The Senate is poised to roll back rules meant to root out discrimination by mortgage lenders

The Senate is poised to pass a bill this week that would weaken the government’s ability to enforce fair-lending requirements, making it easier for community banks to hide discrimination   against minority mortgage applicants and harder for regulators to root out predatory lenders.

The sweeping bill rolls back banking rules passed after the 2008 financial crisis, including a little-known part of the Dodd-Frank Act that required banks and credit unions to report more detailed lending data so abuses could be spotted.

The bipartisan plan, which is expected to pass, would exempt 85 percent of banks and credit unions from the new requirement, according to a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau analysis of 2013 data.

The mortgage industry says the expanded data requirements are onerous and costly, especially for small lenders. But civil rights and consumer advocates say the information is critical to identifying troubling patterns that warrant further investigation by regulators.

Megabank Chase rarely lends to DC minorities – and it's likely legal

Across the street from the White House is the U.S. capital’s only outpost of the nation’s largest bank – tucked away on the ninth floor of a gray stone tower.

The bank’s name, JPMorgan Chase & Co., appears on the directory in the building’s lobby. According to the company’s website, the office features “a team of dedicated specialists” who offer a “comprehensive range of financing choices, including mortgages and lines of credit.”

But the office is not open to the public. Stop by and security will turn you away. And while the bank has a team of professionals designed to serve the district’s rich, it is not technically a branch. So, in Washington, Chase doesn’t have to abide by the Community Reinvestment Act – a 1977 law designed to reverse the legacy of redlining, or racial discrimination in lending. The law requires banks to lend in low- and moderate-income areas only if they have a branch in the area that takes deposits.

And so, even though Chase rarely lends to low-income residents or people of color, who make up a majority of the region’s population, it is not breaking the law.

Does anyone know of any lenders that are willing to do a 80% first mortgage?

I need a lender who can do a 80% first mortgage, and have the seller carryback the 20% second. I am in washington state. Please advise. I have alot of clients that needs this type of financing.

Plenty of lenders will still allow it. ING for one if you don't mind your clients being taken by their retail side.

Problem is - where are you going to find someone stupid enough to do the 20% second? The 80% is easy...
