What would the HMDA loan purpose be for a loan secured by a dwelling that had no outstanding liens for the purpose of building another home. Would it be Equity or Purchase? It is a consumer purpose loan.

3. Construction and permanent financing. A home purchase loan includes both a combined construction/permanent loan or line of credit, and the separate permanent financing that replaces a construction-only loan or line of credit for the same borrower at a later time. A home purchase loan does not include a construction-only loan or line of credit that is designed to be replaced by separate permanent financing extended by any financial institution to the same borrower at a later time or that is extended to a person exclusively to construct a dwelling for sale, which are excluded from Regulation C as temporary financing under § 1003.3(c)(3). Comments 3(c)(3)-1 and -2 provide additional details about transactions that are excluded as temporary financing.
I'm fixin' to fix that.

Let me piggyback this with a change in the scenario. When you have an application to purchase a second home that will be secured by a cash out refinance (no existing mortgage) of the primary residence, is the purpose "home purchase" or "other"? I know the property securing the loan will be used for occupancy, geocoding, lien, etc. BUT the purpose is throwing me off today. This was withdrawn, but we were not taking a lien of the second home and dont even know where it was going to be.

Thanks for the help!!!

It's a purchase:

2(j) Home Purchase Loan

1. Multiple properties. A home purchase loan includes a closed-end mortgage loan or an open-end line of credit secured by one dwelling and used to purchase another dwelling. For example, if a person obtains a home-equity loan or a reverse mortgage secured by dwelling A to purchase dwelling B, the home-equity loan or the reverse mortgage is a home purchase loan under § 1003.2(j).
