Understanding the deluge of new mortgage regulations is proving to be a monstrous challenge. Figuring out what is covered and then what is required takes hours of concentration and mental gymnastics most of us don't possess. But what about what is not covered?

It's easy to say that traditionally, most of the mortgage rules exclude home equity lines of credit. They're a separate animal, after all. And in fact, they're indeed exempt from the ability-to-repay rules. But wait a minute - the new rules expanding the reach of HOEPA and Section 32 don't exclude HELOCs anymore! The rules are not uniform at all; some loans are covered by certain provisions, and others are not, and the types of loans within this maze of requirements, exceptions, and exemptions are not equal.

Some other examples of differing exceptions and exemptions, you ask? How about these:
  • Certain temporary or bridge loans, or construction loans, are exempt from only some of the ability-to-repay obligations, such as the repayment ability, Qualified Mortgage, and balloon payment sections.
  • Balloon loans generally are exempted from being considered QMs, except for those creditors that can meet the "rural or underserved" test. Also, to make it more fun, QM balloon loans are exempt from the general DTI restriction.
  • Mortgage loans having DTI ratios above 43% cannot be Qualified Mortgages: except when the alternative GSE or government agency test is met.
  • QMs generally enjoy a safe harbor when the lender's ability-to-repay is challenged; except when the loan is considered a higher-priced mortgage loan.
  • Fees and charges excluded from the finance charge calculation are excluded from the "points and fees" test for determining whether a loan is a QM, except where the fee is paid to an affiliate of the creditor, for instance.
  • Escrows are required for certain loans if the APR exceeds a threshold, except if the creditor meets the small creditor in a rural or underserved area test.
  • New appraisal requirements apply to non-QM higher-priced mortgage loans, except if the loan is a construction loan, a bridge loan, or a reverse mortgage.
There are many more, and the ones listed aren't complete as it is. But it gives you an idea of the complexity in trying to figure out exactly what rule applies to what type of loan. We'll provide as much helpful information we can to allow you to properly classify how you must treat various loan types.

This session is designed for anyone involved in the mortgage loan process, including compliance professionals, auditors, legal staff, management, product development, and others.
