First, I know that a withdrawn preapproval (with TBD Address) is not reportable. We are having a discussion regarding preapprovals with subsequent property identification and whether they are reportable.

Scenario: Application for preapproval received 10/13. Property identified on 10/17. On 10/18 applicant withdrew application because of mold issues with the property. No appraisal or underwriting was done.

I say this application is now reportable as withdrawn with preapproval marked as 1

Others say report as withdrawn but mark preapproval as 2

And others are saying not reportable because withdrawn preapprovals are not reported.

Which is correct?

Assuming you have the five other pieces of information, it is my understanding that once you have an address, it's no longer a pre-approval. It becomes an application for both TRID and HMDA. I would would mark it as a preapproval yes for HMDA.

Once you have a property address this becomes a full application and would be reported as withdrawn. Per the commentary, the preapproval code would be '2':

2. Scope of requirement. A financial institution reports that the application or covered loan did not involve a preapproval request for a purchased covered loan; an application or covered loan for any purpose other than a home purchase loan; an application for a home purchase loan or a covered loan that is a home purchase loan secured by a multifamily dwelling; an application or covered loan that is an open-end line of credit or a reverse mortgage; or an application that is denied, withdrawn by the applicant, or closed for incompleteness.
