Examiners are carefully scrutinizing denial notices for compliance with Regulation B and fair lending standards. This seminar will cover the important issues of proper and timely handling of denial notices in accordance with Regulation B. It will also address how to include denials in your sample for internal comparative file review for fair lending compliance.
Examiners are turning up the heat on adverse action notices. Properly handling adverse action notification is a compliance requirement that has to be done right! Accurate completion of adverse action notices is important for several reasons:
- Their accuracy and timeliness are reviewed during compliance exams
- Adverse action notices are the cornerstone of fair lending examinations
- Inconsistent, inaccurate notices could result in being required to go back six months, review past notices, and re-send accurate denial notices. (Imagine the reaction of a past, unsuccessful borrower who gets a reminder denial notice!)
