Where to List Doc Preparation Fee on GFE

Answered by: 

Question: 
We have just had a compliance exam and they said that we have included the document preparation fee as a prepaid finance charge. We are listing it on the GFE in origination fees. Is this not right.? If not, where do you put it on the GFE?
Answer: 

You are correct. Document preparation fees would be listed on the bank origination fee line on the GFE. However, under Regulation Z they would be excluded from the finance charge. Don't mix the RESPA and Regulation Z requirements, as they are not the same.
