HMDA - Number of key fields - Out of the 110 data fields, I need to verify the number of key fields for the HMDA Data Fields. I think that the number is 37 but I just want to be certain.
Reporting of purchased loans on HMDA. We have started purchasing loans and now need to report them on HMDA. For the section on Loan Amt - it specifies if it is a home purchase loan that we purchased 0 we enter the unpaid principal balance of the loan at time of purchase but it does not reference specifically what we use as the balance Original or unpaid prin balance)if the purchased loan is a home improvement or a refi. We have a consultant tells us that we report them all (purchase, refi or h/i) with the unpaid principle balance but in reading the HMDA guidelines and regs I am not sure if that is correct. Can you help clarify this for me?
Are rate spreads to be reported on the HMDA LAR only for primary residence loans?
When completing the Action Date of a refi loan on the HMDA LAR, should the actual closing date of the loan document or funding date following the right of rescission be used?
If a person borrows money to do home improvements to a home they do not own but will be renting; is that reportable as home improvement - not owner occupied? We classify and report all of our unsecured home improvement loans.
When filling out the LAR on a secondary home, how do you report the occupancy, owner occupied or not?
If an applicant starts to apply for a mortgage loan online and early in the process authorizes a credit bureau to be pulled but then never submits the application, are we required to do anything with the information such as send a letter of notice of incomplete application and report on HMDA LAR or is this considered an inquiry that never resulted in a HMDA application?
If two individuals own a dwelling and have a loan that is secured by the dwelling and one purchases the other's interest in the property, with a dwelling secured loan, is that reported on the HMDA LAR as a Refinance or a Purchase?
I am unsure if I should report on my HMDA LAR several different loans we have done. The first has the collateral of a stock certificate but the loan was done to purchase a home, another has a perpetual loan agreement as collateral but was done to purchase a home, the last was done by a church to purchase a home they are using as a group home which isn't really considered anyone's primary residence.
Home equity loan, primary residence is collateral, improvements to rental property is purpose. When reporting for HMDA is it owner occupied or non-owner occupied?
