling or the real property on which it is located. IF CLASSIFED AS SUCH
  • Refinance –
    • A new obligation that satisfies and replaces an existing obligation by the same borrower in which both the existing obligation and the new obligation are secured by liens on dwellings. Whether or not cash out occurs is not relevant; the purpose of the refinance is not applicable; the lender need not have been the lender on the existing obligation.
special attention lar reporting fields
Special Attention LAR Reporting Fields –
  • Property Location –
    • Security as an “Abundance of Caution” – Business purpose loans that include a refinance of residential property are HMDA reportable if the property is primary security or the FMV of the property exceeds 50% of the loan proceeds when not primary.
    • Income –
    • Government Monitoring –
sometimes yes sometimes no
“Sometimes Yes, Sometimes No!”

There are a number of factors to consider, when determining if a loan is HMDA reportable. Sometimes, the slightest change in circumstance can change the determination. Remember to perform the “Golden Rule” test, account for exceptions and then make your determination;

  • Construction Loans –
    • Construction loans are generally not HMDA reportable unless the financing contains both the construction only and permanent component.
    • Loans to purchase and quickly renovate a dwelling, “Splash and Dash”, where the proceeds of the sale will repay the loan are HMDA reportable.
    • Construction loans to developers to build a residential development are not HMDA reportable unless the financing contains both construction and permanent financing.
    • Construction loans to developers to build a residential development are HMDA reportable if there is an existing dwelling on the property and the financing is not temporary.
      • Example – Builder A takes a construction loan to develop a 12 acre parcel of land and construct 12 residential homes on it – Loan is not HMDA Reportable
      • Example – Builder A enters into an agreement with builder B to purchase a failed development project. Builder A takes a construction loan to purchase the existing parcel with 3 partially completed dwellings already on the property, to finish and construct 9 additional homes – Loan is HMDA reportable.
sometimes yes sometimes no1
“Sometimes Yes, Sometimes No!”
  • Mixed Use Property –
    • The square footage and income or revenue tests for determining if a loan is HMDA reportable only apply if the commercial purpose and residential purpose are contained in the same structure.
    • If the residential purpose is fulfilled by a separate structure on the same parcel, then the loan is HMDA reportable.
      • Example – Commercial customer is purchasing a strip mall that contains 8 retail businesses on the first floor and apartments on the second floor. The square footage of the retail shops total of 10,000 sq feet and the total square footage of the apartments is 6,000 sq feet. Since the square footage of the retail space is greater than the residential use, the loan is not HMDA reportable.
      • Example – In the same example, an additional 2 family residence is located on the property and is not attached to the other structure – Loan is HMDA reportable.
  • Home Improvement Loans –
    • Secured “Home Improvement” loans where any part of the proceeds are used to renovate, rehabilitate or improve the dwelling or the real property the dwelling is located on, are HMDA reportable.
    • Unsecured “Home Improvement” loans are only reportable if the institution classifies the loan as a home improvement loan. Classification means – Classifying in separate category on call report; coding by color, tag or any other method the loan file differently then other loans; segregating the loan type from other loan files. For commercial loans, there is no current segregation or classification, therefore, unsecured HI loans are not HMDA reportable.
sometimes yes sometimes no2
“Sometimes Yes, Sometimes No!”
  • Transitory Residences –
    • A loan to purchase, improve or refinance a “Transitory Residence” is not HMDA reportable because the residence is considered temporary in nature. Transitory residences include the following;
    • Hotels and Motels and Dormitories
    • Half way houses
    • Church shelters
    • Substance abuse homes and temporary residences for mental retardation
    • Temporary assisted living quarters
    • Timeshare Purchases
    • Example – Commercial loan to a church or non-profit entity to finance the purchase of a group home as a temporary shelter for battered and wayward women – Not HMDA Reportable.
    • If the residence is considered non temporary, then the loan is HMDA reportable;
    • Permanent Assisted living residences
    • Retirement communities and living residences
    • Church sponsored permanent housing
      • Example – Commercial loan to a non-profit church or entity to finance the purchase of an assisted living and retirement group home for the elderly as permanent housing – HMDA reportable.
cra reporting
CRA Reporting –
  • Reporting of Commercial Loans on the CRA LAR is based on loan type and collateral not loan purpose. In addition, unlike HMDA LAR collection you only report originations.
  • The CRA LAR contains only the following fields;
    • Application Number
    • Loan Type (FED CRA Loan Purpose) / State CRA Loan Type
    • Loan Amount
    • Action Taken Type
    • Action Date
    • MSA/MD, State Code, County Code, Census Tract
