Do you know when the new revised Uniform Real Estate Application 1003 will be issued?
Does a mortgage lender's business card require an Equal Housing Lender logo?
Our commercial applicant submitted an application and we issued a (expression of interest) EOI / Term sheet. The loan officer is in
communication with them and is asking for items we require to underwrite the loan. It is taking more than 60 days to receive all the items. They are
coming in piece by piece. When are we required to send a notice of incompleteness? I was understanding that an NOIA would not be required since
the application is still not complete and we are working with the applicant, but others are saying it should be sent now.
Are there any specific requirements or restrictions when it comes to lending to a non-US Citizen?
For banks that provide combined ECOA-FCRA disclosures, is it standard practice to “Check the 1st Box” and provide FCRA credit score information if the decline reason is not based on the consumer report, but some other factor? (i.e. insufficient collateral, product not offered, out of lending area) Do other banks do this?
We understand that we do NOT have to “Check the 1st box” and provide credit score information if it was NOT used in making the adverse decision, but what would be the risk to provide this information in the above cases?
I have a client (a lender) who orders their credit reports from "XYZ Data" and when a loan is declined, they list Equifax on their Adverse Action
Notice (with appropriate address and phone number) and they have now been told that because "XYZ Data" is considered a reseller of credit under the
FCRA 603(u) that they should also list XYZ Data (along with its name and telephone number) on the Adverse Action Notice. Is this true?
What regulatory disclosure is required for refinancing a commercial mortgage loan?
I know Reg B talks about a lender not discriminating when collecting on a debt. What other regulation talks about a lender fairly treating a customer during collection procedures? Fair Debt Collection Practices Act? I think a lender collecting their own debt is exempt as a "debt collector" definition.
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.
If an applicant chooses not to provide the borrower demographic data do we still collect it based on visual observation and surname?
