An alphabet soup of changes!!!

higher priced 10 1 2009
“HIGHER PRICED” – 10/1/2009

“Higher-priced mortgage loans” - “consumer credit transactions secured by consumers’ principal dwellings” that are

    • For first liens - 1.5 percentage points above the “prime offer rate”
    • For second-lien loans - 3.5 percentage points over
  • Came to be because of TIL changes.

Note: Requirements for “higher-priced loans” extend to home purchase and home improvement loans and refinances as proposed

higher priced cont
  • Prohibits a lender from making a loan without regard to borrowers' ability to repay the loan from income and assets other than the home's value.
    • A lender complies, in part, by assessing repayment ability based on the highest scheduled payment in the first seven years of the loan. To show that a lender violated this prohibition, a borrower does not need to demonstrate that it is part of a "pattern or practice."
  • Prohibits a lender from relying on income or assets that it does not verify to determine repayment ability.
  • Bans any prepayment penalty if the payment can change during the initial four years. For other higher-priced loans, a prepayment penalty period cannot last for more than two years.
  • Requires that the lender establish an escrow account for the payment of property taxes and homeowners' insurance for first-lien loans.
hmda effective 10 1 09
HMDA - effective 10/1/09

Compliance is mandatory for loan applications taken on or after October 1, 2009 and for all loans that close on or after January 1, 2010 (regardless of the application date).

  • Currently a HMDA rate spread is reported if the yield between the APR and Treasury Securities is 3% on first liens and 5% on subordinate liens.
  • This will be replaced with the “Average Prime Offer Rate” and will now be a rate of 1.5% for first liens and 3.5% for subordinate liens.
  • HMDA reporting for 2009 shall have January to September 30 applications reported as the 3 to 5 rate spread, and applications taken after October 1 reported using the new 1.5 to 3.5 rate spreads.

waiting period for corrected disclosures
Waiting Period for Corrected Disclosures
  • Closing may not occur until 3 business days after the consumer receives the corrected disclosures.

business day different definitions
Business Day – Different Definitions
  • Business Day for Early Disclosures
    • 3 business days and uses the "days on which a creditor’s offices are open to the public for carrying on substantially all of its business functions" definition (to remain consistency between TILA and RESPA)
  • Business Day for Waiting Periods
    • (7 business days to consummation; 3 business days for corrected) = "all calendar days except Sundays and specified legal public holidays specified at 5 USC 6103(a)"
january 1 2010 respa

  • New Good Faith Estimate (now 3 pages long)

Principles of RESPA Reform

  • Help consumers shop for the best loan
  • Shopping leads to greater competition & lower prices
  • Key final terms of the loan disclosed to the borrower at closing
  • Preserve a competitive market for all settlement service providers

Not until 1/1/2010

  • Applicationmeans the submission of a borrower’s financial information in anticipation of a credit decision relating to a federally related mortgage loan, which shall include:
    • the borrower’s name,
    • the borrower’s monthly income,
    • the borrower’s social security number to obtain a credit report, the property address,
    • an estimate of the value of the property,
    • the mortgage loan amount sought,
    • and any other information deemed necessary by the loan originator.
  • An application may either be in writing or electronically submitted, including a written record of an oral application.

  • Home Valuation Code of Conduct
    • Loans originated on or after May 1, 2009, and delivered to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.
    • The purpose of HVCC is to preserve Appraiser independence from improper influence by the parties who order appraisals.
    • Independence from Loan Production. All members of a lender’s loan production staff are prohibited from selecting or otherwise influencing the selection of an appraiser, as well as having any substantive communications with an appraiser relating to the appraiser’s valuation.
    • Borrower must be given a copy of any appraisal report concerning the borrower's subject property, promptly upon completion, and no less than three days prior to the closing of the loan.
    • Lenders are required to perform quality control tests on a randomly selected 10 percent sample of the appraisals or valuations used by the lender.

  • Establishes Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System and Registry comprehensive database
  • Coverage – “Loan originators” - Takes loan applications and offers or negotiates terms of loans for compensation or gain. (Advising on loan terms, preparing loan packages, or collecting information on behalf of the consumer would qualify as “origination.”)
  • Minimum Standards – For state licensing and registry laws for “originators” include:
    • Annual licensing and registration;
    • Unique identifier; fingerprints and background checks:
    • Demonstrated financial responsibility, character, and general fitness
    • Minimum educational requirements and written examination
    • Restrictions against licensees being issued to persons that have had license revoked, pled guilty or been convicted of a financial crime or breach of trust
