NEW: NCUA Reg Alert Covers QM Rule
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (1/2/14, UPDATED: 3:20 P.M. ET)--Credit unions that make closed-end consumer loans secured by a dwelling must comply with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's new Ability-to-Repay/Qualified Mortgage (ATR/QM) rule for loan applications received on or after Jan. 10, the National Credit Union Administration reminds in its first Regulatory Alert on 2014.

The rule requires credit unions to assess a member's ability to repay for virtually all closed-end residential mortgage loans secured by the member's dwelling and provides your credit union with certain protections from legal liability for compliance with the rule, the agency said in a release.

The NCUA alert includes details on:
  • Which loans are covered by the rule;
  • Basic ability-to-repay requirements;
  • How QMs provide a safe harbor;
  • The different types of QMs;
  • Caps on QM points and fees;
  • How QMs protect against liability;
  • What makes a QM loan higher priced;
  • When prepayment penalties are allowed for QM loans; and
  • What other guidance has been made available.
A supervisory letter with compliance guidance for credit unions and instructions for agency examiners will be released soon, the agency added.

NewsNow will feature more on this release in tomorrow's issue.
