Join LSCU for a Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) Reporting Webinar

The League of Southeastern Credit Unions & Affiliates (LSCU) is excited to bring you a Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) Reporting Part 1: Application Basics webinar on September 28, 2021. Join this fast-paced 60-minute session that outlines the basic rules for identifying potential HMDA applications and provides effective training for new employees and reinforces the importance of “getting it right” for the lending staff. This is the first webinar of a three-part series. Attend Parts 2 and 3 to learn more about collecting demographic information and commercial lending issues. This informative session is designed for all employees who need to understand and manage HMDA reporting, including loan operations, loan officers, loan assistants, processors, compliance officers, and auditors.

After this webinar you’ll be able to:

  • Distinguish a “prequalification” which is not HMDA reportable, from a “preapproval” which is reportable
  • Effectively use the CFPB’s HMDA resources to identify potential applications
  • Define various types of dwellings that trigger a HMDA application
  • Explain to applicants the need to collect demographic information
  • Understand the elements of a “completed” application
