We have a lot of brokered loans and the brokers do not handle any disclosures. Since this is the case, we are providing the servicing disclosure at closing. It is this a violation?

Yes.

Okay....this is what I was told word for word by our VP of lending. Thoughts? I want to make sure I am correct here.



"Brokers are not lenders...they cannot commit, lock in rates or close loans in their name, except FHA Correspondents. They do not "make loans". I believe it has to come from the Lender, not a Broker who can neither lend or service."

Look at the RESPA Reg X definition of "lender". Then look at 3500.21(b). If the broker is not closing in their name then the disclosure requirement for this disclosure does fall to the bank. But the timing requirement for disclosure is within 3 business days from the date your bank received the application, not at closing as your original post said was your practice. There are other disclosures that may be required at that point (within 3 business days) as well, such as the Good Faith Estimate, Settlement Costs booklet, early TIL, etc.
