Gain an understanding of home equity loan protections.
Aimed at combatting the problem of reverse redlining, Congress amended the Truth in Lending Act of 1994 with the Home Ownership and Equity Protection Act (HOPEA). HOPEA imposes heightened disclosure requirements to consumers by lenders. The new disclosure requirements apply to high-cost mortgage loans. Redlining is the practice of denying credit to individuals who live within certain geographic boundaries, based primarily on race, income, or ethnicity. By contrast, reverse redlining is the practice of targeting cash-poor homeowners in those same neighborhoods for the extension of home-equity loans with very high interest rates and fees. This video reviews how the new disclosure requirements apply to high-cost mortgage loans as defined by 15 U.S.C.A. § 1602(aa).
