RESPA - is it a thing of value if a Realtor puts on their open house flyer a preferred lender's info?
Which regulator issues the most enforcement actions?
Which violations result in the highest penalties?
What is the difference between an enforcement action and a consent decree?
Our borrower routinely said it was OK to text them and we have that screen capture in our records. Can I contact them now to collect the debt via text messages?
If a loan is denied due to collateral value, would the adverse action notice include that an outside source was used in the decision and the outside
source was the appraiser? I believe the appraiser would NOT be an outside source for this purpose.
In a scenario where the appraised value came in low, would an appraisal be considered as 3rd party information?
If you deny an application because the applicant cannot get clear title on the property what reason would you use on the denial notice (would you create an “Other” reason)?
If you do a preapproval/prequalification where you have five pieces of information (not the property location) and the customer is approved for an amount but the customer never comes back to the bank. What is the proper procedure in this situation?
In regards to the check box options on an adverse action notice, as a commercial lender, I would like to add “Length of time in business is too short” as we do deny credit to many newly established companies (per our credit policy), so my question is this: Can I create my own reason(s) or are there a specific set of reasons that I need to adhere to? Where does ‘length of time in business too short’ (or verbiage to that effect) fit on an adverse action notice?
