CONSUMER FINANCIAL PROTECTION BUREAU ANNOUNCES SETTLEMENT WITH WASHINGTON FEDERAL BANK, N.A. FOR FLAWED MORTGAGE-LOAN DATA REPORTING

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (Bureau) settled with Washington Federal Bank, N.A., a federally insured national bank, to address the Bureau's finding that it reported inaccurate Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) data about its mortgage transactions for 2016 and 2017.  Inaccurate HMDA data can make it difficult for the public and regulators to discover and stop discrimination in home mortgage lending or for public officials and lenders to tell whether a community's credit needs are being met.  The settlement requires Washington Federal to pay a $200,000 civil money penalty and develop and implement an effective compliance-management system to prevent future violations. The Bureau found that Washington Federal, headquartered in Seattle,…

RATA Implementing the CRA Modernization

Added on September 18, 2020

The OCC published their Final Rule changes regarding modernization of CRA data collection on May 20th and there were several changes in the ruling that can affect Comply; both in the collection of CRA-reportable data as well as assessment area analysis. While most of the rule changes are a few years away from full implementation, there are some aspects that we are moving forward with now in Comply to gain some momentum. Specifically, the upcoming release of Comply 20.0 will include a geocode attribute that denotes if a geocoded loan or loan application is within a Native Land or Tribal Area. This addition, while in the spirit of the OCC changes, could be of value to CRA reporters of other agencies as well. We are also incorporating a field in the demographic data to facilitate…

FFIEC Releases 2020 Demographic Data

Added on August 5, 2020

RATA Associates is pleased to announce that the 2020 FFIEC demographic data is now available for all RATA Clients. If you use Auto-Updates to keep your system data up to date, you should see the new data available the next time you log in to Comply. If you don't use Auto-Updates the data will be available on the RATA Support Site to download and import. Comply links the demographics to the geocoding in the system automatically so once you update your system all new reports and views of the data are retroactive for the entire year. For those of you using our QuickPoint Web Service (QPWS) to geocode applications real-time in your LOS systems, you will only receive the new demographics from today forward since they are sent at the time the geocode is assigned. Again, this is only an issue…
