HMDA 2018 Challenges With Taking Commercial Applications

Format: Webinar

HMDA reporters must follow the new rules for applications when final action is taken on or after January 1, 2018. Are you prepared for these sweeping changes?

Many banks do not have a formal “application” form for commercial and agricultural loan requests. While the reporting process may be more streamlined in the mortgage and consumer area, there will be significant changes for business purpose applications.

For instance, the “dwelling secured” standard was generally adopted for closed-end loans and lines of credit for consumers. Business or commercial loans have both the loan purpose test and the dwelling secured tes. Business or commercial purpose loans and lines of credit are reportable only if the purpose of the loan is for home purchase, home improvement, or refinance and the loan is secured by a dwelling.

What type of business purpose loans will be reported? What factors are considered in the purpose test? What if the collateral is a “mixed use” property? Lenders must request applicants and co-applicants who are “natural persons” to identify their ethnicity, race, and sex; this requirement does not apply to a corporation, partnership, LLC, or guarantors. Will the data collection forms you are currently using provide all the required fields for the new reporting requirements?

There are approximately 48+ “working days” from this presentation until January 1, 2018. There are very few parts of the existing rules that will remain unchanged and there are 110 data elements in the new rule. Will you be ready for these extensive changes? Attend this session and learn more about application processing for commercial loans under the new rules and gain valuable tips that will help your bank prepare for 2018.


  • Coverage issues – Which COMMERCIAL applications are covered loans that require data to be collected at the time of application? What types of dwellings are included? Best practices for documenting that applications for agricultural purpose are EXEMPT!
  • What data will be reported? What data will be excluded for business applications? Business purpose loans have many fields that are “not applicable”.
  • What is the correct application date?
  • Identifying the correct loan purpose – there are FIVE options and rules for multi-purpose loans.
  • What does the front-line need to know about these changes?
  • Suggestions for potential problems with collecting, reporting, and validating the data fields for “applicant” and applications in these required fields and understanding when they may NOT be reported:
    • Age for applicants who are “natural persons”, for example a sole proprietor
    • Income – when is reporting required?
    • Reasons for denial
    • Application date
    • Ethnicity, race and sex
      • Disaggregation of ethnicity and race
      • Explanation for 13 KEY points about data collection including loan applications that begin in 2017 but final action is taken on or after January 1, 2018.
