Truth in Lending Act (Regulation Z)

Overview

The Truth in Lending Act (TILA), 15 U.S.C. 1601 (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) et seq., and its implementing regulation, Regulation Z (12 CFR 1026 (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) ), were initially designed to protect consumers primarily through disclosures. Over time, however, TILA and Regulation Z have been expanded to impose a wide variety of requirements and restrictions on consumer credit products. 

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (Dodd-Frank Act (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) ) transferred rulemaking authority under TILA from the Federal Reserve Board to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), effective July 1, 2011.

TILA is intended to protect consumers and ensure competition among financial institutions through the meaningful disclosure of credit terms, allowing consumers to compare standardized credit terms more readily and knowledgeably. Before TILA was enacted, consumers were faced with a bewildering array of credit terms and rates. It was difficult to compare loans because they were rarely presented in the same format. Now, all financial institutions must use the same credit terminology and expressions of rates. In addition to providing a uniform system for disclosures, TILA:

  • Protects consumers against inaccurate and unfair credit billing and credit card practices;
  • Provides consumers with rescission rights;
  • Provides for rate caps on certain dwelling-secured loans;
  • Imposes limitations on home equity lines of credit and certain closed-end home mortgages;
  • Provides minimum standards for most dwelling-secured loans; and
  • Prohibits unfair or deceptive mortgage lending practices.

TILA and Regulation Z do not, however, tell financial institutions how much interest they may charge or whether they must grant a consumer a loan.

The examination procedures will use “TILA” interchangeably for Truth-in-Lending Act and Regulation Z, since Regulation Z is the implementing regulation. Unless otherwise specified, all of the regulation references are to Regulation Z (12 CFR 1026 (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) ).

Associated Risks

Compliance risk can occur when the credit union fails to implement the necessary controls to comply with TILA.

Transaction risk can occur when the credit union does not have adequate internal controls in place and as a result suffers a loss.

Reputation risk can occur when the credit union incurs fines and penalties or decreased member confidence as a result of failure to comply with TILA.

Strategic risk can occur when the board of directors fails to perform necessary due diligence in reviewing policies and procedures, and existing and prospective products and services for compliance.

Examination Objectives

  • To determine if the credit union has policies and procedures to ensure it complies with TILA.
  • To appraise the quality of the credit union’s compliance management system for TILA.
  • To determine the credit union’s compliance with TILA.
  • To initiate corrective action when policies or internal controls are deficient, or when violations of law or regulation are identified.
  • To determine if the credit union will be required to make adjustments to consumer accounts under the restitution provisions of TILA.

Examination Procedures1

A. General Procedures

  1. Obtain information relevant to the area of examination from the credit union‘s compliance management system program (historical examination findings, complaint information, and significant findings from compliance review and audit).
  2. Through discussions with management and review of the following documents, determine whether the credit union’s internal controls are adequate to ensure compliance in the area under review.  Identify procedures the institution uses daily to detect errors/violations promptly.  Also, review the procedures the institution uses to ensure compliance when changes occur (e.g., changes in interest rates, service charges, computation methods, and software programs).
    • Organizational charts
    • Process flowcharts
    • Policies and procedures
    • Loan documentation and disclosures
    • Checklists/worksheets and review documents
    • Computer programs
  3. Review audit or other compliance review work-papers and determine:
    1. The procedures used address all regulatory provisions (see Transactional Testing section).
    2. Steps are taken to follow-up on previously identified deficiencies.
    3. The procedures used include samples that cover all product types and decision centers.
    4. The work performed is accurate (through a review of some transactions).
    5. Significant deficiencies, and the root cause of the deficiencies, are included in reports to management/board.
    6. Corrective actions are timely and appropriate.
    7. The institution reviews the area at an appropriate interval.
  4. Review the credit union’s record retention practices to determine whether the required documentation or evidence of compliance is retained for at least:
    1. Two years after the disclosures were required to be made or other action was required to be taken, other than for the advertising requirements, requirement for mortgages subject to §§ 1026.19(e), (f) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) , and certain requirements for mortgages which are described below. (§ 1026.25(a) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
    2. Three years after the later of the date of consummation, the date disclosures are required to be made, or the date action is required to be taken, for evidence of compliance with §§ 1026.19(e)-(f) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) (regarding closed-end loans that are secured by real property or a cooperative unit and subject to those sections) other than as set forth in 4c below. (§ 1026.25(c)(1)(i) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
    3. Five years after consummation for completed Closing Disclosure forms, and all documents related to these disclosures, as required by §§ 1026.19(f)(1)(i) or (f)(4)(i) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) .  If the loan is sold, transferred, or otherwise disposed of during that time, the credit union must provide a copy of the Closing Disclosure to the owner or servicer as part of the loan file transfer. The new owner or servicer must retain the disclosure for the remainder of the five year period. (§ 1026.25(c)(1)(ii) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
    4. Three years after the date of receipt of payment to show compliance with loan originator compensation requirements. (§ 1026.25(c)(2) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
    5. Three years after consummation to show compliance with ability-to-repay minimum standards (§§ 1026.43(c)-(f) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) ) and prepayment penalty restrictions (§ 1026.43(g) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) ) for loans secured by a dwelling. (§ 1026.25(c)(3) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )

B.Disclosure Forms

Determine if the credit union has changed any TILA disclosure forms or if there are forms that have not been previously reviewed for accuracy. If so verify the accuracy of each disclosure by reviewing the following:

Closed-End Credit Disclosure Forms Review Procedures

Closed-end consumer credit transactions secured by real property or a cooperative unit, other than a reverse mortgage subject to § 1026.33 (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) , are subject to the disclosure, timing and other requirements under the TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure rule (TRID).  Thus, for most closed-end mortgages, including construction-only loans and loans secured by vacant land or by 25 or more acres not covered by RESPA,  the credit union must provide the Loan Estimate and the Closing Disclosure.  There is a partial exemption in § 1026.3(h) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) from the requirement to provide the Loan Estimate and Closing Disclosure if the transaction meets all of the following criteria:

  1. Secured by a subordinate lien;
  2. Transaction is for the purpose of home buyer assistance such as down payments or closing costs, rehabilitation loans, energy efficiency assistance, or foreclosure prevention;
  3. Credit contract does not require the payment of interest;
  4. Credit contact provides for repayment that is forgiven, deferred for 20 years, or deferred until the property is sold or is no longer the consumer’s principal dwelling; and,
  5. Total costs payable by the consumer in connection with the transaction at consummation are limited to:
    1. recording fees,
    2. transfer taxes,
    3. a bona fide and reasonable application fee, and
    4. a bona fide and reasonable fee for housing counseling services; and the total of costs payable by the consumer for the application fee and housing counseling services is less than 1% of the amount of credit extended. 

For those transactions meeting the criteria for a partial exemption, credit unions may provide either a compliant disclosure of the cost of credit under § 1026.18 (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) or a compliant Loan Estimate and Closing Disclosure, and do not need to provide the special information booklet, Good Faith Estimate, or HUD-1 settlement statement.

NOTE: The GFE, HUD-1, and Truth-in-Lending forms continue to be used for transactions covered by the other disclosure requirements of TILA or RESPA (e.g., reverse mortgages) or before the effective date of the TRID Rule (October 3, 2015) (§§ 1026.19(e), (f) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website.

Construction or Construction-Permanent Loan Disclosures

TILA permits treating: (1) a series of advances under an agreement to extend credit up to a certain amount as one transaction, and (2) the construction and permanent phases of a multiple-advance construction loan that may be permanently financed by the same credit union as either one or more than one transaction. (§ 1026.17(c)(6) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) ; Comments 1026.17(c)(6)-1 through -5 (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )

NOTE: A credit union has the option to use the method provided in Appendix D (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) , to calculate the annual percentage rate and other disclosures for construction loans in disclosing construction financing. (Comment 1026.17(c)(6)-2 (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) ) Further, credit unions may use methods in Appendix D (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) to estimate and disclose the terms of multiple-advance construction loans pursuant to § 1026.37 and .38 (Comment 1026 App. D-7 (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )

The following provisions of TILA and associated commentary apply to (1) construction-only, (2) construction-permanent combined (CP Loan-Combined), and/or (3) construction-permanent separate (CP Loan-Separate) disclosures, or some combination of these loan types, as noted. Determine:

  1. Timing of Loan Estimate. Whether the credit union has delivered or placed in the mail the Loan Estimate not later than the third business day after receiving the consumer’s application and not later than the seventh business day before consummation of the transaction. (§ 1026.19(e)(1)(iii) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )

    NOTE: For a CP Loan-Combined, the credit union delivers or places in the mail one combined disclosure within these time frames. (Comment 1026.19(e)(1)(iii)-5 (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )

    NOTE: For a CP Loan-Separate for which an applicant for both the construction and permanent financing has been received (either as one application or a s a separate application), the credit union delivers or places in the mail the separate Loan Estimates for each phase within these timeframes. (Comment 1026.19(e)(1)(iii)-5 (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) ) If the credit union receives the application at separate times, the credit union must provide the Loan Estimate for each phase no later than the time frames applicable to the date it received the specific phase’s application (i.e., if it received the application for the permanent phase three days after the construction phase, it must deliver or place in the mail the permanent phase disclosure not later than the third day after receiving that application, not the construction phase application). (Comment 1026.19(e)(1)(iii)-5 (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )

    NOTE: For a Construction-only transaction for which an application has been received and the credit union is separately disclosing the advances, the credit union delivers or places in the mail separate Loan Estimates for each advance no later than three business days after receiving the consumer’s application. (Comment 1026.19(e)(1)(iii)-1 (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
  2. Allocation of fees and charges when disclosing multiple transaction: Whether fees and charges are allocated in construction-permanent loan or multiple-advance construction-only loan disclosures for purposes of calculating disclosures. (§ 1026.17(c)(6) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )

    NOTE: If the credit union has charged separate amounts for finance charges and points and fees, such amounts are allocated to the phase for which they are charged. (Comment 1026.17(c)(6)-5 (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
    1. CP Loan-Separate. The finance charges and points and fees that would not be imposed but for the construction financing are allocated to the construction phase, and all other finance charges and points and fees are allocated to the permanent financing.
    2. CP Loan-Separate. If a credit union charges a greater origination fee for construction-permanent financing than for construction-only financing, the fee difference is allocated to the permanent phase
    3. CP Loan-Separate. Fees and charges that are not used to compute the finance charge under § 1026.4 (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) or points and fees under § 1026.32(b)(1) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) may be allocated between the transactions in any manner the credit union chooses.
  3. Sale Price
    1. Loan Estimate
      1. For transactions that involve a seller, whether the contract sale price of the property is disclosed. (§ 1026.37(a)(7)(i) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
      2. For transactions that do not involve a seller, whether the estimated value of the property is disclosed as “Prop. Value.” (§ 1026.37(a)(7)(ii) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) ).

        NOTE: For transactions that do not involve a seller and transactions that involve a seller where the sale price is not yet known, the credit union discloses the estimated value of the property based on the best information reasonably available to the credit union at the time the disclosure is provided to the consumer. (Comment 1026.37(a)(7)-1 (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) , § 1026.17(c)(2)(i) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies.

(opens new page).) , and Comment 1026.19(e)A(1)(i)-1)

        NOTE: For transactions involving construction where there is no seller, the credit union has the option to include the estimated value of the improvements to be made on the property. (Comment 1026.37(a)(7)-1) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).)
    2. Closing Disclosure

      2. Where there is no seller, whether the credit union has disclosed the appraised value of the property used to determine approval of the credit transaction. (§ 1026.38(a)(3)(vii)(B (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) ))

        NOTE: If the credit union has not obtained an appraisal, the credit union may disclose the estimated value of the property labeled “Estimated Prop. Value.” (Comment 1026.38(a)(3)(vii)(B) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )

        NOTE: For transactions involving construction where there is no seller, this disclosure must be the value of the property that is used to determine the approval of the credit transaction. That disclosure includes any improvements to be made to the property if those improvements were considered when approving the loan. (Comment 1026.38(a)(3)(vii)-1 (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
  4. Loan Term. Whether the term to maturity of the credit transaction is disclosed. (§§ 1026.37(a)(8) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) , 1026.38(a)(5)(i) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )

    NOTE: For a CP Loan-Combined, the loan term is the total combined term of the construction and permanent periods. (Comment 1026 Appendix D-7.i.A (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) ).

    NOTE: For a CP Loan-Separate (Permanent Phase), the loan term of the permanent financing is counted from the date that interest for the permanent financing periodic payments begins to accrue, regardless of when the permanent phase is disclosed. (Comment 1026 Appendix D-7.i.B (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) ).
  5. Product Type. Whether the loan product description includes:

We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) , 1026.38(a)(5)(iii) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
    2. “Interest Only” feature is disclosed if one or more regular periodic payments may be applied only to interest accrued and not to the loan principal. (§§ 1026.37(a)(10)(ii)(B) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) , 1026.38(a)(5)(iii) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )

      NOTE: If there is a final balloon payment that includes principal (typically construction-only and separate construction phase disclosures), the final balloon payment is excluded for purposes of determining the duration of the “Interest Only” payment period. (Comment 1026 Appendix D-7.ii.A (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )

      NOTE: For a CP Loan-Combined, the “Interest Only” payment period is the full term of the interest-only construction phase, plus any interest-only period in the permanent phase. (Comment 1026 Appendix D-7.ii.B (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
    3. “Adjustable Rate” product is disclosed if the interest rate may increase after consummation, but the rates that will apply or the periods for which they will apply are not known at consummation. (§ 1026.37(a)(10)(i)(A)) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).)

      NOTE: For a CP Loan-Combined and CP Loan-Separate (Permanent Phase), if the interest rate for the permanent phase is not known at consummation for a construction-permanent loan using a single, combined construction-permanent disclosure or using separate disclosures for the permanent phase, the credit union shall disclose the loan product under §§ 1026.37(a)(10) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) and 1026.38(a)(5)(iii) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) as “Adjustable Rate.” (Comment 1026 Appendix D-7.ii.C (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )

      NOTE: For a CP Loan-Combined transaction, if the interest rate for the permanent phase is known at consummation but different from the construction phase interest rate, the product is disclosed as “Step Rate.” (§ 1026.37(a)(10)(i)(B) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) ; Comment 1026 Appendix D-7.ii.C (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
  6. Interest Rate. Whether the interest rate that will be applicable to the transaction at consummation is disclosed; and if the interest rate at consummation is not known for an adjustable rate transaction, whether the fully-indexed rate (i.e., the interest rate calculated using the index value and margin at the time of consummation is disclosed. (§ 1026.37(b)(2) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )

    NOTES: CP Loan-Combined and CP Loan-Separate (Permanent Phase):

    If the permanent phase has an adjustable rate at consummation and separate disclosures are provided, the rate disclosed for the permanent financing is the fully-indexed rate pursuant to § 1026.37(b)(2) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) at the time of the consummation. (Comment 1026 Appendix D-7.iii (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )

    If the permanent phase has a rate that is not known at consummation, the credit union discloses the best information reasonably available at the time the disclosure is provided to the consumer. (Comment 1026.19(e)(1)(i)-1 (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) ; § 1026.17(c)(2)(i) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) ; Comment 1026.17(c)(2)(i)-1 (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )

    If the permanent phase has a fixed rate that will not be adjusted when the construction phase converts to the permanent phase, that rate is used for disclosures. (Comment 1026 Appendix D-7.iii (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )

    If the loan contract secured by a principal dwelling provides that the permanent loan interest rate may adjust at conversion, and such rate adjustment results in a corresponding payment adjustment, and if the interest rate for the permanent phase will be fixed after the conversion, the credit union provides the adjustable rate disclosures in § 1026.20(c) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) . However, if the loan contract secured by a principal dwelling provides that the permanent loan interest rate may adjust at conversion, and such rate adjustment results in a corresponding payment adjustment, and if the interest rate for the permanent phase is adjustable, the credit union provides the adjustable rate disclosures in §§ 1026.20(c) and (d) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) . (Comment 1026 Appendix. D-7.iii (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
  7. Projected Payments. Whether a separate table itemizes each separate periodic payment (or range), together with estimated taxes, insurance and assessments, and escrow account payments. (§§ 1026.37(c) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) , 1026.38(c) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )

    NOTE: For a Construction-Only and CP Loan-Separate (Construction Phase), the construction phase is disclosed according to the requirements for the Projected Payments table, including disclosure of the amounts of any interest-only payments. If the terms of the construction phase do not account for repayment of the entire principal, the credit union must disclose a balloon payment in a separate column, and balloon payment disclosures are provided. (Comment 1026 Appendix D-7.v.A (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )

    NOTE: For a CP Loan-Combined, the Projected Payments table reflects the interest-only payments during the construction phase in the first column, which also reflects the amortizing payments, and mortgage insurance and escrow payments, if any, for the permanent phase if the term of the construction phase is not a full year. (Comment 1026 Appendix D-7.v.B (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )

    NOTE: For a CP Loan-Combined when only the terms of the permanent phase require mortgage insurance or escrow, the disclosure of such amounts depends on whether the first column of the table exclusively discloses the construction phase. If so, the credit union discloses “0” mortgage insurance and/or “-“ for escrow in the first column if the construction phase does not include mortgage insurance or escrow; if payments for both phases are disclosed in the first column, the amount of mortgage insurance premium or any escrow payment for the permanent phase is disclosed in the first column. (Comment 1026 Appendix D-7.v.C (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
  8. Disclosure of Construction Costs. (Construction-only; CP-Combined; CR-Separate Construction Phase)

    NOTE: Construction costs are the costs of improvements to be made to the property that the consumer contracts for in connection with the financing transaction and that will be paid in whole or in part with loan proceeds. (Comment 1026 Appendix D-7.vi.A (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
    1. Loan Estimate. Whether on the Loan Estimate, a credit union factors construction costs into the “funds for borrower” calculation in the Calculating Cash to Close table or the “Payoffs and Payments” calculation in the optional alternative calculating cash to close table for transactions without a seller or for simultaneous subordinate financing. (§ 1026.37(h) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) ; Comment Appendix D-7.vi.B (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
    2. Closing Disclosure. Whether on the Closing Disclosure, a credit union includes construction costs in the “Itemization of amounts due from borrower” in the “Summary of Borrower’s Transaction” (§ 1026.38(j)(1)(v) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) ) and factors them into the “Down payment/funds from borrower” and “Funds for borrower” calculations of the Calculating Cash to Close table or in the “Payoffs and Payments” section of the Closing Cost details in the optional alternative Calculating Cash to Close Table for transactions without a seller or for simultaneous subordinate financing. (§ 1026.38(e) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) as modified under § 1026.38(t)(5)(vii)(B) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) ). (Comment 1026 Appendix D-7.vi.C (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )

      NOTE: If a credit union places a portion of a construction loan’s proceeds in a reserve or other account at consummation, the credit union may separately disclose this from the other construction costs disclosed in the “Itemization of amounts due from borrower” in the Summaries of Transactions table under § 1026.38(j)(1)(v (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) ), if space permits. (Comment 1026 Appendix D-7.vi.D (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) ) The credit union may disclose the amount of such reserve or other account as a separate itemized cost, along with an itemized cost for the balance of the construction costs, under disclosure and calculation options described in Comments 1026 Appendix D-7.vi.B and C (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) .
  9. Inspection and Handling Fees. (Construction-only; CP-Combined; CP-Separate (Construction Phase) Whether inspection and handling fees, which are Loan Costs, are included in the Loan Cost table (or an addendum) and certain disclosures, including “In 5 Years” (§ 1026.37(l)(1) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) ) and “Total of Payments” (§ 1026.38(o)(1) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) ). (§§ 1026.37(f) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) , 1026.38(f) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )

    NOTE: Inspection and handling fees, for the staged disbursement of construction loan proceeds, including draw fees, are part of the finance charge. (Comments 1026.4(a)-1.ii.A, Appendix D-7.vii (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )

We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) ) clearly and conspicuously include the items below. (§ 1026.32(c) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) , Form H-16 in Appendix H (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )

  1. The required statement “you are not required to complete this agreement merely because you have received these disclosures or have signed a loan application. If you obtain this loan, the lender will have a mortgage on your home. You could lose your home, and any money you have put into it, if you do not meet your obligations under the loan.”
  2. The APR.
  3. Amount of the regular monthly (or other periodic) payment and the amount of any balloon payment. The regular payment should include amounts for voluntary items, such as credit life insurance or debt-cancellation coverage, only if the consumer has previously agreed to the amount (Comment 1026.32(c)(3) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) ).
  4. Statement that the interest rate may increase and monthly payment may increase, and the amount of the single maximum monthly payment, based on the maximum interest rate allowed under the contract, if applicable. The amount borrowed. For a closed-end mortgage, the amount borrowed is the total amount borrowed, as reflected by the face amount of the note; and where the amount borrowed includes premiums or other charges for optional credit insurance or debt-cancellation coverage (grouped together with the amount borrowed), that fact shall be stated. For an open-end credit plan, the amount borrowed is the credit limit for the plan when the account is opened.

  5. Where transfer of ownership of the debt to the covered person is or may be recorded in public records or, alternatively, that the transfer of ownership has not been recorded in public records at the time the covered person provides the disclosure; and,
  6. At the option of the covered person, any other relevant information about the transaction.
  7. If there are multiple covered persons, contact information for each of them, unless one of them has been authorized to receive the consumer’s notice of the right to rescind and resolve issues concerning the consumer’s payments on the loan.
  8. If the loan is a closed-end consumer mortgage loan secured by a dwelling or real property, other than a reverse mortgage transaction subject to § 1026.33 (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies.

In addition, if more than one consumer is liable on the obligation, the covered person may mail or deliver the disclosure notice to any consumer who is primarily liable. And, if an acquisition involves multiple covered persons who each acquire a partial interest in the loan pursuant to separate and unrelated agreements, each covered person has a duty to ensure that disclosures related to its acquisition are accurate and provided in a timely manner unless an exception in § 1026.39(c) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website.

    1. If periodic payments that are less than the full amount due are accepted, a statement that the covered person, using the term “lender,” may accept partial payments and apply such payments to the consumer’s loan;
    2. If periodic payments that are less than the full amount due are accepted but not applied to a consumer’s loan until the consumer pays the remainder of the full amount due, a statement that the covered person, using the term “lender,” may hold partial payments in a separate account until the consumer pays the remainder of the payment and then apply the full periodic payment to the consumer’s loan;

We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) in person at the time the open-end (not home-secured) plan is established for financing the purchase of goods or services determine that the credit union discloses in the account-opening table either:
    1. The specific fee applicable to the consumer’s account, or

    1. Annual percentage rate. Each periodic rate that the credit union may use to compute the finance charge on an outstanding balance for purchases, a cash advance, or a balance transfer, expressed as an APR. When more than one rate applies for a category of transactions, determine that the credit union discloses the range of balances to which each rate is applicable. Ensure that the APR for purchases disclosed under this paragraph is in at least 16-point type, except for a penalty rate that may apply upon the occurrence of one or more specific events. (§ 1026.6(b)(2)(i) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
    2. Variable rate information. If the rate is a variable rate, determine that the credit union also disclosed the fact that the rate may vary and how the rate is determined (i.e., identify the type of index or formula used in setting the rate). (§ 1026.6(b)(2)(i)(A) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
    3. Discounted initial rate. If the initial rate is an introductory rate, determine that the credit union disclosed that the rate would otherwise apply to the account. Where the rate is not tied to an index or formula, determine that the credit union disclosed the rate that will apply after the introductory rate expires. For a variable rate account, determine that the credit union disclosed a rate based on the applicable index or formula in accordance with the accuracy requirements. (§ 1026.6(b)(2)(i)(B) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
    4. Premium initial rate. If the initial rate is temporary and is higher than the rate that will apply after the temporary rate expires, determine that the credit union disclosed the premium initial rate.

We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
    5. Penalty rates. Except for introductory rates and employee preferential rates (discussed below), if the rate is a penalty rate, determine that the credit union disclosed as part of the APR disclosure the increased rate that may apply, a brief description of the event or events that may result in the increased rate, and a brief description of how long the increased rate will remain in effect. (§ 1026.6(b)(2)(i)(D)(1) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
    6. Introductory rates. If the credit union discloses in the table an introductory rate, as that term is defined in § 1026.16(g)(2)(ii) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) , determine that the credit union briefly disclosed directly beneath the table the circumstances under which the introductory rate may be revoked, and the rate that will apply after the introductory rate is revoked. (§ 1026.6(b)(2)(i)(D)(2) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
    7. Employee preferential rates. If the credit union discloses in the table a preferential APR for which only employees of the credit union, employees of a third party, or other individuals with similar affiliations with the credit union or third party are eligible, determine that the credit union briefly disclosed directly beneath the table the circumstances under which the preferential rate may be revoked, and the rate that will apply after the preferential rate is revoked. (§ 1026.6(b)(2)(i)(D)(3) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
    8. Point of sale where APRs vary by state or based on creditworthiness. If the credit union imposes an APR that varies by state or based on the consumer’s creditworthiness and provides required disclosures in person at the time the open-end (not home-secured) plan is established for financing the purchase of goods or services, determine that the credit union discloses either: (§ 1026.6(b)(2)(i)(E) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
      1. The specific APR applicable to the consumer’s account, or
      2. The range of the APRs, if the disclosure includes a statement that the APR varies by state or will be determined based on the consumer’s creditworthiness and refers the consumer to the account agreement or other disclosure the credit union provided with the account-opening table where the credit union disclosures the AP applicable to the consumer’s account. Determine that the credit union does not list APRs for multiple states in the account opening table.
    9. Credit card accounts under an open-end (not home-secured) consumer credit plan. Determine that the issuer discloses in the table: (§ 1026.6(b)(2)(i)(F) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
      1. Any introductory rate, and
      2. Any rate that would apply upon expiration of a premium initial rate.
    10. Fees for issuance or availability. Determine that the credit union disclosed any annual or periodic fee that it may impose for the issuance or availability of an open-end plan (including any fee based on account activity or inactivity); how frequently it will impose the fee; and the annualized amount of the fee. (§ 1026.6(b)(2)(ii) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
    11. Fixed finance charge and minimum interest charge. Determine that the credit union disclosed any fixed finance charge and any minimum interest charge if it exceeds $1.00 that the credit union can impose during a billing cycle, and a brief description of the charge. (§ 1026.6(b)(2)(iii) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
    12. Non-periodic Fee. Determine that the credit union disclosed any non-periodic fee that relates to opening the plan. A credit union must disclose that the fee is a one-time fee. (§ 1026.6(b)(2)(ii)(B) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
    13. Transaction charges. Determine that the credit union discloses any transaction charge the credit union imposes for use of the open-end plan for purchases. (§ 1026.6(b)(2)(iv) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
    14. Grace period. The date by which or the period within which any credit extended may be repaid without incurring a finance charge due to a periodic interest rate and any conditions on the availability of the grace period. If the credit union does not provide a grace period, the credit union must disclose that fact. If the length of the grace period varies, the credit union may disclose the range of days, the minimum number of days, or the average number of the days in the grace period, if the disclosure is identified as a range, minimum, or average. In disclosing in the tabular format a grace period that applies to all features on the account, the credit union must use the phrase “How to Avoid Paying Interest” as the heading for the row describing the grace period. If a grace period is not offered on all features of the account, in disclosing this fact in the tabular format, the credit union must use the phrase “Paying Interest” as the heading for the row describing this fact. (§ 1026.6(b)(2)(v) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies. (opens new page).) )
    15. Balance computation method. Determine that the credit union disclosed in the account opening disclosures the name of the balance computation method that is used to determine the balance on which the finance charge is computed for each feature, or an explanation of the method it used if it is not listed, along with a statement that an explanation of the methods required by section 1026.6(b)(4)(i)(D) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website.
