1. This 9-Other reason is usually for things specific to our bank or the LOB guidelines
2. You seemed to agree with this one.
3. 4-Collateral is related to insufficient collateral type or value, so anything related to owners on title or the lack thereof is more appropriately reported under our specific 9-Other reason. The same is true for items like the 1st lien already being a HE loan (especially being in Texas), so it was required that it be paid off when getting another HE loan (sometimes not disclosed upfront and discovered later). We noticed with the scope of our OCC exams, especially now when their focusing on addressing appraisal disparities/bias, we need the 4-Collateral denial reason to be purely the regulatory definition.
Please note my question was more specific to how one would report if they had multiple 9-Other reasons. What is considered acceptable? I know you are trying to convert our reasons to other codes, but regardless of whether or not you rightfully did so, my question would still remain as there are other 9-Other reasons we have (Ex. AMOUNT IS BELOW MINIMUM FOR THIS PRODUCT). Note we don't have many more than this, if any, as I know we are to minimize our usage of the 9-Other reason.
