Compliance Question of the Week

QUESTION: If a bank originates a loan to improve 5 separate dwellings, does the bank consider the property a multifamily dwelling for certain data field requirements?


No. A covered loan secured by five or more separate dwellings in more than one location is not a loan secured by a multifamily dwelling. Nor is a covered loan secured by five or more separate dwellings that are located inside of a multifamily dwelling considered a multifamily dwelling for reporting purposes. Note: This data field is required for all HMDA reporting institutions.
