The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s new qualified mortgage “safe harbor” promises to protect lenders if they can show that a loan met certain criteria at origination that presume the borrower has the ability to repay. But to reach that harbor, originators must navigate some complex calculations to determine if the points and fees fit under the 3 percent maximum and if the loan’s interest rate is below the threshold that would make it “higher-priced.” Routinely including the wrong numbers or misunderstanding how to apply them could put an entire portfolio of loans thought to be covered by the safe harbor into a riskier category and expose your organization to significantly increased liability.
This webinar will discuss what to include in your calculations and how to “do the math”, to help you clear this most-significant hurdle between noncompliance and compliance. This webinar will also look at the rule revisions that the CFPB issued this summer and the “clarifications” they offered on underwriting issues, as well as provide practical advice for how to figure points and fees, how to determine the correct average prime offer rate and how to make other calculations essential to classification as a qualified mortgage.
