Here is another Reg B appraisal question that has me stumped. Currently, Reg B applies to all loans secured by a dwelling. As you know, we have to give the Right to Receive notice to all loans secured by a dwelling. The new rule only covers 1st liens on a dwelling. So, after January 18th we will have to provide notice and appraisals to all applicants who apply for a loan secured by a 1st lien on a dwelling. So, what happens to the subordinate liens after January 18th? We have no Reg B appraisal requirements for subordinate liens? I would tend to believe that that is the correct answer since the regulation is silent on it but it seems like they would mention it since we currently have a responsibility to give them a notice.

The changed language doesn't include any requirements for subordinates, so my take is...it disappears when the new rule takes over.

1) You still have to conform to the Interagency Appraisal Guidelines.

2) There will not be a Regulation B requirement after 1/18/14 for notices or appraisal copies for junior-lien secured loans.

3) However, there remains the matter of the HPML appraisal requirement under Reg Z 1026.35(c). If the loan in question is closed-end and secured by the consumer's principal dwelling, and otherwise fits the definition of an HPML at 1026.35(a)(1) for a junior lien-secured loan, the appraisal requirements of section .35(c) will apply.

If we decide to give our customers their appraisal even if the loan is a junior lien, are we in violation to the new requirements?
