      • Among Mortgages, a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is an Open End Loan type.
    • 6. TILA Refresher Workshop
      • Closed End Credit Plans
          • Closed End means the loan program will have a definite End Date.
          • Any Plan that is not an Open End Plan is by definition a Closed End Plan.
    • 7. TILA Refresher Workshop
      • Regular v. Irregular Transactions
        • An Irregular Transaction is one that includes one or more of the following features: multiple advances, irregular payment periods, or irregular payment amounts (other than an irregular first period or an irregular first or final payment).
        • A Regular Transaction will have a single advance, and regular payment periods and amounts.
    • 8. TILA Refresher Workshop
      • Fixed v. Variable Rates
          • Fixed provides one rate of interest for the life of the loan.
          • Variable means the Interest Rate can change over the life of the loan.
          • Reg Z provides very specific rules for explaining Variable Rate loans in an effort to keep the consumer informed.

      • Definition
      • The FINANCE CHARGE is the cost of consumer credit expressed as a dollar amount.
      • It includes any charge payable directly or indirectly by the consumer and imposed directly or indirectly by the creditor as an incident to or a condition of the extension of credit.
      • It does not include any charge of a type payable in a comparable cash transaction.
    • 13. TILA Refresher Workshop
      • Any Fee not specifically excluded from the Finance Charge in 226.4(c)(7) is, in fact, a Finance Charge.
    • 14. TILA Refresher Workshop
      • Prepaid Finance Charges
        • Refers to Finance Charges that are paid by the consumer AT or PRIOR TO the closing of the loan.
        • Finance Charges assessed on the HUD Settlement Statement are Prepaid Finance Charges.
    • 15. TILA Refresher Workshop
      • Annual Percentage Rate (APR)
      • The cost of Consumer Credit expressed as a percentage.
        • Modifies the rate of interest applicable to a loan, considering the effect of non-interest Finance Charges paid by the consumer.
        • TILA requires the disclosure of an APR whenever an Interest Rate is referenced, either orally or in writing.
    • 16. TILA Refresher Workshop
      • Tolerance for Accuracy (Fin. Chg)
      • Lender open to civil liability if Finance Charge is understated by $100.00 or more.
      • Lender open to Rescission liability if Finance Charge is understated by $35.00 or more.
      • No Liability if Finance Charge is Overstated on Disclosure.
    • 17. TILA Refresher Workshop
      • Tolerance for Accuracy (APR)
      • Accurate if within .00125 for Regular Transaction.
      • Accurate if within .00250 for Irregular Transaction.
    • 18. TILA Refresher Workshop
      • Borrower’s Right to Rescind

    • 19. TILA Refresher Workshop

          • Early Disclosure Requirements on all mortgage loans subject to TILA.
          • Restrictions on Fee Receipt and Closing Practices
          • Pre Closing Disclosure Requirements
    • 24. TILA Refresher Workshop
      • Early Disclosure Requirements
      • Up til now, a Preliminary Truth in Lending Disclosure was required only on Purchase transactions; not Refinances.
      • HERA / MDIA Amendments to TILA now require that Preliminary or EARLY TILA Disclosures be given in all circumstances.
    • 25. TILA Refresher Workshop
      • Early Disclosure & Receipt of Fees
      • Before the Consumer can be required to pay any fee, they must receive a copy of the Preliminary Truth In Lending Disclosure.
      • If the Disclosure is delivered by regular mail, it will be presumed to have been received by the consumer on the third business day after mailing.
      • Cannot close loan until at least Seven (7) business days after early disclosures have been mailed.
    • 26. TILA Refresher Workshop
      • New Pre Closing Disclosures
      • If the APR has changed beyond TOLERANCE since the Preliminary or the most recent disclosure, a New TILA Disclosure must be delivered to the applicant at least three business days prior to closing.
      • APR Tolerance is affected regardless of whether the change is in the form of an Increase or a Decrease.
    • 27. TILA Refresher Workshop
      • New Pre Closing Disclosures
      • In reality, nothing has changed in regard to the accuracy of the APR or Finance Charge, except the timing of its measurement.
      • TILA recognizes that the APR is correct, if it is within the 1/8 Tolerance variance (1/4 for Irregular Transactions.)
      • TILA also recognizes that the APR is correct if it is a function of the Finance Charge, and the Finance Charge is within tolerance.
    • 28. TILA Refresher Workshop
      • What’s Different ?
        • The difference is in the timing.
        • Instead of being accurate only AT CLOSING, we must now provide a new accurate disclosure in advance of closing when loan terms have changed.
    • 29. TILA Refresher Workshop
      • HOEPA
      • Section 32 of Reg Z – added in 1994 to address abusive lending practices.

    • 32. TILA Refresher Workshop
      • HPML – Higher Priced Mortgage Loan

    • 33. TILA Refresher Workshop
      • HPML – Higher Priced Mortgage Loan
      • Old HOEPA –
        • Treasury Index = 4.50 %
        • APR = 12.51%
        • Loan is a High Cost Loan per HOEPA because the APR exceeds the Applicable Index by more than 8 pts.
    • 34. TILA Refresher Workshop
      • HPML – Higher Priced Mortgage Loan
      • New HOEPA
        • If APR for First Lien Loan is greater than 1.50 % above the Average Prime Offer Rate, then it is a Higher Priced Mortgage Loan, and subject to all the restrictions implied.

      • New HOEPA –
        • Avg. Prime Offer Rate = 4.50%
