Redlining is Red Hot

Aired: Tuesday, August 29, 2017

2.0 CRCM, 2.0 CLBB

Redlining, "a form of illegal disparate treatment in which a lender provides unequal access to credit, or unequal terms of credit, because of the race, color, national orgin, or other prohibited characteristic(s) of the residents of the area in which the credit seeker resides or will reside or in which the residential property to be mortgaged is located," continues to be a hot topic in bank supervision and enforcement.

The Department of Justice ended 2016 and began 2017 with redlining enforcement actions against three banks. The CFPB's stated fair lending priorities for 2017 include redlining. Banking regulators are focusing on Reasonably Expected Market Areas (REMAs) in addition to Community Reinvestment Act assessment areas in evaluating lending performance. How can you assess your risk and protect your institution from charges of redlining?
