The 2018 modifications to HMDA were massive and many financial institutions are still dealing with the challenges of collecting data under the burdensome new requirements. The partial exemption provisions resulting from EGRRCPA were a blessing and a curse. Now with a key exemption being revoked by the CFPB in December of 2022. Knowing what to do and how to do it has never been more important.
Recent activity includes:
An advanced notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPR) was published on May 8, 2019.The ANPR solicited comments about the costs and benefits of collecting and reporting the data points the 2015 HMDA Rule added to Regulation C and certain preexisting data points that the 2015 HMDA Rule revised. Comments on the APRN were accepted until July 8, 2019. This rule is still pending.
On April 16, 2020 the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) published a final rule amending Regulation C to set the thresholds for reporting data about:
Closed-end mortgage loans, so that institutions originating fewer than 100 closed-end mortgage loans in either of the two preceding calendar years will not have to report such data effective July 1, 2020.
Open-end lines of credit at 200 open-end lines of credit effective January 1, 2022, upon the expiration of the current temporary threshold of 500 open-end lines of credit.
On December 7, 2022, the CFPB issued a Notice rescinding its 2020, Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) Final Rule changing the loan volume reporting threshold for closed-end mortgage loans. This comes on the heels of a ruling by the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, in September of this year. The ruling stated the CFPB did not have the authority to change the original reporting threshold from 25 to 100.
