It's that time of year again when old and new HMDA reporters search for answers in their efforts to produce squeaky clean LARs.
As long as HMDA has been out there, a lot of the questions that come up have been answered in the past. Just as often, you can't find what you're looking for or don't know how to search for it. In light of this, may I suggest the following options:
There is a good search function here on BOL. Click on Search in the blue bar on the top of this page and then chose advanced and fill out the boxes. You can even pull up part of the thread if you click the box that reads: Show a preview of post body with results.
If it doesn't produce the answers you need, try using google.
If you include BOL in your search, it will bring up links to threads that can help you.
Additionally, bookmark the GIR on your computer. You should have a box with the word 'find' in it at the top of the opening page of the GIR. Insert your keyword there and keep hitting 'next' till you find the reference you need.
This is by no means meant to discourage you from asking a question here in this forum. It's truly meant as a helping hand from someone who relies on BOL every day and definitely has been there...done that...and got the t-shirt.
Here's to perfect LARs for us all!
