The second module deals with ethical considerations and consumer protection. An MLO’s ethical responsibilities and the ATR/QM rule are demonstrated. Then, fraud, both from within and outside of the mortgage industry makes up the second half of the module. Fair lending practices and balancing one’s business aspirations with the health of the market are emphasized.
The third module examines non-traditional mortgage loan products like adjustable rate mortgages and reverse mortgages. The HECM program is featured, along with its changes, its current state, plans for adjustment, and how the world of non-traditional mortgage lending might be evolving.
Finally, the fourth module provides information on renovation mortgage loans in general, including what they are and when to use them, with a focus on Fannie Mae HomeStyle® and FHA 203(k) renovation loans.
A final exam will ask 25 questions randomly drawn from the general education portion of the package.
The 4 hour section on New Jersey laws and regulations fulfills the state elective requirement for annual renewal. Mortgage loan originators and qualified individuals in the state must take 12 hours of continuing education each year, with 3 hours being dedicated to federal law, 2 hours of ethics, 2 hours of non-traditional mortgage lending, 1 hour elective, and these 4 hours of state-specific content.
We'll begin with an overview of the implementing Administrative Codes for the Residential Mortgage Licensing Act (RMLA), breaking it down by subchapter and focusing on topics like licensing, record retention and accuracy, advertising, insurance, and other financial considerations related to mortgage lending. Next are details from the Home Ownership Security Act and RMLA as it is codified in New Jersey's statutes. Prohibited practices, recent enforcement actions in the state, and current events will round off the first module.
The second module is a thorough exploration into the history, makeup, and warning signs of money laundering. We'll examine recent cases, anti-money laundering legislation, and the role of mortgage professionals in catching, stopping, and reporting on suspicious activity.
To promote comprehension, students will complete a 5-question quiz and short activity after each module. A 25-question final exam will wrap up the course.
