We’ve entered a new paradigm in mortgage lending. Unlike the historical risks to lending like rate fluctuation or other market changes, lenders today know the greatest risk to their business is compliance. Those market-based storms of yester-year were weathered by the most prepared lenders in the space. Now, the compliance-based storms of today bring new risks, which must be properly prepared for in order to stay successful. Fortunately, this seemingly uphill battle is not yours to fight alone. The fast approaching Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) Regulation C changes to the Loan Application Report (LAR) bring with it over 30 new data points to collect and report on, and staying compliant can seem hard, but it doesn’t have to be. With proper preparation and technology, even the most complex regulations can become more approachable – almost, dare we say, easy.
