Community Bankers for Compliance Program
Spring Regulatory 2-day Seminar
Date: April 13-14, 2021
Day one: 10:00am - 4:30pm
Day two: 8:30am - 3:00pm
Day 1: Construction Loan Compliance
Ever since the advent of the TILA‐RESPA Integrated Disclosures (TRID) a few years ago, banks have struggled with disclosing a construction or construction/permanent loan. A major part of the problem has been the inability of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to clearly articulate the TRID requirements. This inability has created problems for bankers, loan software companies, auditors and consultants, regulators, and most importantly – consumers. And while we have a clearer picture now, there still are questions that remain unanswered.This seminar will discuss the variety of legal ways to structure and disclose construction and construction/permanent loans, and the impact those decisions may have on your institution and consumers. After discussing the construction product and disclosure possibilities, we will then take those possibilities and apply them to the TRID disclosures themselves. For the TRID portion of the seminar, we will be focusing on two elements. The first will be the timing of the Loan Estimate and Closing Disclosure in a construction or construction/permanent loan. This discussion will be relatively brief, as we discussed general TRID timing requirements during our 2020 CBC presentations.The balance of the TRID presentation will focus on the TRID forms themselves, discussing the options available and the requirements to complete the Loan Estimate and Closing Disclosure. As with the timing discussion, we will limit our discussion to those areas which carry the most TRID risk for construction and construction/permanent loans. The teaching manual will only include the information that will be discussed in the seminar. A more complete set of TRID manuals, covering all TRID requirements, will be available to member attendees via the web.
Day 2: Fair Lending Techniques
Early this year the FDIC strengthened their approach to fair lending examinations, and issued a variety of new documents, new procedures, and new checklists that examiners are required to complete. All of the regulators have stated that fair lending is going to play a larger role in examinations, even though the Federal Reserve and Office of the Comptroller of the Currency have not updated their fair lending manuals for a while. If your bank has a fair lending issue, finding it and dealing with it promptly is important..This seminar will deal with techniques that you can use to monitor your bank’s fair lending status. Included will be case studies, techniques, checklists, suggestions for approaches and other aids that will assist you and your bank to prepare for your next (and probably more detailed)fair lending exam. While we will address portions of the regulation briefly, our focus is going to be on methods that apply the regulation to your bank. The presenters will assume that attendees understand the basics of the regulation.Some of the case studies and other material will be fairly lengthy and will be forwarded to attendees for review. Attendees should read and understand them prior to the seminar to get the maximum value from the program. We will not be able to offer attendees sufficient time during the seminar to digest the information. (This will probably be the first time a CBC program includes homework.) This topic was suggested by many attendees when we last solicited topics.The presentation will also include a brief discussion of the new HPML escrow rule.
