Reply To: HPML Appraisal QM Exemption


The answer to your question is somewhat complicated but it boils down to if the loan meets the QM requirements then it is exempt from the HPML appraisal requirements. The commentary addresses this but I think the discussion in final rule explains it better. Take a look the final rule in the federal register:, beginning on page 78527 with the information under the final rule – I think you’ll find all the details you need.
