CFPB Finalizes Update to Home Mortgage Disclosure Act

Additionally, he has written B2B marketing copy for Dallas-based companies such as AT&T. An East Texas Native, he also works part-time as a photographer. Tagged with: CFPB HMDA The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau recently issued a rule which finalizes certain aspects of its May 2019 Notice of Proposed Rulemaking under the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA). It extends for two years the current temporary threshold for collecting and reporting data about open-end lines of credit under HMDA. The rule also clarifies partial exemptions from certain HMDA requirements which Congress added in the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act (EGRRCPA).For open-end lines of credit, the rule extends for another two years, until January 1, 2022, the current temporary coverage threshold of 500 open-end lines of credit. For data collection years 2020 and 2021, financial institutions that originated fewer than 500 open-end lines of credit in either of the two preceding calendar years will not need to collect and report data with respect to open-end lines of credit.For the partial exemptions under the EGRRCPA, the rule incorporates into Regulation C the clarifications from the Bureau’s August 2018 interpretive and procedural rule. This final rule further effectuates the burden relief for smaller lenders provided by the EGRRCPA by addressing certain issues relating to the partial exemptions that the August 2018 rule did not address.This rule finalizes the above aspects of the May 2019 Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, which also proposed raising the permanent coverage thresholds for closed-end mortgage loans and open-end lines of credit.  On July 31, 2019, the Bureau reopened the comment period until October 15, 2019 for aspects of the May 2019 Notice of Proposed Rulemaking related to raising the permanent coverage thresholds. The Bureau intends to issue a separate final rule in 2020 addressing these thresholds.Earlier this year, the CFPB issued three new policies to promote innovation and compliance: the No-Action Letter (NAL) Policy; Trial Disclosure Program (TDP) Policy; and the Compliance Assistance Sandbox (CAS) Policy.According to the CFPB, regulatory uncertainty can “hinder the development” of innovative products and services that benefit consumers.NALs provide increased regulatory certainty through a statement that the CFPB will not bring a supervisory or enforcement action against a company for providing a product or service under certain circumstances.“The new NAL Policy improves on the Bureau’s 2016 NAL Policy by having, among other things, a more streamlined review process focusing on the consumer benefits and risks of the product or service in question.” the CFPB says.

In fact, the disproportion between men and women as they face housing impacts due to unemployment, housing tenure, and child care, is so blatant that the recession has now been dubbed the “she-cession.” ( A term reportedly coined by labor economist Armine Yalnizyan.)This is especially frustrating for the female workforce that had been fighting successfully to narrow the gender gap in myriad areas during recent years. Now, this pandemic-led recession threatens to wipe much of that hard-earned progress away. According to Zillow’s report, this year began strong—with more women than ever holding their own in the workforce. Women were also starting to earn more income, and women-headed households were even increasing in value. All signs pointed to go.However, the arrival of COVID-19 to the scene not only paused that progress, but it very likely looks to have sent women several steps back, especially in the areas of housing and employment. Data supporting this assertion includes the fact that unemployment claims for women shot up 1,368% (year over year) at the height of the COVID-19 recession. Also, just this past month, a shocking statistic of 80% of those dropping out of the workforce were reported to be women.More bad news on this same front shows data revealing that renters, who have been known to be the hardest group hit by the recession in the area of housing, are far more likely to be women. And among those women renters, almost half reported spending almost a third of their income (30% at least) on housing costs.”Beyond the social and cultural pressures on women to be the primary caretakers in their households, there are significantly more female-headed households led by single parents,” Zillow reported. “Female-headed renter households are more than twice as likely as male-headed renter households to be single parents—70% of mothers who are household heads are single parents, compared to only 32% of fathers.”Reports suggest the “double hit” of being more likely to work in industries affected by layoffs, and, with more schools eschewing in-school education versus virtual, online studies, and a great number of child care facilities shuttering their doors (all due to concerns over the current pandemic), many more working mothers than fathers have reported being out of work due to the rising commitment and need for child care coverage.
