Put Lender Credit in APR?

Answered by: 

Question: 
Our bank will occasionally give a lender credit to offset Origination Fees/Discount Points. In this case, would that lender credit be calculated into the APR, thus ultimately lowering the APR?
Answer: 

Yes, disclosures must reflect any pre-closing amendment in the agreement between the borrower and lender. When the lender reduces the interest rate, fees, or any other component of the FC, the APR is reduced.
