State-licensed mortgage loan originators in New York must take 11 hours of continuing education each year: 3 hours of Federal law, 2 hours of ethics, 2 hours of non-traditional mortgage lending, 1 hour of elective content, and 3 hours on New York laws, rules, and regulations.

This state law portion begins with a review of the regulatory framework for MLOs that has developed since New York State passed the Home Equity Theft Prevention Act (HETPA) followed by the federal SAFE Act of 2008. The first module in this class also covers Temporary Authority and Surety Bond requirements in New York.

The second module begins by addressing recent NYS developments including major changes to how reverse mortgages are processed in the state. The bulk of the second module is devoted to a wide-ranging, engaging look at investigative and enforcement efforts by the NY Department of Financial Services (DFS). The course concludes with an examination of the latest DFS Consumer Protection and Financial Enforcement Report.

To promote comprehension, students will complete a 5-question quiz and short activity based on real-world examples after each module. A 25-question final exam will wrap up the state law portion.

The first module of the eight-hour portion is about sweeping laws and rules that apply to mortgage loans and mortgage loan originators across the country. A review of the SAFE Act, Regulation Z, ECOA, and the TRID Integrated Mortgage Disclosures make up the bulk of this module. 

The second module deals with ethical considerations and consumer protection. A discussion of business ethics and the duties that apply to financial services professionals start us off. Then, topics related to consumer protection and the requirements under the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA) take center stage. The promotion of fair lending practices are emphasized. After that, the current state of mortgage fraud in the United States is addressed, and we will examine ways to identify and deter different types of mortgage fraud.

The third module looks at a variety of non-traditional mortgage loan products and the increased risks and scrutiny that accompany most alternatives to the 30-year fixed rate mortgage loan. We will examine adjustable rate mortgages (ARMs), reverse mortgages, high-cost and higher-priced mortgage loans, counseling requirements, and information on lending standards. Other types of loans and financing options are also discussed, including government programs such as FHA, VA, and USDA loans.

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.

Recent updates and insights will be provided throughout the four modules. Each module will be followed by an assessment that consists of a five question quiz and an activity in which students will read a short scenario and then answer questions about the scenario. A 25 question final will wrap up the 8 hour portion.
