The public HMDA LAR could be released as soon as next week. Are you prepared for Fair Lending and HMDA compliance with this accelerated timeline? Here are 7 videos to help you learn and prepare.
You may think that just because you filed HMDA earlier this month, you're finished with Home Mortgage Disclosure Act and Fair Lending compliance for a while. With the prospect of 2017 HMDA LAR being released as soon as next week, on April 1, HMDA and Fair Lending remain top priorities.
Not only are media outlets using the public HMDA data more publicly in their reporting (that recent Reveal report we discussed in last week's post is still gaining momentum and educating consumers about Redlining), but some regulators appear to be implementing even more strict Fair Lending oversight as the prospect of potential changes to the CFPB looms. When that public HMDA LAR hits, we can expect a flurry of news about Fair Lending - and possibly even more scrutiny.
In these 7 videos about HMDA compliance, we answer some of the most common questions about the new HMDA rule, and what to do after filing your LAR.
