Home Improvements, New Improvements, and HMDA Reporting

Answered by: 

Question: 
Client is requesting a $13,000 home improvement loan paying off an unsecured $3,000 home improvement loan with additional funds of $10,000 for new improvements. This is not reportable in 2004 as a refinance. Should it be reported as a home improvement loan or not reported under HMDA at all.
Answer: 

Yes, this should be treated as a refinance (assuming it is secured by a dwelling). If it is not secured by a dwelling, the loan must be classified as a home improvement loan or else it is not HMDA reportable.
