When isn't a ROR needed on a second lien loan? We have the following situation: principal dwelling, $125K home equity line, subordinate lien, new loan customer at our bank. The borrower states that ROR does not apply in second lien loans. This is not a refinance. I am insisting that a ROR applies per Reg Z but they are stating that it's not applicable per state law?

1. Business purpose credit.
2. Not the borrower's primary residence.
3. No cash out refinance.
4. It's part of a RMT.

Those are the only four that comes to mind at this time.

Unless your state is exempt from Reg. Z or your state requirement is more stringent, Reg. Z will prevail.

When you take a non-purchase money security interest in a person's primary dwelling, the right of rescission applies.

Why would a state loan contradict a federal law? Wouldn't federal law prevail?

Unless your state is exempt from Reg. Z - some states have their own version of TIL and are "excused" from Reg. Z.

state requirement is more stringent - if state law is more stringent than Federal Law - state law will prevail - unless you operate under the preemption rules.

Reg. Z will prevail - if neither of the above applies then Reg. Z prevails.

Millie: You have received some excellent advise in this string. I also want to add the following:

You stated that this was a line of credit. The exemption for "no cash out refinance" is not included in the open-end rules {226.15]. IOW, if you have a HELOC that is refinanced, you ALWAYS provide a RofR.

The only state that I am aware of that has exempted itself from various section of TILA is Massachusetts.

Should #3 read, "No cash out refinance, same creditor."?
