Download as PDF rmajette on DSK7SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 176 / Friday, September 11, 2015 / Notices obtained as a part of an examination or supervision of a bank are exempt from disclosure under FOIA exemption (b)(8), for examination material (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8)). In addition, the information may also be kept confidential under exemption 4 of the FOIA which protects commercial or financial information obtained from a person that is privileged or confidential (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). Abstract: Reverse mortgages are home-secured loans typically offered to elderly consumers. Financial institutions currently provide two types of reverse mortgage products: the lenders’ own proprietary reverse mortgage products and reverse mortgages insured by the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Federal Housing Administration (FHA). Reverse mortgage loans insured by the FHA are made pursuant to the guidelines and rules established by HUD’s HECM program. HECM loans and proprietary reverse mortgages are also subject to the rules that implement consumer protection laws such as the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) and TILA. In August 2010, the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council, on behalf of its member agencies,1 published a Federal Register notice adopting supervisory guidance titled ‘‘Reverse Mortgage Products: Guidance for Managing Compliance and Reputation Risks.’’ 2 The guidance is designed to help financial institutions with risk management and assist financial institutions’ efforts to ensure that their reverse mortgage lending practices adequately address consumer compliance and reputation risks. The guidance describes reporting, recordkeeping, and disclosures for both proprietary and HECM reverse mortgages. A number of these disclosures are ‘‘usual and customary’’ business practices for proprietary and HECM reverse mortgages, and these would not meet the PRA’s definition of ‘‘paperwork.’’ Other included disclosure requirements are currently mandated by RESPA or TILA for all reverse mortgage loans and information collections required by HUD’s rules for HECM loans.3 Discussion of these requirements in the guidance is also not considered additional paperwork burden imposed by the guidance. Proprietary reverse mortgage products, however, are not subject to HUD’s rules for HECM loans.

VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:14 Sep 10, 2015 Jkt 235001 extent that the interagency guidance applies HECM requirements to proprietary loans, this would meet the PRA’s definition of paperwork burden. There are also additional provisions in the guidance that apply to both proprietary and HECM reverse mortgages that do not meet the ‘‘usual and customary’’ standard, are not covered by already approved information collections and, therefore, likewise meet the PRA’s definition of paperwork burden. Proprietary Reverse Mortgages Financial institutions offering proprietary reverse mortgages are encouraged under the guidance to follow or adopt relevant HECM requirements for mandatory counseling, disclosures, affordable origination fees, restrictions on cross-selling of ancillary products, and reliable appraisals. Proprietary and HECM Reverse Mortgages Financial institutions offering either proprietary or HECM reverse mortgages are encouraged to develop clear and balanced product descriptions and make them available to consumers shopping for a mortgage. They should set forth a description of how disbursements can be received and include timely information to supplement disclosures mandated by TILA and other disclosures. Promotional materials and product descriptions should include information about the costs, terms, features, and risks of reverse mortgage products. Financial institutions should adopt policies and procedures that prohibit directing a consumer to a particular counseling agency or contacting a counselor on the consumer’s behalf. They should adopt clear written policies and establish internal controls specifying that neither the lender nor any broker will require the borrower to purchase any other product from the lender in order to obtain the mortgage. Policies should be clear so that originators do not have an inappropriate incentive to sell other products that appear linked to the granting of a mortgage. Legal and compliance reviews should include oversight of compensation programs so that lending personnel are not improperly encouraged to direct consumers to particular products. Financial institutions making, purchasing, or servicing reverse mortgages through a third party should conduct due diligence and establish criteria for third-party relationships and compensation. They should set requirements for agreements and PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 54793 establish systems to monitor compliance with the agreement and applicable laws and regulations. They should also take corrective action if a third party fails to comply. Third-party relationships should be structured in a way that does not conflict with RESPA. Current Actions: On June 23, 2015, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (80 FR 35953) requesting comment for 60 days on the Supervisory Guidance on Managing Compliance and Reputation Risks for Reverse Mortgage Products. The comment period for this notice expired on August 24, 2015. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments. The information collection will be extended as proposed.
