PO 00000 Frm 00040 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 25439 Abstract: The Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) requires most mortgage lenders lending in metropolitan areas to collect data about their housing-related lending activity. Annually, lenders must report those data to the appropriate Federal agencies and make the data available to the public. The CFPB’s regulation requires covered financial institutions that meet certain thresholds to maintain data about home loan applications (e.g., the type of loan requested, the purpose of the loan, whether the loan was approved, and the type of purchaser if the loan was later sold), to update the information quarterly, and to report the information annually. The purpose of the information collection is: (i) To help determine whether financial institutions are serving the housing needs of their communities; (ii) to assist public officials in distributing public-sector investment so as to attract private investment to areas where it is needed; and (iii) to assist in identifying possible discriminatory lending patterns and enforcing antidiscrimination statutes. The information collection will assist the CFPB’s examiners, and examiners of other Federal supervisory agencies, in determining that the financial institutions they supervise comply with applicable provisions of HMDA. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Businesses or other for profits. Estimated Number of Responses: 23,453. Estimated Time per Response: 6 hours 34 minutes. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 154,000. Dated: April 6, 2012. Chris Willey, Chief Information Officer, Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection.

Developers must submit an initial Statement of Record (registration) to the CFPB and receive an effective date before they can offer lots for sale or lease. The Statement of Record includes the proposed property report and additional information and documents that support the developer’s disclosures in the property report. The developer is responsible for ensuring that the registration is accurate and does not omit information needed for a purchaser to make an informed decision. Developers must give purchasers an effective property report before the purchaser signs the sales contract. Developers must submit amendments to their registrations if any information in their initial registration changes.

A developer may voluntarily suspend his registration by submitting a Voluntary Suspension form or through the Annual Report. There are no other forms. The CFPB conducts a facial review of the submissions. The developer may request an Advisory Opinion if a developer has questions about the applicability of one of the exemptions from registration. A CFPB determination is required only if a developer claims an exemption from registration under the multiple site or substantial compliance exemption. The other 24 exemptions are selfdetermining. Finally, the CFPB may require additional information from developers in response to investigations of complaints. The Voluntary Suspension form is voluntary and is a convenient way for developers to voluntarily suspend their registration.

ADDRESSES: Title: Truth in Lending Act (Regulation Z) 12 CFR Part 1026. OMB Number: 3170–0015. Abstract: Federal and state enforcement agencies and private litigants use records retained under the requirement of Regulation Z to ascertain whether accurate and complete disclosures of the cost of credit have been provided to consumers prior to consummation of the credit obligation and, in some instances, during the loan term. The information is also used to determine whether other actions required under the TILA, including complying with billing error resolution procedures and limitation of consumer liability for unauthorized use of credit, have been met. The information retained provides the primary evidence of law violations in TILA enforcement actions brought by Federal agencies. Without the Regulation Z recordkeeping requirement, the agencies’ ability to enforce the TILA would be significantly impaired. As noted above, consumers rely on the disclosures required by the TILA and Regulation Z to shop among SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\30APN1.SGM 30APN1
