December 6, 2023REGISTER NOW
This program provides the top 15 issues that may be undermining your HMDA compliance efforts.
The 2018 modifications to HMDA were massive and many financial institutions are still dealing with the challenges of collecting data under the burdensome new requirements. The partial exemption provisions resulting from EGRRCPA were a blessing and a curse.
Other recent activity includes:
- An advanced notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPR) was published on May 8, 2019.The ANPR solicited comments about the costs and benefits of collecting and reporting the data points the 2015 HMDA Rule added to Regulation C and certain preexisting data points that the 2015 HMDA Rule revised. Comments on the APRN were accepted until July 8, 2019. This rule is still pending.
- On April 16, 2020 the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) published a final rule amending Regulation C to set the thresholds for reporting data about:
- Closed-end mortgage loans, so that institutions originating fewer than 100 closed-end mortgage loans in either of the two preceding calendar years will not have to report such data effective July 1, 2020.
- Open-end lines of credit at 200 open-end lines of credit effective January 1, 2022, upon the expiration of the current temporary threshold of 500 open-end lines of credit.
- On December 6, 2022, the CFPB rescinded the small filer exemption for institutions with >100 closed in mortgage loans as a result of a lawsuit filed in the District Court of Columbia stating the CFPB did not have the right to change the law. Starting January 1, 2023, reporting thresholds changed back to <25 closed in mortgage loans for reporting.
