HOEPA Consuling Fee-Added as Free Charge?

Answered by: 

When the bank is refinancing a loan and the loan is ​subject to ​H​OEPA, the customer has to go to consuling. After the LE is given, the customer comes back and says he cannot afford the $100.00 consuling fee. Can that fee be added as a fee charge or should it be added to the amount requested? If added to the amount requested, does this trigger a right of re​scission?

You are making a HOEPA loan to a consumer that can't afford a $100 fee? I think you need to review your underwriting criteria.
