RESPA: GFE Preparation and Issuance Rules GFE preparation and issuance rules include: Prior to issuing a GFE, the loan originator/lender may only collect a bona fide fee for the cost of the credit report. Additional fees, such as the appraisal fee, cannot be collected until the borrower has received a copy of the GFE and TIL. AFN requires that a signed Notice of Intent to Proceed, signed TIL, and full set of signed initial disclosures are returned prior to collecting any additional money. Fees may not be listed as POC (paid outside of closing) on the GFE. 4
RESPA: GFE “Changed Circumstances” Rules The loan terms or charges can only be changed in the event there are “changed circumstances” as outlined below: Acts of God, war, disaster, or an emergency situation has arisen. Information particular to the borrower or transaction, which was relied upon when providing the GFE, has since been found to be inaccurate or has changed; such information may include the borrower’s credit to qualify, the loan amount, the estimated property value or any other information that was used to provide the GFE. New information particular to the borrower or transaction, which was not relied upon when providing the GFE, has been discovered. Other circumstances particular to the borrower or transaction, such as boundary disputes, the need for flood insurance, or environmental problems have arisen. 5
RESPA: GFE “Changed Circumstances” Rules (Cont’d) "Changed Circumstances" must be disclosed within three business days of receiving the changed information and only those fees affected by the changed circumstance may be amended. Common Examples of "changed circumstances" (this is not an all-inclusive list; all must be disclosed within three business days of the change): Underwriter determines a desk review is required Borrower requests a change in the loan amount or terms Loan is locked and points change based on the locked price 6
RESPA: GFE Disclosure Tolerances RESPA contains 3 tolerance levels for costs disclosed on the GFE. These levels dictate which disclosed fees can change at settlement and by how much (if at all). Those with Zero Tolerance cannot change at closing. Those with a 10% Tolerance can increase up to 10% at closing. Those with Unlimited Toler- ance can increase by any percentage or amount at closing. 7
RESPA: GFE Re-disclosure Requirements Each time the GFE is amended, the following forms are required with this re-disclosure: Changed Circumstance Form, identifying the change(s) that are being made Revised GFE with new disclosure date and charges; list each fee that is changing per the changed circumstance form, making sure to show the old amounts and the new amounts of the fees Re-disclosed Initial Fees Worksheet (Point form)/Re-disclosed Itemized Fee Worksheet (Encompass form) These three forms are to be uploaded to the paperless system as a group under the form definition “GFE (Re-disclosure) #1” (#2, #3, etc.). 8
RESPA: Right to Cure and Tolerance Violations If any charges at settlement are greater than those listed on the GFE by more than the permitted tolerance, the branch may “cure” the tolerance violation by issuing a lender credit to reimburse the borrower. The reimbursement must equal the amount by which the tolerance was exceeded. 9
Notice of Intent to Proceed The initial disclosure date in this example is 01/04/2011. This form has two fields in which a date must appear; the 1 st is the date this form is issued, and the 2 nd is the date of the GFE (they will typically match) /04
GFE Page 1: Originator, Borrower & Property Page 1 of the GFE contains basic loan information, including the loan originator, borrower(s) and loan terms. You must also provide the loan originator’s name, address, phone number and address and his/her business name. Use AFN phone number or cell phone numbers, and AFN or personal accounts. Names of all applicants are also required, as well as the subject property address. The GFE must also be dated with the completion date. 11
GFE Page 1: Important Dates – Floating Loans “Important Dates” for floating loans are to be completed as follows: Line 1.The date (and time, if applicable) until which the stated interest rate is available (typically the initial disclosure date; N/A is not acceptable) Line 2.The date until which the estimate for all other settlement charges is available; it must be at least 10 business days from the date of the GFE (N/A is not acceptable).

GFE Page 1: Summary of Your Loan Your initial loan amount is – The total loan amount Your loan term is – The term of the loan, expressed in years Your initial interest rate is – The note rate, or initial rate if an ARM Your initial monthly amount owed for principal, interest, and any mortgage insurance is – This amount should reflect principal, interest, and any mortgage insurance payments. 14
GFE Page 1: Summary of Your Loan (Continued) Check No or Yes to indicate whether the interest rate could rise. If yes, indicate the maximum rate to which it can rise over the life of the loan and the first rate change date (if date unknown, enter “unknown”). Check No or Yes to indicate whether the loan balance can rise, even if the borrower makes payments as agreed and on time. A loan with a negative amortization is an example of a “Yes.” If yes, indicate the maximum amount to which the balance can rise during the life of the loan. NOTE: If the loan balance will increase only because escrow items are being paid through the loan balance, you do not have to check Yes. 15
GFE Page 1: Summary of Your Loan (Continued) Check No or Yes to indicate whether the monthly amount of principal, interest, and mortgage insurance can rise, even if payments are made as agreed and on time. If yes, state: the # of years (or months) until the monthly amount can first change; the maximum monthly amount at the first change; and the most the monthly payment amount could ever be over the life of the loan. Check No or Yes to indicate whether a prepayment penalty applies. If yes, indicate the maximum amount it could be. Check No or Yes to indicate whether there is a balloon payment. If yes, state the amount of the payment and the number of years until it’s due. 16
GFE Page 1: Escrow Account Information This box is used to inform the borrower(s) whether or not the loan includes an escrow account for property taxes and other of their financial obligations. The “monthly amount owed of…” should match the amount you entered as the initial monthly payment amount in the “Summary of your loan” section. It includes principal, interest, and mortgage insurance only (and does not include the amount of the estimated escrow payment). Check No or Yes to indicate whether or not there is an escrow account. If yes, you are required to provide further details on page two. 17
GFE Page 1: Summary of Settlement Charges Block A – This is the amount carried forward (actually, backward) from origination charges/fees calculated on page 2. Block B – This is the amount carried forward (actually, backward) from all other charges/fees for settlement services calculated on page 2. Block A + B – This is the total sum of the amounts shown in the two blocks above. 18
GFE Page 2: Estimated Settlement Charges – Origination Charge Block 1 – The total of all charges that all originators (lenders, mortgage brokers) involved in the transaction will receive. This includes all fees associated with getting the loan, such as: the broker’s YSP; origination points; application, processing, underwriting, administration, document preparation, wire, lender inspection, and other miscellaneous fees (does not include discount points used to buy down the rate). An originator cannot separately charge additional fees. EXAMPLE: If there is a 1% origination fee on a $250,000 loan, plus a $250 underwriting fee, and a $100 wire fee, the amount listed here would be $2,850 (1% of $250,000 = $2,500 + $250 + $100 = $2,850). 19
GFE Page 2: Estimated Settlement Charges – Origination Charge (Continued) Block 2 – Check only one of the three checkboxes, insert the interest rate, and insert the dollar amount (or zero if none) in the box on the right. How this box is completed depends on whether or not the transaction involves a mortgage broker. No Mortgage Broker Involved – You may choose not to disclose any credit or charge for the interest rate separately from the origination charge by checking the 1st box and inserting a zero in the box on the right. AFN requires that lender credits are disclosed here, as well as any points charged to the borrower. 20
GFE Page 2: Estimated Settlement Charges – Origination Charge with Broker Involvement Remember, how this box is completed depends on whether or not the transaction involves a mortgage broker. Mortgage Broker Involved – Check the 2 nd or 3 rd box to disclose whether there are discount points that reduce the rate (a charge) or a YSP (a credit) for the specific interest rate. This amount is the net payment from the lender to the mortgage broker. Calculate the sum of all payments from the lender to the broker, including payments based on the loan amount, a flat rate, or any other computation. 21
GFE Page 2: Estimated Settlement Charges – Origination with Broker Involved YSP YSP Example – If the net payment from the lender to the mortgage broker is positive (i.e. a YSP is paid to the broker), check the 2 nd box to reflect a credit to the borrower. State the amount of the YSP in the box provided and insert this as a negative amount (a credit) in the box on the right. This negative amount offsets the amount of YSP paid to the broker as compensation, which was included in Block 1 under “Our origination charge.” NOTE: Check only one box in Block 2; there cannot be both a credit for a YSP and a charge for discount points in the same transaction. X
GFE Page 2: Estimated Settlement Charges – Origination with Broker Involved Points Points Example – If the net payment from the lender to the mortgage broker is negative (i.e. the borrower paid discount points to buy down the rate), check the 3 rd box to reflect a charge to the borrower. State the dollar amount of the charge and insert it as a positive amount (a charge) in the box to the right. If there is no net payment (the sum calculated equals zero), either the 2 nd or 3 rd box may be checked. A zero must be entered in the box to the right. NOTE: Check only one box in Block 2; there cannot be both a credit for a YSP and a charge for discount points in the same transaction. X
GFE Page 2: Estimated Settlement Charges – Total Origination Charges Block A – This is the total of the amounts shown in Block 1 and Block 2. Transfer this amount to Block A on Page 1 of the GFE. NOTE: A negative sum is possible in some transactions. Where a “no cost” loan encompasses the loan origination fee and other third-party fees, list a negative amount (a credit) in Block 2 to offset all of the fees in the “no cost” loan. This will result in a negative number in Block A to cover the intended third-party fees listed in Blocks
GFE Page 2: Charges for Settlement Services – Lender-selected Required Services Block 3 – List third-party service providers that are required and selected by the originator (other than title services), including the specific service provided and estimated charge for each. Enter the sum of these charges in the box to the right. Third-party settlement providers are providers of services other than the loan originator itself. Examples include credit vendors, appraisers, flood and tax-related service providers, and mortgage insurance companies. 25

For non-purchase (i.e. refinance or home equity loan) transactions, enter “Not Applicable” or “N/A” in the box to the right. 26
GFE Page 2: Charges for Settlement Services – Required Services for which Borrowers Can Shop Block 6 – List each required third-party service for which the borrowers are permitted to shop/select the settlement service provider (other than title services). Describe the service and insert a fee estimate in the charge column. Enter the sum total of these fees in the box to the right.

MDIA: Summary MDIA requires, among other things, that a creditor provide the early disclosures even when the loan is not for the purpose of financing the purchase or initial construction of the consumer’s principal dwelling. The early disclosures must also be provided for non-purchase closed-end loans secured by the consumer’s principal dwelling (such as a refinance loan). MDIA also requires these disclosures to be given before the consumer pays any fee, other than a bona fide and reasonable fee for obtaining the consumer’s credit history. The creditor must also supply the upfront disclosures, including the Truth in Lending (TIL) and any revisions prior to closing if fees change above tolerance. 44
MDIA: RESPA Requirements The final rule applies to all RESPA covered loans secured by the dwelling of a consumer. This includes the following: Purchase, refinance and home equity loans on principle residences Purchase, refinance and home equity loans on secondary residences Investment/Rental properties (could be considered exempt, but AFN will treat these in the same manner as it does owner- occupied loans) 45
MDIA: Initial Disclosures Preparation of Initial Disclosures Loan originators or loan processors are required to prepare the initial disclosures. Refer to the AFN Disclosure Checklist for an up-to-date list of disclosures required for each loan type. Refer to the list of APR versus Non- APR fees for accurate preparation of disclosures. Timing of Initial Disclosures Initial disclosures must be sent out within three business days of receipt of the initial loan application. This rule does not apply to FHA/VA specific forms, which must still be signed and dated the same day the borrower signs/dates the loan application. No fees, except a bona fide and reasonable credit fee, may be charged until the borrower receives the initial TIL disclosure. AFN considers the disclosures received by the borrower when they are signed by the borrower(s). Any additional fees, including the appraisal fee, cannot be collected until the borrower has received and signed initial disclosures. Additional fees can be charged the same day the disclosures are returned signed by the borrower(s). 46
MDIA: Application Defined For purposes of MDIA, AFN will use the definition of application provided under Regulation Z as revised by HUD. Application means the submission of a borrower’s financial information in anticipation of a credit decision relating to a federally related mortgage loan. It shall include the following: Borrower’s Name Borrower’s Income Borrower’s SSN to obtain credit Property Address Estimated Property Value Loan Amount Any additional information deemed necessary An application may either be in writing or electronically submitted, including a written record or an oral application. Disclosures are required when all items are received. 47
MDIA: Verbiage Requirements The following verbiage must be added to the disclosures: “You are not required to complete this agreement merely because you have received these disclosures or signed a loan application.” The following rules also apply: AFN Corporate uses the latest Point and Encompass versions, which include the new verbiage on the disclosures. Branches must ensure their software/disclosures are current and have the updated verbiage. The required verbiage must be noticeably added. All numeric disclosures are still marked “E” for estimate. This verbiage must also be included in any subsequent disclosures. 48
MDIA: Waiting Periods/When to Re-disclose Seven-day Waiting Period After Disclosure Once the initial estimated disclosures are provided, there is a seven business day waiting period before borrowers sign loan documents. The initial seven business day waiting period begins when the borrower receives the initial disclosures. AFN will consider the disclosures received when they are signed by the borrower(s). The business day definition for the purpose of the waiting periods is similar to the definition used for rescission: Monday – Saturday excluding legal federal holidays. The only difference is: with rescission, when you’re counting days, you may fund the day after the last day in the count; with MDIA, when you’re counting days, you may draw docs on the last day of the count. When to Re-disclose If the APR, as defined by RESPA, increases by more than 1/8 th of 1% (0.125) from the previously disclosed APR, you must re-disclose. 49
MDIA: Waiting Periods/When to Re-disclose (Cont’d) Three-day Waiting Period After Re-Disclosure Any re-disclosure requires an additional three business day waiting period prior to consummation (date the borrowers sign loan documents). The business day definition for the purpose of the waiting periods is similar to the definition used for rescission: Monday – Saturday excluding legal federal holidays. The only difference is: with rescission, when you’re counting days, you may fund the day after the last day in the count; with MDIA, when you’re counting days, you may draw docs on the last day of the count. If revised disclosures are mailed, the three business day waiting period will begin after allowing three business days for mail to be delivered, thus loan documents cannot be prepared or signed until six business days have passed. If revised disclosures are delivered in person, faxed or ed and returned signed and dated by all borrowers, the three business day waiting period may begin based on the date the revised forms are signed/dated. 50
MDIA: Initial Disclosure – Day Counting Chart * Date borrowers sign/date initial disclosures *** Applies to scenarios where Saturday is counted as a business day, and there is no legal holiday from the date the initial disclosure was received. 51
MDIA: Re-disclosure – Day Counting Chart * Applies to scenarios where Saturday is counted as a business day, and there is no legal holiday from the date the initial disclosure was received. 52
MDIA: Avoid Unnecessary Delays with Loan Docs Following are things you can do to help avoid unnecessary delays with the issuance of loan documents: Obtain accurate fees for escrow and title before issuing initial disclosures Do not over- or underestimate fees (including daily interest) on initial disclosures Record APR and Non-APR fees correctly when issuing initial disclosures (see chart) Do not collect appraisal fees until signed initial disclosures are received Obtain an updated estimated closing statement from escrow at the time of loan approval; if a re-disclosure is required, prepare it at that time Review the APR when the loan is locked or when you know the rate will change; if re-disclosure is required, prepare it at that time Use the correct upfront MI Premium or monthly MI Premium (see chart) Complete Point/Encompass correctly to calculate the monthly MI (see example) 53
MDIA: Calculating the Monthly MI You must go beyond the primary MI fields to properly calculate MI pay- ments. In this Encompass example, click the pencil icon next to the MI fields to reveal another box in which you must enter data. On the 2 nd screen, enter “Cancel at 78%” (LTV) and also check the box for “Calculate based on remaining balance.” MI will not be correct if it is calculated as base loan amount multiplied by the MI factor and divided by

Under PREPAYMENT, regardless of loan type (Conv, FHA, VA) mark “will not have to pay a penalty;” Conv, VA “will not be entitled to a refund of part of the finance charge;” and FHA “may be entitled to a refund of part of the finance charge.” Under ASSUMPTION, mark “may, subject to conditions” for FHA/VA loans, and mark “may not” for conventional loans. For all loan types, mark the “E means an estimate” and “all dates and numerical disclosures except the late payment disclosure are estimates” boxes
TIL – Itemization of Amount Financed 60 The date prepared must match the date prepared on the initial TIL. The origination charges must match origination charges on page 1 of the GFE. Both the TIL and the Itemiz- ation of Amount Financed are to be uploaded to the paperless system as a group under the form definition “TIL (Initial).”
TIL Disclosure Statement (Re-disclosing) 61 Re-disclosure is required if the APR increases by more than.125%. You only need to re-disclose the TIL when you re-disclose the GFE if the APR increases by more than.125%. The date prepared is the date you re-disclose. There is a waiting period before docs can be drawn of 6 days if the re-disclosed TIL is not signed and 3 days if it is signed.
Itemization of Amount Financed (Re-disclosing) 62 The date prepared must match the date prepared on the re-disclosed TIL. Both the re-disclosed TIL and the re-disclosed Itemiz- ation of Amount Financed are to be uploaded to the paperless system as a group under the form definition “TIL (Re-disclosed) #1” (#2, or #3).
TIL Disclosure Statement – New Format 63 For all applications taken 01/30/2011 and after, the newly revised TIL Disclosure Statement is required. The new version of the TIL displays an “Interest Rate and Payment Summary” where the former form had a payment schedule table. Be sure you have updated your Encompass or Point version to include this revised TIL Disclosure.
Disclosure Tips 65 Disclosure checklists are available on WebTrac. Use print groups prepared by the corporate office for accuracy. Use of incorrect information will delay file progress.
