Management is looking at a new product. They are looking at doing 2 year variable rate consumer construction loans. With a 2 year maturity, ATR would no longer be exempt, and would apply, am I correct about that?

Also, since the loan term is longer than 1 year, if the home is the primary dwelling, would the Early ARM disclosure at application apply?

I looked to see if anything in the dwelling definition cancels these two requirements out, since it is a construction loan, not an existing home, but did not specifically see anything I thought would change this, but wanted to confirm.

Correct on both accounts - so on the ATR side, you need to prove that they can pay the balloon payment without consideration of later refinancing.
The opinions expressed here should not be construed to be those of my employer:
