Course description

Financial Institutions have been calculating the total of points and fees for

years to determine whether a transaction is a high-cost mortgage loan (Section

32). Most lenders have few, if any, high-cost mortgages so calculating the

points and fees has not been a high priority.



But now the game

has changed.



The calculation of points and fees is changing. The

calculation is both more important and more complex.



The increased

importance of the calculation is attributable to:

  • The volume of high-cost mortgages is expected to increase as a result of the new calculation and lower thresholds.
  • The number will soon be reported on the HMDA LAR.
  • The number will be used to calculate a fee cap for certain options to verify the borrower's ability-to-repay.

The increased complexity is

attributable to an expansion of the definition of the total of points and fees.

As a result it is not enough to know how to calculate the number; now it is also

important to understand how to manage the number.

WHY?
The calculation of points and fees has never

been more important or complex. This program explains when and how the

points and fees are calculated and how to manage the number.


Participants receive a detailed manual that serves as a handbook long

after the program is completed.
