Effective: July 1, 2020
Industry: Mortgage Servicing
Source: Fannie Mae   LL-2020-05 →
Tag: Loss Mitigation
Details

Fannie Mae is introducing payment deferral, a new workout option that enables servicers to assist eligible borrowers who have resolved a temporary hardship and resumed their monthly contractual payments but cannot afford either a full reinstatement or repayment plan to bring the loan current. 

Please read the Lender Letter for complete requirements for the payment deferral: 

▪ Determining eligibility for a payment deferral 

▪ Determining eligibility for a payment deferral for a Texas Section 50(a)(6) loan 

▪ Determining the payment deferral terms 

▪ Completing a payment deferral 

▪ Processing a payment deferral for an MBS mortgage loan 

▪ Processing a payment deferral for a mortgage loan with mortgage insurance 

▪ Handling fees and late charges in connection with a payment deferral 

▪ Incentive fees ▪ Servicing fees for a payment deferral 

▪ Requesting reimbursement for payment deferral expenses 

▪ Fannie Mae workout hierarchy ▪ Updates to Fannie Mae Flex Modification 

▪ Reporting responsibilities for payment deferral 

▪ Borrower Solicitation Letter (Form 745) 

Effective: Servicers are encouraged to begin evaluating borrowers for payment deferral in accordance with this Lender Letter on or after Jul. 1, 2020; however, servicers must begin evaluating borrowers for payment deferral no later than Jan. 1, 2021. Also, these policy changes will be reflected in the Dec. 2020 update of the Servicing Guide.

Closed-End Mortgage Loans Data Reporting Thresholds Under HMDA (Reg C)

Effective: July 1, 2020
Industry: Mortgage Lending
Source: CFPB   Final Rule →
Tags: Reg C HMDA, Compliance
Details
  • Permanently raises the threshold for reporting data about closed-end mortgage loans from 25 to 100, so that institutions originating fewer than 100 closed-end mortgage loans in either of the two preceding calendar years will not have to report such data effective July 1, 2020 
  • For calendar year 2021, an institution will not be required to collect HMDA data for closed-end mortgage loans if it originated fewer than 100 closed-end mortgage loans during either 2019 or 2020.
    • Collection: Newly excluded institutions can stop collecting HMDA data on their closedend mortgage loans beginning on July 1, 2020. Note, though, that other laws or regulations may require collection of certain data on home loan activity. For example, Regulation B includes an independent requirement to collect information regarding the applicant’s ethnicity, race, sex, marital status, and age where the credit sought is primarily for the purchase or refinancing of a dwelling that is or will be the applicant’s principal residence and will secure the credit. 
    • Recording: Newly excluded institutions must still record closed-end data for the first quarter of 2020 on a loan/application register by 30 calendar days after the end of the first quarter. They will not, however, be required to record closed-end data for the second quarter of 2020 because the deadline for recording that data is after July 1, 2020. 
    • Reporting: Because newly excluded institutions collecting HMDA data in 2020 would not otherwise report those data until early 2021, the final rule relieves newly excluded institutions of the obligation to report by March 1, 2021 data collected in 2020 on closed end mortgage loans (including data collected in 2020 before July 1, 2020). Under the final rule, a newly excluded institution may report voluntarily HMDA data on closed-end mortgage loans in 2021 as long as the institution reports data for the full calendar year 2020.

Regulation CC Funds Availability

Effective: July 1, 2020
Industry: Consumer Lending
Source: CFPB   Federal Register Notice →
Tag: Consumer
Details

Reg CC Inflation Adjustment Requirements

  • $200 is changing to $225 (Note: the $200 amount is still referred to $100 in Reg CC).   This amount is used on case-by-case holds and will impact most financial institutions.
  • $5,000 is changing to $5,525.  This amount is used on certain special exception holds, such as large deposit holds, new account holds, and repeatedly overdrawn holds.  This change will also impact most financial institutions. 
  •  $400 is changing to $450.  This relates to the rarely used rule that permits financial institutions to extend holds by one business day when a deposit is taken for withdrawal by cash or similar means. 
  • Civil liability under Regulation CC has been changed from $1,000 and $500,000 to $1,100 and $552,500 respectively.

Notification Requirements

  • The change of terms requirements of Regulation CC will be triggered every time there is an adjustment for inflation, and this starts with the 2020 changes to Regulation CC which are required by July 1, 2020.
  • Change-in-terms rules of Regulation CC require a financial institution to send a written notice to consumer account holders at least 30 days before implementing a change to the institution’s funds-availability policy and further states that “any change which expedites the availability of such funds shall be disclosed not later than 30 days after implementation.”  
  • Changes made solely related to inflation adjustments must be sent no later than 30 days after implementation as the increased threshold amounts actually make funds available to consumers sooner than they did in the past.   
  • All customers must be notified of the inflation adjustment changes by July 31, 2020 (assuming financial institutions don’t implement the a changes sooner than July 1, 2020).

Important Note:

Regulation CC requires that you notify affected customers of these changes to your funds availability policy. Since these changes expedite the availability of funds, you must notify them no later than 30 calendar days after the changes take effect. Thus, you have until July 31st. That said, you do still have the option of notifying them prior to the effective date if you wish. Due to different statement cut-off dates, you may want to start the notification process before the July 1st effective date. Whichever timing option you choose, remember:

A notice may be given in any form as long as it is clear and conspicuous. If the bank gives notice of a change by sending the customer a complete new availability disclosure, the bank must direct the customer to the changed terms in the disclosure by use of a letter or insert, or by highlighting the changed terms in the disclosure.

There is no model language for this notification but something similar to the following could be used:

Effective 7/1/2020, we are increasing the amount we make available for withdrawal by checks not subject to next day availability to $225. In addition, the amount available for withdrawal on exception holds for large deposits and new account holds is increasing to $5,525.

Consumer Rights

The legislation provides for the following consumer rights:

  • A consumer (defined as a California resident) has the right to request that a business (defined below) that collects a consumer's personal information (defined below) disclose to that consumer the categories and specific pieces of personal information that the business has collected.
  • A business that collects a consumer's personal information shall, at or before the point of collection, inform consumers as to the categories of personal information to be collected and the purposes for which the categories of personal information shall be used. A business is forbidden from collecting additional categories of personal information or using personal information collected for additional purposes without providing notice to the consumer.
  • A consumer has the right to request that a business delete any personal information about the consumer that the business has collected.
  • A consumer has the right to request that a business that collects personal information about the consumer disclose: (a) the categories of personal information it has collected about that consumer, (b) the categories of sources from which the personal information is collected, (c) the business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling personal information, (d) the categories of third parties with whom the business shares personal information, and (e) the specific pieces of personal information it has collected about that consumer.
  • A consumer has the right to request that a business that sells the consumer's personal information, or that discloses it for a business purpose, disclose: (a) the categories of personal information that the business collected about the consumer, (b) the categories of personal information that the business sold about the consumer and the categories of third parties to whom the personal information was sold, by category or categories of personal information for each third party to whom the personal information was sold, and (c) the categories of personal information that the business disclosed about the consumer for a business purpose.
  • A consumer has the right, at any time, to direct a business that sells personal information about the consumer to third parties not to sell the consumer's personal information.
  • A business cannot sell the personal information of consumers if the business has actual knowledge that the consumer is younger than 16 years old, unless the consumer—in the case of consumers who are between 13 and 16—or the consumer's parent or guardian, in the case of consumers who are younger than 13, has affirmatively authorized the sale of the consumer's personal information.

To comply with these requirements, businesses are required to make available two or more methods for submitting consumer verified requests and the information must be provided to the consumer within 45 days of the verified request.

Online Privacy Notice Requirements

The law requires entities to list specific information in their online privacy policies, including:

  • a description of the consumers' rights as discussed above;
  • a list of the categories of personal information that the business has collected about consumers in the preceding 12 months;
  • a list of the categories of personal information it has sold about consumers in the preceding 12 months; and
  • a list of the categories of personal information it has disclosed about consumers for a business purpose in the preceding 12 months.

If applicable, a business also must provide a clear and conspicuous link on the business' homepage titled “Do Not Sell My Personal Information,” which should lead to a web page enabling a consumer—or a person authorized by the consumer—to opt out of the sale of the consumer's personal information. That information also should be provided in the business' online privacy policy.

Enforcement

The law creates a complicated enforcement mechanism for private litigants and the California Attorney General's office.
