We have a commercial loan on farmland with 12 outbuildings and a dwelling. Only one of the buildings (a small barn) is located in a flood zone that requires insurance. The loan amount is $500,000 and the appraiser valued this building at $70,000. Because only a small percentage of the secured collateral is in a flood zone, is flood insurance still required?
I'm new to the compliance world and brand new to this institution. I just received an external audit from a consulting firm that cited multiple MLA findings for obtaining applicant's MLA status for an exempt transaction (vehicle purchases). Our credit reports include the MLA check automatically. Are those legitimate findings? Do we need to turn off the MLA check that's part of the credit report?
We have backing lines attached to our Letters of Credit. Most of our backing lines are secured however, the letters of credit are unsecured. We have been told by our core vendor we must attach a backing line. Questions is, do we report the backing lines that are secured based on the collateral when reporting the call report code or do we report in 4A with the Letter of Credit that is unsecured? We haven't found any definitive answers but we want to make sure we are reporting correctly.
How might using barcoded loan documents impact operations?
