RATA Response to CFPB RE: HMDA Data Outreach: Review Data for Invalid Entries in the Street Address Field

Added on May 3, 2023

Update 5/9/2023: Just wanted to follow up with all of you as we learn more about the address quality letter. RATA has not gotten a response to our letter yet, but one of our clients submitted a letter on their own and I think the response is worth sharing and will make many of you feel better. See below. Question from RATA Client: The email "HMDA Data Outreach: Review Data for Invalid Entries in the Street Address Field" leads me to believe that additional address components or special characters should not be included in the street address field. If that is true, LARS for years 2020 – 2022 that were submitted on time, that contain these address components such as a comma, dash, period, etc. in the street address field; if the geocoding is correct (can be proven) will a financial…

HMDA Data Outreach: Review Data for Invalid Entries in the Street Address Field

Added on April 17, 2023

Update 4/18/2023 A customer reached out to the CFPB HMDA Help and received the following reply: Hello, Thank you for reaching out for clarification! This email went out to several financial institutions that had data flagged when we ran an analysis on the Street Address field. The brief that was attached to the original email describes the types of issues that were discovered. Please use the examples of errors in the brief to review your data and resubmit if needed. We are unable to support an individual file review. Note that there is a chance that the analysis may have flagged data that is accurate resulting in false positives. If you have reviewed your data and found it to be accurate, no action is needed. Thank you, CFPB HMDA   This definition is a short-term solution to help…

RATA's Implementation Plans for the new Small Business Lending (SBL) Regulation

Added on April 4, 2023

On March 30, 2023, the CFPB released the finalized rule to create the new data set on Small Business Lending (SBL) in America. Required institutions that originate at least 2,500 small business loans annually will be required to collect this data starting October 1, 2024. For smaller required lenders originating 500 loans or 100 loans annually, the dates to start collecting are April 1, 2025 and January 1, 2026, respectively. RATA is currently reviewing the specifications and will be offering a new component in Comply to fulfill this rule. The new component will have similar functionality to the current HMDA and CRA components, and will be released in phases to allow reasonable time for development, allowing customers to become acquainted with the component and begin testing if they are…

RATA Releases Preliminary 2022 HMDA Peer Data

Added on March 23, 2023

The CFPB has gotten into a pattern of releasing two versions of HMDA peer data. To get the data out quickly, they assemble the submissions and make preliminary public data available around mid March of each year. The release of the final data with full transmittal information usually comes a few months later. As with previous years, we have decided to release a non-official version of the HMDA peer data so that all of you can start doing Peer Analysis on the current data. This release uses the Modified LAR Data from the CFPB, which we have combined and reformatted. This data gives the ability to perform analysis on a preliminary basis until the official national dataset is released later this year (typically in June). We have tested to make sure the numbers look reasonable and believe…
