Home Mortgage Disclosure Act
The Home Mortgage Disclosure Act, enacted by Congress in 1975, legislates the reporting of loan data by lending institutions. This includes geographic distribution of applications and loans: race, sex, ethnicity, and income of borrowers and applicants, and information about loan denials and approvals. This data is reported by the lending institutions on the first of March for applications and loans of the previous year. Lenders need to have the information available within 30 days of the request but not earlier than March 31st, if requested.
The Federal Equal Credit Opportunity Act
The Federal Equal Credit Opportunity Act prohibits creditors from discriminating against credit applicants on the basis of color, race, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, age (providing the applicant has the capacity to enter into a binding contract); because all or part of the applicant’s income derives from any public assistance; or because the applicant has in good faith exercised any right under the Consumer Credit Protection Act.
