I am trying to find out what the federal regulators would require we have on a Conditional Approval Letter issued to a borrower. Like the FDIC logo, Equal Housing, etc. What does ECOA require be on this letter?
We have an Ag Loan that has five parcels secured by one loan. When running the flood determination, it shows that two of the parcels are in a SFHA. Out of the five, the two that are in the SFHA have structures on them, a mobile home (permanent foundation) a dwelling, and two equipment/storage sheds. We have flood insurance on the mobile home and the dwelling. My question is are we suppose to have a separate policy for each and every structure on the parcel or can we go by the FDICs special situation clause where it states for multiple structures that secure a loan FEMA does permit borrowers to insure nonresidential buildings using one policy with a schedule separately listing each building or do we have to have a policy for each storage building?
What were the FDIC lending limits for bank loans to individuals during 2009-2010?
Have you heard of the obvious error rule? The FDIC has recently completed a compliance exam and mentioned the obvious error rule in relation to the APR calculation on open-end credit.
We are looking to purchase a portfolio of 2nd mortgages from an unregulated lender, who was not following flood insurance regulatory processes. As a regulated institution could we be cited for flood insurance violations by FDIC even though we did not originate these loans?
Do we have to/should we have our clients sign/acknowledge that they received a copy our our new Privacy Notice that went into effect 2010? My question stems from a recent FDIC exam.
We have an upcoming FDIC Compliance Exam. In the pre-exam questioning, I was asked if we provide a "Conforming Loan Payment Notice". I thought this was just for the credit card payments but was told that this also involves "payments on residences". I have searched for some type of guidance and have only found information that pertains to credit cards and helocs. In "googling" the topic, I have found several banks that have the disclosure on their website. This is telling me that I have certainly missed something. Could you give me some guidance or somewhere to look further?
It is my understanding that a Bank Lending Officer does not need to be licensed under the SAFE Act, is that correct? We are regulated by the FDIC.
We are an FDIC regulated bank. When do we not collect the government monitoring information on a real estate loan application?
We qualify loan applicants based on gross income. Our credit officer says that tax free income from SSI or VA Disability is the gross income and shouldn't be grossed up. I say the income is net and should be. Who's right? If we don't gross tax SSI up, are we discriminating?
