1 ECOA & TILA APPRAISAL RULES Appraisal Customer Access Issues Managing the Dodd-Frank Act Appraisal Process Who owns the appraisal or valuation? For which party or parties is the appraisal performed? Patti Blenden Financial Solutions February 2014 Issue resolution: ECOA stepped in to permit sharing. 1 2 Dodd Frank Act Appraisal Amendments The CFPB must promulgate regulations that implement changes to the Equal Credit Opportunity Act ( ECOA ) The CFPB, federal banking regulators (FRB, FDIC, NCUA and OCC), and the FHFA ( Agencies ) must prescribe regulations to implement the appraisal requirements for higher-risk mortgages The Agencies must establish, by regulation, minimum AMC standards The Agencies, in consultation with the Appraisal Subcommittee and the Appraisal Standards Board of the Appraisal Foundation, must promulgate regulations regarding quality control standards for AVMs The Agencies may issue regulations that ensure the portability of appraisals between lenders for loans secured by the borrower s primary residence The Agencies may issue rules amending section 1110 of FIRREA to change the time period creditors will need to review appraisals Existing ECOA Appraisal Rule Consumer has a right to a copy of appraisal Creditor has two options for compliance 1. Notify the consumer of this right and provide copy only after receiving a consumer s written request OR 2. Automatically provide consumer a copy of appraisal

2 ECOA & TILA APPRAISAL RULES Confusing Existing ECOA Provisions Does the obligation cover other forms of valuations? Do you only have to provide appraisals that the applicant has paid for? Rules on providing appraisal reports (a) Providing appraisals. A creditor shall provide a copy of an appraisal report used in connection with an application for credit that is to be secured by a lien on a dwelling. A creditor shall comply with either paragraph (a)(1) or (a)(2) of this section. (1) Routine delivery. A creditor may routinely provide a copy of an appraisal report to an applicant (whether credit is granted or denied or the application is withdrawn). (2) Upon request. A creditor that does not routinely provide appraisal reports shall provide a copy upon an applicant's written request. Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA) Regulation B Effective January 18, ECOA and Regulation B Fair lending law ECOA prohibits creditors from discriminating against credit applicants on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, age (provided the applicant has the capacity to enter into a binding contract); because all or part of the applicant's income derives from any public assistance program; or because the applicant has in good faith exercised any right under the Consumer Credit Protection Act. Law applies to both consumer and commercial transactions Only new requirement in the January 2014 mortgage reform amendments that applies to commercial transactions! The New ECOA Rule Effective for applications received on or after January 18, 2014 Notice of right to a copy Copy of appraisal and other written valuations Only required for 1 st liens Customer service issue: HELOCs and refinances? Timing of delivery Applicants can waive advance copy in some cases

3 ECOA & TILA APPRAISAL RULES Reg B (a) NEW RULE OLD RULE ECOA s Appraisal Rules A creditor shall provide an applicant a copy of all appraisals and other written valuations developed in connection with an application for credit that is to be secured by a first lien on a dwelling. A creditor shall provide a copy of each such appraisal or other written valuation promptly upon completion, or three business days prior to consummation of the transaction (for closed end credit) or account opening (for open end credit), whichever is earlier. 9 A creditor shall provide a copy of an appraisal report used in connection with an application for credit that is to be secured by a lien on a dwelling. A creditor shall comply with either paragraph (a)(1) or (a)(2) of this section. (a)(1) Routine delivery. A creditor may routinely provide a copy of an appraisal report to an applicant (whether credit is granted or denied or the application is withdrawn). OR (a)(2) Upon request. A creditor that does not routinely provide appraisal reports shall provide a copy upon an applicant's written request. 10 Fundamental Issue: Whatever the Creditor uses to establish the collateral property s value and the effect that value has on loan terms is of interest to the borrower Must share with applicant even if you don t use the appraisal or valuation or you only use it for a limited purpose Covered Transactions Business or commercial credit when it is secured by a first lien on a dwelling (as opposed to TILA, business credit is covered by ECOA and Regulation B). Open- or closed-end loans Reverse mortgages Temporary loans (i.e., bridge and construction loans) Loss mitigation activities (to the extent otherwise subject to Reg. B) Renewals (unless using a previously developed valuation)

4 ECOA & TILA APPRAISAL RULES New ECOA Rules Right to Receive a Copy of Appraisals A. Require creditors to notify applicants within three business days of receiving an application of their right to receive a copy of appraisals developed. B. Require creditors to provide applicants a copy of each appraisal and other written valuation promptly upon its completion or three business days before consummation (for closed-end credit) or account opening (for open-end credit), whichever is earlier. C. Permit applicants to waive the timing requirement for providing these copies. Applicants who waive the timing requirement must be provided all required material at or prior to consummation or account opening, or no later than 30 days after the creditor determines the transaction will not be consummated or account will not be opened. D. Prohibit creditors from charging for the copy of appraisals and other written valuations, but permit creditors to charge applicants reasonable fees for the cost of the appraisals or other written valuations unless applicable law provides otherwise. Creditors must notify applicants within 3 business days of receiving an application of their right to receive a copy of all written appraisals developed in connection with the application This provision is generally consistent with the proposed approach to the 3-business-day timing requirements for TILA-RESPA disclosures in the 2012 TILA-RESPA Proposal, and will be linked to that disclosure as the rulemakings are finalized Form C 9 Sample Disclosure of Right to Receive a Copy of Appraisals NEW RULE We may order an appraisal to determine the property s value and charge you for this appraisal. We will promptly give you a copy of any appraisal, even if your loan does not close. You can pay for an additional appraisal for your own use at your own cost. ALWAYS GIVE NOTICE AND COPY OLD RULE You have the right to a copy of the appraisal report used in connection with your application for credit. If you wish a copy, please write to us at the mailing address we have provided. We must hear from you no later than 90 days after we notify you about the action taken on your credit application or you withdraw your application. [In your letter, give us the following information:] GIVEN ONLY IF NOT ROUTINELY PROVIDING COPY OF APPRAISAL (b)(3) Valuation The term valuation means any estimate of the value of a dwelling developed in connection with an application for credit

5 ECOA & TILA APPRAISAL RULES (b)(3) Valuation Examples Commentary Examples of valuations include but are not limited to: i. A report prepared by an appraiser (whether or not licensed or certified) including the appraiser's estimate or opinion of the property s value. ii. A document prepared by the creditor s staff that assigns value to the property. iii. A report approved by a government-sponsored enterprise for describing to the applicant the estimate of the property s value developed pursuant to the proprietary methodology or mechanism of the government-sponsored enterprise. iv. A report generated by use of an automated valuation model to estimate the property s value. v. A broker price opinion prepared by a real estate broker, agent, or sales person to estimate the property s value. Attachments and exhibits. The term valuation includes any attachments and exhibits that are an integrated part of the valuation (b)(3) NOT Valuations Commentary Other documentation. Not all documents that discuss or restate a valuation constitute a valuation Examples of documents that discuss the valuation or may reflect its value but are not valuations include, but are not limited to: i. Internal documents that merely restate the estimated value of the dwelling contained in an appraisal or written valuation being provided to applicant. ii. Governmental agency statements of appraised value that are publically available. iii. Publicly-available lists of valuations (such as published sales prices or mortgage amounts, tax assessments, and retail price ranges). iv. Manufacturers invoices for manufactured homes Existing (f) Application Application means an oral or written request for an extension of credit that is made in accordance with procedures used by a creditor for the type of credit requested. The term application does not include the use of an account or line of credit to obtain an amount of credit that is within a previously established credit limit. A completed application means an application in connection with which a creditor has received all the information that the creditor regularly obtains and considers in evaluating applications for the amount and type of credit requested (including, but not limited to, credit reports, any additional information requested from the applicant, and any approvals or reports by governmental agencies or other persons that are necessary to guarantee, insure, or provide security for the credit or collateral). The creditor shall exercise reasonable diligence in obtaining such information. 20 Renewals and Modifications? Requirements also apply to any application for renewal of an existing extension of credit to the extent that the creditor develops appraisals in connection with the renewal. Commentary Renewals. New rule to provide copy applies when applicant requests renewal of an existing extension of credit and the creditor develops a new appraisal or other written valuation. New rule to provide copy does not apply if creditor uses appraisals and other written valuations previously developed for prior extension of credit. Best Practice: Consider delivering copy anyway beginning in January

6 ECOA & TILA APPRAISAL RULES Developed in Connection With (b)(2) Dwelling Specific to the current application for credit Applies whether credit is approved or denied or if the application is incomplete or withdrawn Even if a creditor does not use a valuation, the creditor must still provide the valuation to the borrower if it was prepared in connection with this credit application For example: Use a prior transaction s appraisal to complete an evaluation for a non- HPML transaction after January 18, 2014 HPML transactions require an appraisal after January 18, 2014 Use a prior transaction s appraisal without any adjustments The term dwelling means a residential structure that contains one to four units whether or not that structure is attached to real property. The term includes, but is not limited to, an individual condominium or cooperative unit, and a mobile or other manufactured home Does not include motor vehicles Provide a Copy Promptly upon Completion Provide in this context means Deliver Delivery occurs 3 business days AFTER mailing or transmission to the applicant s last known address or when indicated by evidence of actual receipt (e.g. receipt, signed delivery receipt, etc.), whichever is earlier Delivery may be electronic if it complies with E-Sign Act Creditor allowed to review and possibly request revisions or corrections to the appraisal Completion occurs the later of When creditor receives last version of appraisal, or When creditor has reviewed and accepted the appraisal or other written valuation with any required changes or corrections If more than one applicant, copies need only be given to one applicant (who must be the primary applicant) DO send revised copies DON T send early drafts

7 ECOA & TILA APPRAISAL RULES Clerical Errors Examples: Promptly upon Completion If after providing applicant a copy, you later identify a clerical error, you may ask the applicant to waive delivery before settlement if: Applicant has already received original appraisal or valuation Changes are only clerical errors with no impact on estimated value Changes do not alter value estimation calculation or methodology Revised copy is delivered no later than closing or account opening Sending a copy within a week of completion with sufficient time before consummation or account opening Sending a copy of a revised appraisal within a week after completion and with sufficient time before consummation or account opening Sending a copy of an AVM report within a week after its receipt and with sufficient time before consummation or account opening Sufficient time: Use received 3 business days before closing as your targeted delivery! Examples: NOT Promptly Provided Delay in sending an appraisal Creditor reviews and accepts appraisal on Day 12 Copy of appraisal sent to applicant(s) on Day 42 Loan consummation or account opening on Day 50 Delay in sending an AVM report while waiting for completion of a second valuation Creditor receives and reviews AVM on Day 5 Creditor orders and rejects first appraisal Revised appraisal received on Day 35 Creditor provides copy of AVM and appraisal on Day 35 Appraisal is prompt, AVM is not promptly provided Multiple Valuations and/or Applicants Multiple Valuations: A copy of each valuation must be provided to applicant New rule: developed in connection with Multiple Applicants: Allowed to send notice and copy of appraisals or valuations only to primary applicant One applicant may waive early delivery, but it must be primary applicant if readily apparent which is the primary Best Practice: Designate in your procedures which applicant is to be considered the primary applicant e.g., first one listed on application

8 ECOA & TILA APPRAISAL RULES Prior to Consummation Waiver of Advance Copy The term consummation means the time that a consumer becomes contractually obligated on a closedend credit transaction [ (b)(1) ] Look to state law to determine when contractually obligated Credit vs. Sale Consummation does not occur when the consumer becomes contractually committed to a sale transaction, unless the consumer also becomes legally obligated to accept a particular credit arrangement. Reg B allows applicants to waive the right to early copy, but requires copy at or before closing Reg Z (HPML regulations) does NOT provide for any waiver If loan will be HPML, may not allow applicant to waive advance delivery If creditor realizes after application loan will be a HPML, then you must not allow any waiver of advance copy Two Types of Timing Waivers Applicant can provide an affirmative oral or written waiver of timing requirement 1. At least 3 business days prior to consummation (closed- end) or account opening (open-end) 2. Within 3 business days of consummation or account opening for waivers that pertain solely to applicant s receipt of a copy of valuation that contains only clerical changes from a prior version previously provided to the applicant Timing Waiver by Applicants Permitted to waive timing requirement earlier of Promptly upon completion or 3 business days prior to consummation or account opening) and agree to receive copies at or before consummation or account opening, except where otherwise prohibited by law Best Practice: Are you willing to accept any consent forms orally????

9 ECOA & TILA APPRAISAL RULES Delivery of Copy After Waiver No Reg B Definition If waived, must receive copy at or prior to consummation (closed-end loan) or account opening (open-end loan) If a waiver is provided and the transaction is not consummated, provide copies no later than 30 calendar days after determining consummation will not occur 30 Business Days Best Practice: Use TILA Regulation Z s business day definition (6) Business day means a day on which the creditor's offices are open to the public for carrying on substantially all of its business functions For purposes of rescission, etil submission, HPML s, HOEPA loans, reverse mortgages, PELs, etc., the term means all calendar days except Sundays and the legal public holidays CFPB s Consumer Guide to New Rule Notice above included in the CFPB s What the new ECOA appraisal and other valuations rule means for consumers dated January 18, 2013, page 3 Fees and Costs A creditor cannot charge fees (including photocopy, postage, or other costs) for copies or delivery costs A creditor may: ECOA and RESPA allow recovery of cost of the appraisal or valuation, with no upcharge Request up-front payment after applicant has expressed intent to proceed (RESPA) Recover Appraisal Management Company (AMC) fees

10 ECOA & TILA APPRAISAL RULES Fees and Costs Points of Vulnerability Creditors are allowed to charge admin costs for requests for duplicate or additional copies May charge for duplicate or additional copies of appraisal report itself Must deliver copy regardless of whether application is approved, denied or withdrawn, even if customer Commercial Lending: Many commercial purpose dwellingsecured loans are not 1 st liens. Implement a process to identify when and when not covered by new rule. Changes in pricing during application could transform the transaction into a HPML after initial application. Implement a process to comply with stricter HPML requirements. Multiple valuations will create more compliance challenges. Do your contracts with third parties restrict your use and sharing of appraisals or valuations that hinder compliance? HPML Coverage Truth in Lending Act (TILA) Regulation Z Closed-end consumer credit transactions secured by the consumer s principal dwelling with an APR that exceeds the average prime offer rate (APOR) for a comparable transaction as of the date the interest rate is set Best Practice: Carefully and consistently determine the date the interest rate is set! The HPML test includes different thresholds for 1 st liens, jumbo loans and subordinate lien loans NOTE HPML rules are included in Reg Z Reg Z does not cover business loans!

11 ECOA & TILA APPRAISAL RULES Additional HPML Disclosures Unless exempt, disclose in writing to HPML applicant: We may order an appraisal to determine the property s value and charge you for this appraisal. We will give you a copy of any appraisal, even if your loan does not close. You can pay for an additional appraisal for your own use at your own cost. Compliance with the appraisal notice disclosure requirement in Reg B satisfies this HPML requirement Reg B version almost identical with one difference promptly Because all first-lien HPMLs are subject to ECOA, creditors using a single notice should use ECOA version w/ promptly Remember the Reg B notice doesn t apply to subordinate liens Use the Reg B version for all 1 st lien loans and all HPMLs which could be 1 st lien or subordinate lien loans Copy of Appraisals Creditor must provide the consumer a copy of each written appraisal: No later than 3 business days prior to consummation of the loan; -OR - In the case of a loan that is not consummated, no later than 30 days after the creditor determines that the loan will not be consummated Proposed Business Day Definition Appraisal Final Rule uses business day for 3 new requirements: Provide applicant a Notice of Right to Receive Copy of Appraisal that must be delivered or placed in the mail not later than the 3rd business day after the creditor receives the consumer s application for a HPML Final Appraisal Rule also requires the creditor to provide the consumer a copy of each written appraisal obtained under the Final Rule no later than 3 business days prior to consummation of the loan Transactions secured solely by a manufactured home and not land that are consummated on or after July 18, 2015 will be exempt from the HPML appraisal rules if the creditor obtains and gives to the consumer a copy of one of 3 types of valuation information no later than 3 business days prior to consummation. Propose to define business day to mean all calendar days except Sundays and the legal public holidays such as New Year s Day, the Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr., Washington s Birthday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. Failed Alignment of Business Day Definitions Under existing Reg Z, early disclosures must be delivered or placed in the mail not later than the 7 th business day before consummation of the transaction; if the disclosures need to be corrected, the consumer must receive corrected disclosures no later than 3 business days before consummation The consumer is deemed to have received the corrected disclosures 3 business days after they are mailed or delivered For these purposes, business day is defined as quoted previously. The Agencies proposed to align the definition of business day under the Final Rule with the definition of business day for these disclosures is to avoid the creditor having to provide the appraisal under the HPML rules and corrected Regulation Z disclosures at different times because of different definitions of business day 43 Consistent with Reg Z mortgage disclosures Consistent with proposed consolidated Reg Z and Reg X early disclosures Consistent with proposed consolidated Reg Z and Reg X final disclosures

12 ECOA & TILA APPRAISAL RULES FINAL Business Day Definition Delivery of Appraisal Copies The Agencies adopted the definition of business day referring to days on which the creditor's offices are open to the public for the timing requirement for the new consolidated TILA and RESPA disclosures. As a result, the Final TILA Appraisal definition of business day adopted in the December 2013 Final Rule is a day on which the creditor's offices are open to the public for carrying on substantially all of its business functions. Creditor may only charge applicant for one appraisal Copy of written appraisals may be provided to applicant in electronic form, subject to compliance with the consumer consent and other applicable provisions of the E-Sign Act or mailed to the last known address Delivery occurs 3 business days after you mail or transmit, unless you have earlier evidence of receipt Required to send one copy to primary applicant HPML Thresholds A HPML is a closed-end consumer credit transaction secured by the consumer s principal dwelling with an APR in excess of the APOR for a comparable transaction as of the date the interest rate is set by: 1.5% points or more for a 1st lien conforming mortgage loan 2.5% points or more for a 1st lien jumbo residential mortgage loan 3.5% points for a loan secured by a subordinate lien Creditor should use the last date the interest rate for the mortgage loan is set before closing HPML rules do not include HELOCs, second home, investment property or any commercial transactions Test effective June 1, Construction Loan HPML Test When the creditor discloses the 2 phases as separate transactions, the APR for the permanent phase must be compared to the APOR for a transaction that is comparable to the permanent financing. When the creditor discloses the 2 phases as a single transaction, a single APR, reflecting the appropriate charges from both phases, must be calculated for the transaction in accordance with 12 CFR (a)(1)) and Appendix D to 12 CFR part The APR must be compared to the APOR for a transaction that is comparable to the permanent financing. If the transaction is determined to be a non-exempt HPML, only the permanent phase is subject to the HPML appraisal requirements. 120

A property abstract Points of Vulnerability Changes in pricing during application could transform the transaction into a HPML after initial application. Implement a process to comply with stricter HPML requirements. Multiple valuations will create more compliance challenges. Reconciliation of change in appraised value from first and second appraisal (when required) must be scrutinized carefully to identify potential flipping!

21 ECOA (REG B) VALUATION RULES & TILA (REG Z) HPML APPRAISAL RULES (Effective for Applications Taken on or after January 18, 2014) Note 1: The ECOA Valuations Rules apply to all closed-end or open-end 1-4 family dwelling 1 st lien secured loans, regardless of whether consumer or commercial purpose. A dwelling is defined as a residential structure that contains 1-4 units whether or not that structure is attached to real property. The rule applies to: Consumer purpose or commercial purpose loans secured by a principal dwelling, vacation home, second home, rental house, individual condo units, mobile homes, or manufactured homes; Loss-mitigation transactions, such as loan modifications, short sales, and deed-in-lieu transactions, if they are credit transactions covered by Regulation B Reverse mortgages and time-share loans if they are 1 st lien credit transactions. Before the new ECOA Valuations Rules, Reg B required only that creditors notify applicants of their right to request a copy of appraisal, and if requested to provide copy. Optionally, Creditors were allowed to forego notice of the right to receive a copy of appraisal and always provide an appraisal copy. The new ECOA Valuations Rules require Creditors to always disclose to applicants within 3 business days of application of the right to receive free copies of appraisals and/or written evaluations (all valuations, not just appraisals) developed in connection with the application. The new rules also require timely delivery of copies of valuations promptly after they are completed, regardless of whether credit is extended, denied, incomplete, or withdrawn and regardless of whether the applicant paid for the valuation. Promptly means providing a copy of each valuation no later than 3 business days prior to consummation of the transaction (for closed-end credit) or account opening (for open-end credit), whichever is earlier. If the appraisal is completed early in the application process, then the promptly upon completion deadline will come first, since it will be earlier than the 3 business-days-before-closing deadline. For example, if a loan will close on Friday, April 4, you must deliver the valuation no later than Tuesday, April 1, assuming no banking holidays. Currently, Reg B does not define business days. Refer to Commentary (a)(5) for examples of promptly upon completion timing. The primary applicant may waive the pre-closing requirement and agree to receive any copy at or before consummation or account opening, unless the loan is an HPML. The waiver must be obtained at least 3 business days prior to closing or account opening, unless the waiver pertains solely to receipt of a valuation copy containing only clerical changes from a previous version provided 3 or more business days prior to closing or account opening. If primary applicant provides a waiver and transaction is not closed or account not opened, provide copies no later than 30 days after determining closing or account opening will not occur. If an application was not originally to be secured by a 1st lien on a dwelling and it is later determined that it will, you have 3 business days after change has occurred to disclose the right to receive valuation copies. Note 2: The TILA HPML Appraisal Rules are more narrowly applicable only to consumer purpose higher-priced mortgage loans (HPML) secured by the applicant s primary residence. HPMLs that meet the Qualified Mortgage standards in section (e) of Regulation Z are exempted from the TILA HPML Appraisal Rules. Therefore, you need to comply with the new Rules only if you originate HPMLs that are not Qualified Mortgages or otherwise exempt. For delivering the initial disclosure on appraisals and also for delivering an appraisal, a business day is defined as when the creditor s offices are open to the public for carrying on substantially all of its business functions. Follow same delivery of copy timing rules as for ECOA for denied, withdrawn, incomplete or loans otherwise not closed. The following are exempt from HPML Appraisal Rules per (c)(2): Qualified Mortgages, as defined in Regulation Z and as defined by other agencies specified in the QM regulations (i.e., USDA, FHA, VA, etc.); Loans secured by new manufactured homes, with or without land (until 7/18/15) Loans secured by boat, mobile homes or trailer; Loans for initial construction of a dwelling (not limited to loans of 12 months or less); Loan with maturity of 12 months or less, if the loan purpose is a bridge loan and intended to be used to acquire the consumer s principal dwelling; Streamlined refinancings if the same creditor or government Agency held the existing credit or guarantee and refinance proceeds are used ONLY to payoff old loan plus any settlement or closing costs; Reverse mortgages subject to 12 CFR (a). Note 3: The TILA HPML Flipped Property Appraisal Rules exempt these property transfers from coverage: Acquisitions from a local, state or federal government agency or from a person that acquired property through foreclosure, deed in lieu (DIL) or similar procedure; acquired from a 501(c)(3) non profit entity authorized to acquire property through foreclosure, DIL or other similar procedure; or from person who acquired property by inheritance or court order of dissolution of marriage, civil union or domestic partnership or a partition of joint or marital assets; acquired from an employer or relocation agency when relocating employee or from a Servicemember receiving deployment or permanent change of station (PCS) order after property purchase; or a property located in declared federal disaster areas waived by Agencies or located in a rural county contained in published CFPB listing. Transactions Covered by Both the ECOA Valuations Rule and the TILA HPML Appraisal Rule: Use the ECOA Valuations Rules disclosure (includes promptly ) to satisfy both TILA and ECOA. Timing rules for delivering appraisal copies and the waiver rules differ between the rules. When both apply, follow the rule providing the earlier deadline for appraisal copy delivery. Remember, you may not allow waiver of pre-closing appraisal copy for a HPML, even if otherwise allowed under ECOA! When both rules apply and there are multiple applicants, Creditor may use ECOA rules for delivering disclosure and valuation copies only to primary applicant when one is apparent.
