Program Overview: 

Printable Brochure

Are you ready to collect over 40 pieces of information for every mortgage loan you make?  And are you aware that many more loans will be on your LAR than there have been there in the past, while some loans that use to appear on the LAR will no longer appear?  The year 2018 will bring many changes. 

While the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) has existed for many years, recent regulatory activity will increase the potential for errors.  While in many ways the new rule is simpler, the volume and complexity of
information that will have to be collected will create great strains on your institution. Bankers, now more than ever, have to understand the HMDA rules. This seminar will discuss the changes. 

HMDA assumes that everyone lives in an absolutely cookie cutter world – which of course is not even close to
accurate.  While the new rule takes out some guesswork, it certainly does not solve every possible problem.  This
seminar is designed to help you get ready for 2018 and beyond.  We will not be focusing on the current rule (still effective for 2017 information gathering) – we will be focusing on the new rule.
