What Is ‘HMDA’?:

What Is ‘HMDA’? Nathan Carlisle


The HMDA Scrutiny is Intense Those who act as regulators to ensure lending practices are on the ‘up and up’, have the duty of determining whether or not lending institutions are meeting the needs of the potential borrowers in a given community.  This means government-backed lenders who offer any type of mortgage are obligated to reveal the number of and the monetary value of all approved residential mortgages that were provided within the previous year; and this would also include the specific communities that received those loans.


Public Disclosure Disclosure statements intended for public viewing would include the following information regarding: 1: Loans: includes data concerning applications, amounts and types of loans, reasons for denials etc. 2:  Applicants:  includes demographics including ethnicity and gender 3:  Lenders:  includes names of lenders and which agencies regulate them
