Areas of Expertise:
Should non-RE loans that exceed the dollar threshold for Regulation Z coverage still be considered consumer loans as far as coding and reporting?
We have a difference of opinion. One side believes the Reg Z exemption essentially changes the loan into a commercial loan in every way. The other thinks that the disclosures in the documentation is where the exemption is primarily seen and the loan should be coded and reported exactly like any other loan of its type that is under the threshold. Any clarification would be appreciated.
If TILA disclosures are provided in a loan to a business entity and the APR is understated - is this a violation of regulation Z although loans to business entities are exempt from the coverage of Regulation Z?
Is the servicing disclosure required on Home Equity Lines of Credit?
If a HMDA applicable application was withdrawn by the borrower before it ever got to the originator, what do we put for the NMLS number? Can we leave blank, should we put N/A (I believe that's only for Originators that don't have and don't need NMLS numbers), should we default to a manager or is there another recommendation?
I just found a hoard of FDIC Quarterly Banking Profile books. I am assuming that we have kept these over the years because no one knew how long to keep them. As a rule of thumb, I have been keeping things that I am unsure of for at least 5 years. I have not found something in my department that has to be kept any longer tan that. I could not find any record retention guidance for this book. Should I trust my gut and just keep 5 years worth?
Can a lender accept verbal telephone confirmation from an applicant of receipt of the 3-day closing disclosure?
We have an IRA beneficiary who has inherited an IRA. She is a non-spouse beneficiary of the original IRA, and has named her spouse and daughter as beneficiaries of her inherited IRA (payout account). When calculating FDIC insurance, what ownership category applies to this inherited IRA, is it considered a "certain retirement account" or a revocable trust account?
We have a credit transaction that came in today on a closed debit card. This card has been closed for so long that it is not on our system any
longer. This was presented as a "force post" transaction and did not go thru the authorization channel. Can we return this transaction even though
it is attached to a debit card?
Can a home health nurse legally add themselves to an elderly person's account?
We received notice on Oct. 28 that a borrower was now in flood zone AE. A 45 day notice was sent (force placement would have occurred on Dec. 13). On
Dec. 12 we received a copy of a declaration page showing coverage starting effective Jan. 12. I believe we need to force place and then cancel on Jan.
12 at the borrower's expense however I'm getting push back because of a claim of evidence of insurance (again, the policy is not effective until
Jan. 12). The declaration page shows payment in full however we do not have an application nor proof of payment. Do we need to force place this interim
