Does anyone have a good definition of what exactly a higher priced mortgage loan is? I have read it in Reg. Z but looking for a very general definition for the bank as a whole.

thanks

I don't know how much clearer it could be. If the spread above the APOR is above the respective threshold, it is a HPML.

HPMLS are now defined as closed-end residential mortgage loans secured by the consumer's principal dwelling with an APR that exceed the average prime offer rate (APOR) for comparable transactions by the following thresholds:
1). 1,5 percentage points for a first lien conforming residential mortgage loan.
2). 2.5 percentage points for a first lien jumbo residential mortgage loan.
3). 3.5 percentage points for a subordinate lien residential mortgage loan.
