I am performing a HMDA compliance review and in looking at a loan appliation that in HMDA reportable, I noticed that the applicant marked "female" as their gender. We keep copies of driver's licenses and I can clearly tell they are "male". Can I change the application to indicate the correct gender status? Or should we just report it as documented on the application?
If the borrower marked it themselves, keep it as-is. Your job is to make sure your LAR matches the documents, not to make sure the borrower marks it correctly. (No snark - I've run into the problem several times. Even had one applicant who marked ALL the race choices just to be difficult. )
You call it ADD. I call it multi-tasking.
