NMLS DELAYS SOME PROPOSED REPORTING REQUIREMENTS
Based on comments from the industry, state regulators announced that some proposed changes in the Mortgage Call Report (MCR) will be postponed. State regulators have decided not to implement the proposed definition of “application”, until 2016. This new definition will trigger additional reporting. The additional reporting requirements will be optional in 2015. In addition, the field to capture Change in Application Amount will be added in the first quarter, but supplying the information will also be optional until the first quarter of 2016. Information on the number and dollar volume of Qualified Mortgage (QM) and Non-QM loans by state will be required starting in the first quarter of 2015. Reporting of nationwide and state specific servicing data will be required starting in the first quarter of 2015. The Ohio Mortgage Bankers Association had previously joined in a comment letter with the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), requesting a delay in implementation of the proposed changes.
