What is changing in HMDA?

The revised HMDA rules going into effect 1/1/2018 add new levels of complexity to the important regulation. The revised LAR will have 110 fields, increased from 39.

  • A complicated calculation to create "check digits" for the application number, now called the Uniform Loan Identifier.
  • Complex definitions that borrow from TRID.
  • Changes to the definition of dwelling including major changes to agricultural properties.
  • New institution coverage rules with a new “loan volume” test that could give some small lenders an exemption (but it is tricky).
  • New expanded loan coverage rules - different rules for consumer and business purpose loans - one more reason to learn how to determine business purpose loans!
  • Open end credit, including HELOCs and business open end lines of credit will be mandatory reporting
  • New loan purpose categories
  • New applicant demographic information (and a new name for Government Monitoring Information) that includes up to 5 ethnicity and 5 race choices.
  • Changes to preapproval request reporting
  • Changes to occupancy reporting
  • Mandatory denial reason reporting for all creditors
  • Many new fields – age, credit score, property address, construction method of building, prepayment penalty information, debt to income, term of loan, months until first rate change, existence of balloon payment, interest only or negative amortization terms, property value, land or no land for manufactured homes

And the list goes on and on! Data integrity, staff training and accountability, detailed procedures and a complete understanding of the rules with a solid data testing and submission process will be more important than ever!
