Limited English Proficiency

Do we have to provide translators for loan applicants who do not speak English?

The Department of Housing and Urban Development has published guidance on Fair Housing Act Protections for Persons With Limited English Proficiency (LEP). The guidance applies to a financial institution’s role as a mortgage lender or as a landlord. The guidance does not require use of translators but it encourages lenders to adopt appropriate policies and procedures to assure appropriate treatment of LEP applicants.
