Reminder: Sun West’s Implementation of Truth in Lending (Regulation Z) Annual Threshold Adjustments

Dear Licensed Partner,

Effective for loans originated on or after January 1, 2015, CFPB's Final Rule  updated the dollar amounts for provisions implementing amendments to Truth-in-Lending Act (TILA) under the Home Ownership and Equity Protection Act (HOEPA) and the Dodd-Frank Act. Accordingly, Sun West has updated the following sections of its guidelines:

Home Ownership and Equity Protection Act (HOEPA) 

The Loan Amount Thresholds and Points and Fees Limit used to determine whether a transaction is a High Cost Mortgage are revised as below:

Loan Amount Threshold Points and Fees Limit
Loan Amount > $20,391  5% of Total Loan Amount 
Loan Amount < $20,391  8% of Total Loan Amount or $1,020, whichever is less 

Dodd-Frank Act - Ability to Repay/Qualified Mortgage (QM)

The Loan Amount Thresholds and Points and Fees Limits used to determine whether a transaction is a Qualified Mortgage (QM) are revised as below:

Loan Amount Threshold Points and Fees Limit
Loan Amount ≥ $101,953  3% of Total Loan Amount 
$61,172 ≤ Loan Amount < $101,953 $3,059
$20,391 ≤ Loan Amount < $61,172  5% of Total Loan Amount 
$12,744 ≤ Loan Amount < $20,391 $1,020 
Loan Amount < $12,744  8% of Total Loan Amount 

The Total Loan Amount is calculated by subtracting any points and fees that are financed by the creditor from the amount financed.
