Application emailed in without GMI. Applicant came in next day to give tax returns. Loan officer made visual observation and filled out GMI on a sheet. This was before a decision was made on the loan. I've heard this is ok to do with an application receive via the mail. Is this ok via an electronic method or is it automatically an exception or even a violation?
This is fine within the regulation, you are within the application processing phase, but your bank should have a standard process and not just employees randomly deciding when to report and when not to report. You want consistency in handling if and how this is done.
