REAL ESTATE LOAN MATRIX
This tool was designed to assist loan officers when making real estate loans. Once you determine the collateral and the loan purpose, the Real Estate Matrix tells you which regulations apply and when you must provide certain disclosures. The Real Estate Matrix also provides a brief description of the regulatory requirements. Examiners from all regulatory agencies also use this Real Estate Matrix.
You may download the Matrix and distribute it to your loan officers.
