A: Breg%2Bimplementation Q: When do the new CFP rules go into effect? Page 1 of 14

2 A: The effective dates depend on loan type: For non-fha loans, the CFPB QM rule is effective for loans submitted to ULC on and after January 10, 2014; Under the FHA rule, the effective date is Case Numbers assigned on and after January 10, As a result, FHA loans submitted to ULC prior to January 10, 2014 but with case numbers assigned on or after January 10, 2014 MUST comply with the regulation. Ability to Repay (ATR)/Qualified Mortgage (QM) ATR Eligibility Q: How do we determine eligibility under ATR? A: The AUSs and the written guides of the GSEs, FNMA/FHLMC, as well as the agencies, FHA/VA/USDA, can be used for eligibility purposes. Accordingly, a covered transaction is a transaction that is eligible for purchase or guarantee by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, or eligible for guarantee or insurance by HUD, VA, or USDA, (and therefore is qualified if: the loan conforms to the standards set forth in the Fannie Mae Single-Family Selling Guide, or the Freddie Mac Single-Family Seller/Servicer Guide, or HUD Handbook , or VA Lender Handbook VA Pamphlet 26-7, or USDA Lender Handbook, as they relate to a borrower s ability to repay; or the loan receives an Approve/Eligible recommendation from Desktop Underwriter (DU); or an Accept and Eligible to Purchase recommendation from Loan Prospector (LP); or Accept/Eligible recommendation from GUS; or the loan receives a Refer recommendation from ((DU),(LP), or (GUS)) for reasons that are wholly unrelated to a borrower s ability to repay and other risk-related factors.) To rely upon an AUS recommendation to demonstrate qualified mortgage status the lender must have: accurately input the loan information into the automated system, and satisfied any accompanying requirements or conditions to the AUS approval that would otherwise invalidate the recommendation, unless the conditions are wholly unrelated to the borrower's ability to repay. The 2013 ATR Final Rule assumes that any recommendation used for compliance would be valid. As such, the above two criteria should be monitored to ensure validity. In particular, because the AUSs generate a list of conditions that must be met in support of the approval designation, those conditions related to the borrower s ability to repay must be satisfied to show eligibility for purchase, guarantee, or insurance. Q: If running a new client that doesn't have a property and I get a Refer/Ineligible, but then figure out how to get them qualified, does that hurt the client, or is this rule for Approval ONLY after they are under contract? A: Initial and/or subsequent Refer findings do not affect the borrower s ATR/QM eligibility as long as the final AUS run is Approve/Accept Eligible findings. Page 2 of 14

3 Q: What are the 8 ATR factors that must be considered when underwriting a loan? A: Lenders must consider the following eight underwriting factors when determining a consumer s ability to repay their loan: 1. Income/Assets 2. Employment Status 3. Monthly Payments on the Mortgage Loan 4. Monthly Payments on Simultaneous Loans Secured by the Same Property 5. Monthly payments on Mortgage Related Obligations 6. Current Debt Obligations 7. Monthly DTI or Residual Income 8. Credit History Q: Are any transactions exempt from the ATR requirements? A: CFPB s list of transactions that are exempt from the ability-to-repay requirements include: Reverse Mortgages; Bridge loans with a term of 12 months or less; Construction-to-permanent loans for 12 months or less for the construction phase; Extension of credit by a Housing Finance Agency; Extension of credit by Borrower Development Financial Institutions; Extension of credit made pursuant to a program authorized by sections 101 and 109 of the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008; Down payment Assistance through Secondary Financing Provider made pursuant to HUD s regulations; Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO) provided that the underwriter has entered into a commitment with a participating jurisdiction and is undertaking a project under the HOME program; A 501(c)(3) organization that secured no more than 200 dwellings in the prior calendar year to borrowers with income that did not exceed the low- and moderate-income household limit as established pursuant to section 102 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 (42 U.S.C. 5302(a)(20)) and the underwriter determines, in accordance with written procedures, that the borrower has a reasonable ability to repay the extension of credit. Qualifying Ratios Q: Can I originate loans over 43% DTI? A: Yes Conventional Loans Require AUS Approval Government Loans Require AUS Approval and/or documented compensating factors for elevated ratios. Q: What payment do I use to qualify a borrower on a simultaneous second mortgage or HELOC? A: A simultaneous transaction, such as a piggy-back or silent second, can influence a consumer s ATR. A transaction that recently closed or will close around the same time as the mortgage you are originating may not show up on the consumer s credit report. Page 3 of 14

4 If you know, or have reason to know, that there is going to be a simultaneous transaction around the time your transaction closes, you need to consider the monthly payment on that transaction in accordance with the following requirements: For simultaneous transactions that are not HELOCs - Your ATR assessment should include a monthly payment on the simultaneous loan that is calculated using the appropriate calculation method for adjustable-rate mortgages, interest-only loans, or other categories discussed above, depending on what type of simultaneous loan is made. For simultaneous transactions that are HELOCs - Your ATR assessment should include a monthly payment on the simultaneous loan that is calculated based on the amount of credit to be drawn down at or before consummation of the main loan. Employment/Income In accordance with the temporary provision of QM, the changes in this section are not in effect until January 10, 2021 or until the GSEs/Agencies update their underwriting guidelines to adopt the changes, whichever comes first. Q: Did Appendix Q change how we review a borrower s employment history or any types of income? A: Yes, there were changes to the following topics: Verifying Employment History (Employment Gaps) Returning to Work After an Extended Absence Establishing an Overtime and Bonus Income Earning Trend Income from Seasonal Employment Social Security Income Verifying Employment History (Employment Gaps) The broker must verify the borrower's employment for the most recent two full years, and the underwriter must require the borrower to: Explain any gaps in employment that span one or more months, and Indicate if he/she was in school or the military for the recent two full years, providing evidence supporting this claim, such as college transcripts, or discharge papers. Allowances can be made for seasonal employment, typical for the building trades and agriculture. Borrowers Returning to Work After an Extended Absence A borrower's income may be considered effective and stable when recently returning to work after an extended absence if he/she: Page 4 of 14

5 Is employed in the current job for six months or longer; and Can document a two year work history prior to an absence from employment using: o Traditional employment verifications; and/or o Copies of IRS Form W-2s or pay stubs. Note: An acceptable employment situation includes individuals who took several years off from employment to raise children, then returned to the workforce. Important: Situations not meeting the criteria listed above may not be used in qualifying. Extended absence is defined as six months. Establishing an Overtime and Bonus Income Earning Trend The broker must establish and document an earnings trend for overtime and bonus income. If either type of income shows a continual decline, the underwriter must document in writing a sound rationalization for including the income when qualifying the borrower. A period of more than two years must be used in calculating the average overtime and bonus income if the income varies significantly from year to year. Income from Seasonal Employment Seasonal income is considered uninterrupted, and may be used to qualify the borrower, if the underwriter documents that the borrower: Has worked the same job for the past two years, (Previously allowed for same line of work.), and Expects to be rehired the next season. Seasonal employment includes, but is not limited to: Umpiring baseball games in the summer; or Working at a department store during the holiday shopping season. Social Security Income Social Security income must be verified by a Social Security Administration benefit verification letter (sometimes called a proof of income letter, budget letter, benefits letter, or proof of award Page 5 of 14

6 letter ). If any benefits expire within the first full three years of the loan, the income source may not be used in qualifying. (Option for proof of receipt in lieu of the award letter has been removed.) Notes: -If the Social Security Administration benefit verification letter does not indicate a defined expiration date within three years of loan origination, the underwriter shall consider the income effective and likely to continue. Pending or current re-evaluation of medical eligibility for benefit payments is not considered an indication that the benefit payments are not likely to continue. -Some portion of Social Security income may be grossed up if deemed nontaxable by the IRS. FHA Streamline Refinance and VA IRRRL Q: Can we still do FHA Streamline Refinances and VA IRRRLs since they don t have income or asset verification? A: Yes, ULC will continue offering these products using the agency guidelines. Qualified Mortgages (QMs) Q: Does FHA/VA/USDA follow the same standards for QM as Conventional Mortgages? A: The Dodd-Frank Act required that FHA, VA and RHS/USDA publish their own standards for QM that align with the Ability-to-Repay criteria. On December 11, 2013, HUD released its final rule which defines a Qualified Mortgage (QM) that is insured, guaranteed or administered by HUD. The HUD Rule is similar to the CFPB QM Rule, but there are some differences: 1) The threshold for determining if a loan is a Safe Harbor QM or a Rebuttable Presumption QM is different (the Rule does not redefine HPML, it just sets safe harbor for FHA). Under HUD s rule: Safe Harbor Qualified Mortgages will be loans with APRs equal to or less than APOR +115 bps + Annual MIP rate. Rebuttable Presumption Qualified Mortgages will have an APR greater than APOR basis points (bps) + Annual Mortgage Insurance Premium (MIP) rate; 2) The effective dates are different: For non-fha loans, the CFPB QM rule is effective for loans submitted to ULC on and after January 10, 2014; Under the FHA rule, the effective date is Case Numbers assigned on and after January 10, As a result, FHA loans submitted to ULC prior to January 10, 2014 but with case numbers assigned on or after January 10, 2014 MUST comply with the regulation. So, it looks like HUD/FHA took into consideration that FHA loans would more often lose the safe harbor protections because the life-time annual MIP causes the APR to be higher. Page 6 of 14

7 HUD s QM definition, mortgage loans must: Require periodic payments without risky features; Have terms not to exceed 30 years; Limit upfront points and fees to no more than three percent with adjustments to facilitate smaller loans (except for Title I, Title II Manufactured Housing, Section 184,Section 184A loans and others as detailed below); and Be insured or guaranteed by FHA or HUD. On January 9, 2014, VA released VA Circular , Lender Compliance with CFPB requirements for ATR/QM Rule, to clarify lender actions regarding VA guaranteed loans. Until VA s rule on ATR/QM is in place, all lenders must comply with the requirements of TILA, as established by CFPB s ATR/QM Rule. The USDA/RHS has not released any additional information, to date. Q: Do CHFA and MBOH loans have to meet agency QM requirements. A: Yes Q: What do you mean by agency QM? A: Loans falling under the Agency or Temporary QM definition must meet the same requirements as General QM loans regarding prohibitions on risky features (negative-amortization, interest-only, and balloon-payment features), a maximum loan term of 30 years, and points-and-fees restrictions. They must also meet at least one of these additional requirements: Eligible for purchase or guarantee by the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) or the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac) while operating under federal conservatorship or receivership Eligible for Federal Housing Administration (FHA) insurance Implementation Tip: See FHA Final QM Rule. Eligible to be guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Eligible to be guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Eligible to be insured by the Rural Housing Service Eligibility for purchase or guarantee by a GSE or insurance or guarantee by an agency can be established based on the following methods: Valid recommendation from a GSE Automated Underwriting System (AUS) or an AUS that relies on an agency underwriting tool GSE or agency guidelines contained in official manuals Written agreements between a GSE or agency and the creditor (or a direct sponsor or aggregator of the creditor) Individual loan waivers from a GSE or agency To meet the Agency or Temporary QM definition, loans must be underwritten using the required guidelines of the entities above, including any relevant DTI guidelines. They do not have to meet the 43 percent debt-to-income ratio threshold that applies to General QM loans. Q: If we close a loan that doesn t meet the ATR/QM requirements, can we fix it post closing? A: No. Because all QM provisions require the loan to meet ATR/QM requirements at the time of closing, a loan cannot be retroactively made ATR/QM eligible after closing. Page 7 of 14

8 Higher Priced Mortgage Loans (HPMLs) Q: What is the definition of an HPML loan? A: The definition of an HPML loan varies based on loan type: Conventional Conforming - Conforming loans are HPML if the APR is >= to 1.5% above the APOR. Conventional Jumbo - Jumbo loans are HPML if the APR is >= to 2.5% above the APOR. (Some investors define a jumbo loan as HPML if the APR is >= to 1.5% above the APOR.) FHA To determine the qualified mortgage status of a loan, analyze whether the loan meets one of FHA s definitions of qualified mortgage. A Rebuttable Presumption Qualified Mortgage is a High Priced Mortgage Loan (HPML) and will have an APR greater than APOR basis points (bps) + on-going Mortgage Insurance Premium (MIP) rate. Legally, lenders that offer these loans are presumed to have determined that the borrower met the Ability-to-Repay standard. Borrowers can challenge that presumption, however, by proving that they did not, in fact, have sufficient income to pay the mortgage and their other living expenses. (Note: a Residual Income Evaluation is required on HPML loans.) A Safe Harbor Qualified Mortgages is NOT a High Priced Mortgage Loan (HPML) and will have an APR equal to or less than APOR bps + on-going MIP. These mortgages offer lenders the greatest legal certainty that they are complying with the Ability-to-Repay standard. Borrowers can still legally challenge their lender if they believe the loan does not meet the definitions of a Safe Harbor Qualified Mortgage. Q: What determines the APOR? Where does the percentage come from? A: The APOR, Average Prime Offer Rate, generates the spread between the Annual Percentage Rate (APR) and a survey-based estimate of APRs currently offered on prime mortgage loans of a comparable type utilizing the Average Prime Offer Rates- Fixed and Average Prime Offer Rates- Adjustable tables, action taken, amortization type, lock-in date, APR, fixed term (loan maturity) or variable term (initial fixed-rate period), and lien status. A broker s IT staff should be able to program their origination systems to pull in the rates directly from the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) website, just like they would search for any other treasury index value, like the LIBOR, Treasury Bill Index, COFI, MTA, etc., for ARMs, etc. for pricing or bring in FHA loan limits, etc. Additional, a broker can manually go out to the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) website every week, (the APOR changes on a weekly cycle), and obtain the rate. Q: Can I still originate a Higher Priced Mortgage Loan (HPML)? A: Yes. ULC will be doing loans that meet the Rebuttable Presumption, which would be a QM loan that is an HPML. The loan must still meet the max 3% Points and Fees test. (See Points and Fees) Page 8 of 14

9 Points and Fees Q: What figure do we base the 3% points and fees cap on? A: The new ATR/QM 3% Points and Fees cap is calculated using the amount financed from the TIL, not the note loan amount. Q: What fees are included in the Points and Fees calculation? A: Include all of the following: Up-front finance charges Except for some types of mortgage insurance premiums; some bona fide discount points; some bona fide third-party charges Certain loan originator compensation attributable to the transaction Real estate related fees ( Real estate related fees are excluded from points and fees if a) reasonable, b) creditor receives no direct or indirect compensation in connection with charge, and c) the charge is not paid to an affiliate of the creditor.) Includes fees for title-related services; notary and credit reports; property appraisals and inspections; amounts paid into escrow that are not otherwise included in the finance charge (except amounts for future payment of taxes). Premiums for credit insurance, credit property insurance, other life, accident, health or loss-ofincome insurance where the creditor is the beneficiary; and debt cancellation or suspension coverage payments. Maximum prepayment penalty Do NOT include: Bona fide 3 rd party charges not retained by lender, Originator or affiliate Government mortgage insurance premium Up to 2 bona fide discount points (See below) Interest rate for the bona fide discount points, starting adjusted rated offers a rebate and the consumer chooses to pay discount points the amount of the points actually paid are the maximum that can be excluded up to the two points Fees for title insurance, title examination, property survey Document preparation fees Amount required to be paid into escrow, if not otherwise included in the finance charge Pre-consummation flood and pest inspection fees Appraisal and credit report fees if charged to all applicants Individual MLO Compensation (Broker) Real estate related fees, generally Q: Does the 3% points and fees limit apply to lower loan amounts too? A: For a loan to be a QM, one of the requirements is that the points and fees may not exceed the pointsand-fees caps. The points-and-fees caps are higher for smaller loans. 3 percent of the total loan amount for a loan greater than or equal to $100,000 $3,000 for a loan greater than or equal to $60,000 but less than $100,000 Page 9 of 14

10 5 percent of the total loan amount for a loan greater than or equal to $20,000 but less than $60,000 $1,000 for a loan greater than or equal to $12,500 but less than $20,000 8 percent of the total loan amount for a loan less than $12,500 The dollar amounts listed above will be adjusted annually for inflation and published each year in the commentary to Regulation Z. Higher thresholds are provided for loan amounts under $100,000. Seller/Lender Paid Fees Q: Are seller paid fees included in the 3% points and fees calculation for ATR/QM? A: If the seller pays a fee that would normally be included in the 3% points and fees limit, with exception of the broker compensation, it can be excluded from the 3% points and fees calculation. Note: Fees paid by a third party, other than the seller, can only be excluded from the points and fees calculation if they are already excluded from the points and fees limit. Discount Points Q: Can we exclude discount points from the 3% Points and Fees limitation? A: Bona fide discount points may be excluded if they meet certain requirements: Exclude up to 2 bona fide discount points if the interest rate before the discount does not exceed the APOR for a comparable transaction by more than 1 percentage point; or Exclude up to 1 bona fide discount point if the interest rate before the discount does not exceed the APOR for a comparable transaction by more than 2 percentage points. Note that a discount point is bona fide if it reduces the consumer s interest rate by an amount that reflects established industry practices, such as secondary mortgage market norms. An example is the pricing in the to-be-announced market for mortgage-backed securities. Mortgage Insurance Q: Is mortgage insurance included in the Points and Fees limitations? A: It depends on the type of mortgage insurance: Borrower-paid rate programs Include Exclude Monthly Premiums Refundable Single Premiums Nonrefundable Single Premiums Annual Premiums Upfront Premium Split Premiums Monthly Premium Lender-Paid Rate Programs Single Premiums Page 10 of 14

11 Monthly Premiums (Not Eligible) Q: Can we use over par pricing to pay for single premium MI and exclude the premium from the points and fees? A: ULC s attorneys feel that defending the Borrower Paid MI, with a lender credit for the premium on the HUD, is questionable. Effective immediately, ULC now has an LPMI rate disclosed program option in Product & Pricing on our website. The MI in this case is not disclosed on the GFE, nor on the HUD-1. Seller paid MI is excluded from the points and fees. Q: Is seller paid MI reduced from points and fees? A: Yes Residual Income Evaluation (RIE) Q: When is a residual income evaluation required? A: ULC will determine if this is needed. Q: How is residual income defined for purposes of ATR/QM? A: Residual income for purposes of the RIE is defined as the total gross qualifying income for the loan minus the gross monthly debts of all borrowers on the loan. (Include non-borrowing spouse debts in community property states.) Note: If any borrower has non-taxable income being grossed up for qualifying, include the grossed up amount n the gross qualifying income. HOEPA Rule (Homebuyer Counseling Disclosure/List) Q: What is the minimum number of agencies that should be provided to the borrower on HUD approved counseling agencies list? A: Broker must provide a list of at least 10 HUD approved counseling agencies located nearest to the borrower s current zip code within 3-days of application. Q: When am I required to provide a copy of HUD approved counseling agencies to my borrower? A: Broker must provide a list of at least 10 HUD approved counseling agencies located nearest to the borrower s current zip code within 3-days of application. Q: On a loan with 2 borrowers who have 2 different addresses, what zip code should be used to pull the HUD Approved Counseling List? A: The primary borrower s address is required to be used to pull the HUD Approved Counseling list, however, it would be advisable to send a relevant counseling list to each borrower. Q: Does the Notice of Homeownership Counseling Agencies disclosure requirement under the HOEPA Rule apply to every loan, not just HOEPA loans? Page 11 of 14

12 A: Yes. Even though this provision was issued in the HOEPA Rule, it is actually a RESPA change. The counseling list must be provided on all of our loans. A borrower will only need to actually take a counseling course if the borrower is a first time home buyer with a negative amortization loan. Q: What loan types are covered under the new HOEPA tests? A: See table below: Transaction Type Covered Exempt Purchase, Refinance, HELOC (Covered if secured by a principal dwelling.) HELOCs Manufactured Housing Loans Initial Construction Loans Loans made by small creditors predominantly serving rural or underserved areas (Exempt from balloon prohibition if other criteria are met.) Bridge Loans (12-months or less) (Exempt from balloon prohibition.) Timeshares (Exempt to the extent it is not a principal dwelling.) Reverse Mortgages Loan Originator Rule ECOA Valuation Rule/TILA HPML Appraisal Rule Note: The HPML Appraisal Rule only applies to Non-QM HPML loans. Because ULC only funds QM loans, the HPML Appraisal Rule, as it relates to disclosure and property flip definition and requirements, will not apply to our business. (ULC will continue to follow the ECOA disclosure requirements, which do allow a borrower to waive the 3-day waiting period after receiving a copy of their appraisal/valuation in favor of receiving a copy at the loan closing.) US Bank - The requirement for delivery of the appraisal 3 days prior to closing may not be waived on HPML loans. Q: When does the new TILA HPML Rule go into effect? A: The TILA/HPML Rule becomes effective for RESPA Applications dated on or after January 18, 2014, and must be applied to Non-QM HPML loans. (Note: Reverse mortgages are exempt from this new rule.) Q: Does the new TILA HPML Rule affect what appraisal form we must use? A: No. Full Interior/Exterior appraisals are required on all non-qm HPML loans, but because ULC does not close/fund non-qm loans there will be no change to how we determine which appraisal form to request. Page 12 of 14

13 Q: What is the definition of a flip for HPML purposes? A: The seller acquired the property within 180-days prior to the date of the purchase contract, AND The new purchase price exceeds the seller s acquisition cost by: 10% if the seller acquired the property within 90-days of the contract date, OR 20% if the seller acquired the property between 91 and 180-days prior to the contract Q: Is it true the new TILA HPML Rule requires a second appraisal on flip transactions, even on conventional loans? A: Yes. Two full appraisals are required if on a primary residence transaction: The seller acquired the property within 180-days prior to the date of the purchase contract, AND The new purchase price exceeds the seller s acquisition cost by: o 10% if the seller acquired the property within 90-days of the contract date, OR o 20% if the seller acquired the property between 91 and 180-days prior to the contract date. Q: When two appraisals are required for a flip transaction, can the same appraiser do both appraisals? A: No Q: Are there additional requirements for the second appraisal on a flip transaction? A: Yes. One of the two required appraisals, (doesn t have to be the second appraisal), must include an analysis of: The difference between the previous price and the new purchase price Changes in market conditions between the date the seller acquired the property and the date of the new purchase agreement, and Any improvements made to the property between the date the seller acquired the property and the date of the new purchase agreement. Q: Can the borrower be charged for the second appraisal on a flip transaction? A: No Q: Who can pay for the 2 nd appraisal fee on HPML flip loans? A: The second appraisal can be paid by the seller (preference), or the real estate agents. (See disclosure at the beginning of this section.) Q: Does the second appraisal requirement on a flip transaction supersede FHA s second appraisal requirement? A: You must follow the most restrictive of the two rules. (See disclosure at the beginning of this section.) Page 13 of 14

14 Q: What is an example of promptly delivery of a valuation? A: Sending a copy of an appraisal within a week of completion with sufficient time before consummation (or account opening for open-end credit). On day 15 after receipt of the application, the creditor s underwriting department reviews an appraisal and determines it is acceptable. One week later, the creditor sends a copy of the appraisal to the applicant. The applicant actually receives the copy more than three business days before the date of consummation (or account opening). The creditor has provided the copy of the appraisal promptly upon completion. (See disclosure at the beginning of this section.) Q: What is an example of not promptly delivering a valuation? A: Delay in sending an appraisal. On day 12 after receipt of the application, the creditor s underwriting department reviews an appraisal and determines it is acceptable. Although the creditor has determined the appraisal is complete, the creditor waits to provide a copy to the applicant until day 42, when the creditor schedules the consummation (or account opening) to occur on day 50. The creditor has not provided the copy of the appraisal promptly upon completion. Q: What happens if we have multiple versions of an appraisal or other valuations? A: The reference to all appraisals and other written valuations does not refer to all versions of the same appraisal or other valuation. If a creditor has received multiple versions of an appraisal or other written valuation, the creditor is required to provide only a copy of the latest version received. If, however, a creditor already has provided a copy of one version of an appraisal or other written valuation to an applicant, and the creditor later receives a revision of that appraisal or other written valuation, then the creditor also must provide the applicant with a copy of the revision Q: If the valuation will not come in to satisfy the delivery requirement of 3 days, can I obtain a wavier? A1: Yes, a waiver may be obtained if a valid reason for non-delivery applies. The waiver must still be provided 3 days prior to closing. A2: Illinois loans will always require the borrower to receive the appraisal at least 24 hours before closing. No wavier can be obtained for the 24 hour delivery. Page 14 of 14
