Originally posted in Compliance Masters Group Forum by cmitchell:
We have a ‘sister bank’ in another state that did not have an active mortgage lending portfolio. Our bank is partnering with them in processing applications. Bank A has an employee, registered on their bank with the NMLSR, who takes applications and submits them to Bank B for processing, underwriting, closing, and selling on secondary market.
How do we disclose this? On the 1003 application, the originator from bank A is listed as the Loan Originator, then Bank B is listed as the company name. Even though the originator doesn’t work for Bank B.
Would this relationship be considered as a ‘mortgage-broker’ under Regulation Z? We are trying to determine if the fees would be included in the calculations for finance charge and/or points and fees.
From your information, it seems Bank A is acting as a mortgage broker for loans that Bank B is closing/creditor.
