View Course Syllabus

This course will instruct mortgage loan originators on a number of regulations that they will have to comply with while taking part in their mortgage loan origination activities.

In the first module of this course we'll discuss the federal laws that regulate the mortgage industry. Our attention will first be focused on the Truth in Lending Act (12 CFR Part 1026 [Regulation Z]). The second topic focuses on the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (12 CFR 1024 [Regulation X]). These two federal laws are designed to protect the consumer when going through the process of applying for and obtaining credit.

The second module is written with a focus on consumer protection and proper mortgage advertising practices as defined by the CFPB's Mortgage Acts and Practices Advertising Rule (MAP Rule), the advertisement regulations of TILA and RESPA, and the FTC Advertising Rules. In this module you'll be provided with a better understanding of laws that protect consumers from untruthful mortgage advertising.

The third module will review the compliance requirements of the Bank Secrecy Act in regards to Anti-Money Laundering and the reporting of Suspicious Activity. It is designed to fulfill the training requirements of the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) 31 CFR § 1010 and § 1029.

The fourth and last module covers unique mortgage product solutions for unique customers. We'll cover several non-traditional mortgages such as the 203(k) rehabilitation loan from FHA, several energy efficient loan products, and Fannie Mae's HomeReady® Mortgage Program.

Topics and Learning Objectives

This course is broken down into several learning topics. At the end of the course a 25-question final exam will be given. The topics included in this course are:

  1. Federal Laws That Regulate Lending – TILA and RESPA (150 minutes)

Total study time: 7 clock hours

Module 1: Federal Laws that Regulate Lending – TILA and RESPA

Title I of the Consumer Credit Protection Act, known as the Truth in Lending Act (TILA), was first enacted in 1968. The provisions of TILA are implemented by Regulation Z. The Real Estate Procedures Act was enacted in 1976, and its provisions are implemented by Regulation X. These two federal laws help consumers better understand the financial terms they are obligating themselves to. TILA requires creditors to issue a good faith estimate of costs associated with the credit being offered, while RESPA discloses the costs of settlement services and prohibits unethical kickbacks between mortgage licensees. This module will outline both of these federal regulations.

This module is written with a focus on consumer protection. Most, if not all of the regulations of the mortgage and banking industry are implemented to protect the consumer. In this module you'll be provided with a better understanding of laws that protect consumers from untruthful mortgage advertising. Understanding what you can and cannot do in regard to advertising loan products is vital when dealing with the public and promoting your services. As an advocate for your customer it is up to you to be diligent in your understanding of the laws and regulations affecting our industry, how they affect you in your business, and how to adhere to them for compliance and consumer protection.

This module will explain several non-traditional mortgage products, exploring other options available to borrowers such as the Federal Housing Administration's 203(k) property rehabilitation loan, four types of energy efficient mortgage products, and the Fannie Mae HomeReady® rehab loan product.
