Choose your examination adventure: are you Winston Churchill or Neville Chamberlain?

by ,

first_imgby: Shelbey NeilWinston Churchill once said, “To build may have to be the slow and laborious task of years. To destroy can be the thoughtless act of a single day.”Financial institutions can surely relate to that quote—compliance is certainly the slow and laborious task of years and then your examiner comes in and can, so it seems, destroy your hard work in the matter of a day. That’s why examinations can feel like a power struggle between institution and examiner—and examiners typically have the upper hand. But there is a way to help tip the scales back in your favor and assert control of your examination.Before I get to that, however, one thing to keep in mind is that nothing presented below is meant to suggest an attempt to divert your examiner’s attention from important issues. However, you want to be the one supplying them with relevant material to review. Otherwise, you can expect your examiner to spend his or her time delving in any number of directions, the outcome of which is uncertain and is sure to lead to follow-up questions after reviewing an entire loan file.These questions are often posed well after the fact and may be directed at a loan officer, who, lacking adequate documentation for decisions and processes, is forced to rely on his or her memory. That’s not easy for anybody to do. Next thing you know, your loan officer may be saying things that aren’t compliant and you have just triggered a lot more scrutiny, a difficult examination, and even the potential for civil monetary penalties and referrals. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Are you communicating enough with your appraisers? (Part 1)

by ,

first_img 5SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Effective October 3rd, property appraisals will generally be subject to a zero tolerance threshold under the Integrated Disclosure Rule (“TRID”). TRID provides that fees paid for a third-party settlement service for which the member is not permitted to shop fall into the zero tolerance category. What this means for your credit union is that the appraisal fee you disclose on the Loan Estimate must be exactly what the member is required to pay at closing, absent the occurrence of a valid changed circumstance. In this two-part blog series we’ll identify the challenges associated with this requirement and the steps your credit union can take to be compliant.What Is All The Fuss About?Currently under the RESPA rules governing the Good Faith Estimate (“GFE”), the appraisal fee falls within the 10% tolerance category. This means that the member may be asked to pay more for the appraisal if for some reason the cost of the report increases between application and closing. This has led many cooperatives to take the approach of disclosing a “ballpark” appraisal fee on the GFE. Obviously after October 3rd this approach will no longer work. Remember the old idiom – close only counts in horseshoes (and hand grenades).So what happens if upon further inspection of the property some of its features have your appraiser calling and asking for more money to complete the report? Is the answer to just inflate the cost of every appraisal on the Loan Estimate? Because the rule only provides that the member cannot pay MORE at closing, right? Not so fast. Regulation Z provides that a credit union must disclose an estimate of settlement charges on the Loan Estimate in good faith and consistent with the best information reasonably available at the time of the disclosure. So now what? continue reading »last_img read more

Trump campaign files libel suit against New York Times over Russia story

by ,

first_imgThe lawsuit originated with the Trump re-election campaign, but Trump himself has contended the Times has at times been biased against him.Trump often refers to various news media outlets as “fake news” and has called elements of the US news media “the enemy of the American people.”Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller documented Moscow’s campaign of hacking and social media propaganda to boost Trump’s 2016 candidacy and harm his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.It documented numerous contacts between people associated between Trump’s campaign and Russians. Mueller found insufficient evidence to show a criminal conspiracy between Trump’s team and Russia but did not exonerate Trump of obstruction of justice related to the investigation.In the opinion piece, Frankel stated, “Collusion – or a lack of it – turns out to have been the rhetorical trap that ensnared President Trump’s pursuers.”Frankel added, “There was no need for detailed electoral collusion between the Trump campaign and Vladimir Putin’s oligarchy because they had an overarching deal: the quid of help in the campaign against Hillary Clinton for the quo of a new pro-Russian foreign policy, starting with relief from the Obama administration’s burdensome economic sanctions. The Trumpites knew about the quid and held out the prospect of the quo.””Today the President’s re-election campaign filed suit against the New York Times for falsely stating the Campaign had an ‘overarching deal’ with ‘Vladimir Putin’s oligarchy’ to ‘help the campaign against Hillary Clinton’ in exchange for ‘a new pro-Russian foreign policy, starting with relief from … economic sanctions,'” said Jenna Ellis, senior legal adviser to Donald J. Trump for President, Inc.”The statements were and are 100 percent false and defamatory. The complaint alleges The Times was aware of the falsity at the time it published them, but did so for the intentional purpose of hurting the campaign, while misleading its own readers in the process,” Ellis said.In a copy of the lawsuit provided by his re-election team, the campaign stated, “The Times was well aware when it published these statements that they were not true.”  The lawsuit relates to a March 27, 2019, opinion article written by Max Frankel, who served as executive editor of the Times from 1986 to 1994.The campaign attached to a news release a draft copy of the suit accusing the newspaper of “extreme bias against (the campaign) and animosity” and cited what it called the Times’ “exuberance to improperly influence the presidential election in November 2020.” Trump is seeking re-election on Nov. 3.The Times did not have an immediate comment.The opinion piece was headlined, “The Real Trump-Russia Quid Pro Quo” with a subhead adding, “The campaign and the Kremlin had an overarching deal: help beat Hillary Clinton for a new pro-Russian foreign policy.” Quid pro quo is a Latin term meaning a favor in exchange for a favor. President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign said on Wednesday it filed a libel suit against the New York Times accusing the newspaper of intentionally publishing a false opinion article related to Russian interference in the 2016 US election.In an escalation of the Republican president’s long-running battle with the news media, campaign officials said the lawsuit was being filed in New York State Supreme Court, the state’s trial-level court.A statement from the campaign said the aim of the litigation was to “hold the news organization accountable for intentionally publishing false statements against President Trump’s campaign.”center_img Topics :last_img read more

Craig’s gay marriage views ‘don’t matter’ – Key

by ,

first_img3News 12 November 2013Prime Minister John Key says Colin Craig’s deeply held opposition to gay marriage won’t be a stumbling block when it comes to forming a potential coalition after next year’s election.With National’s poll ratings beginning to slip and current partners ACT and United facing oblivion, Mr Key has in recent weeks begun openly courting Mr Craig’s untested Conservative Party.Polling  at 2.7 percent in the latest 3 News/Reid Research poll, if the Conservatives were to win a seat they could be National’s ticket to a third term in power. And with the latest census showing strong population growth on the North Shore, the  creation of a new electorate overlapping Mr Craig’s support base could see the two leaders sit down for a ‘cup of tea’ ahead of the election.They’re yet to meet face-to-face to discuss a deal, but Mr Key says that’s likely to change in the new year.“I think he can read the public messaging that I’ve been putting out there, and he can also read your poll and see that in principle, if he won a seat it would be a guaranteed National-Conservatives government,” Mr  Key said on Firstline this morning.http://www.3news.co.nz/Craigs-gay-marriage-views-dont-matter—Key/tabid/1607/articleID/320966/Default.aspx#.UoFYqtT2-Ullast_img read more
