Everyone in the value chain of making mortgage decisions and fulfilling HMDA reporting requirements will need to be working in compliance with the new rules. If data isn't captured early enough, from the right transactions, and completely enough, costs of reporting may become higher than necessary and potentially, penalties may be incurred.
The Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) requires certain institutions to collect, report, and disclose information about their mortgage lending activity. This information is important because it:
- Helps show whether financial institutions are serving the housing needs of their communities
- Assists public officials in distributing public-sector investment to attract private investment to areas where it is needed and
- Assists with the identification of potentially discriminatory lending patterns and enforcement of antidiscrimination laws
Regulation C implements HMDA and sets out specific requirements for the collection, recording, reporting, and disclosure of mortgage lending information.
The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (Dodd-Frank Act) transferred rule-making authority for HMDA to the CFPB, effective July 2011. It also amended HMDA to add new data points and authorized the CFPB to require additional information from covered institutions. In July 2014, the CFPB proposed amendments to Regulation C to implement the Dodd-Frank Act changes, to require collection, recording, and reporting of addition al information to further HMDA's purposes, and to modernize the manner in which covered institutions report HMDA data. The CFPB issued its final rule amending Reg. C.
