Lending Compliance Audit

Banks and financial institutions offering consumer loans must stay up to date with the most recent lending laws to remain in compliance. Understanding these laws and their requirements is a critical part of consumer lending. Loan compliance regulations involve everything from accepting applications and approving credit to collecting payments and sending compliance reports to the government.

Having an experienced consultant by your side to guide you through these requirements can save your company valuable time and help you avoid potential penalties down the road. Lending compliance audits ensure your loans meet all necessary underwriting guidelines and federal regulatory requirements.

Identifying Issues With Lending Compliance Regulations

A lending compliance audit aims to identify and document known compliance issues with your lending program under federal regulations. Audits can range in scope, from credit card regulations to TILA-RESPA integrated disclosures to the requirements of the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act. Each audit is tailored to your institution's specific risk profile and covers the following regulations:

  • Truth In Lending Act (Reg Z)
  • Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (Reg X)
  • Equal Credit Opportunity Act (Reg B)
  • Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (Reg C)
  • Fair Credit Reporting Act (Reg V)
  • Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA)
  • Flood Disaster Protection Act (FDPA)
  • Consumer Protection in Sales of Insurance Act (Reg H)
  • Fair Housing Act (FHA)
  • Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA)
  • Homeowners Protection Act (HPA)
  • Military Lending Act (MLA)
  • Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA)
  • Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act (SAFE Act)

During discovery, we will outline all the audit details to ensure you meet the necessary loan requirements. We'll also analyze loan time frames and confirm prompt report delivery. The audit findings will provide an overall rating and reveal any prospective compliance issues.
