Subpart D - Actions on Applications; Review of Credit Decisions

617.7300 When acting on a loan application, what are the notice requirements and review rights?
Each qualified lender must make its decision on a loan application as quickly as possible. The qualified lender must provide prompt written notice of its decision to the applicant. The qualified lender is required to notify all primary applicants. If a loan application has more than one primary applicant, the qualified lender may send the original notice to the applicant designated to receive notices and may send copies to all other applicants. If the qualified lender makes an adverse credit decision on a loan application, the notice must include:
(a) The specific reasons for the qualified lender’s decision;
(b) A statement that the applicant may request a review of the decision;
(c) A statement that a written request for review must be made within 30 days after the applicant receives the qualified lender’s notice; and
(d) A brief explanation of the process for seeking review of the decision, including the independent collateral evaluation review process, whom to contact for access to information, and the applicant’s right to appear in person before the credit review committee (CRC).
