TREAS/OCC RIN: 1557-AE08 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: ●Appraisals for Higher-Priced Mortgage Loans Exemption Threshold 

The OCC, the FRB, and the CFPB issued a proposed rule amending the official interpretations for their regulations that implement section 129H of the Truth in Lending Act, which establishes special appraisal requirements for higher-risk mortgages.” The banking agencies, the CFPB, the NCUA and the FHFA issued joint final rules implementing these requirements, which exempted, among other loan types, transactions of $25,000 or less, and required that this loan amount be adjusted annually based on any annual percentage increase in the Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPIW).  If there is no annual percentage increase in the CPIW, the OCC, the FRB and the CFPB will not adjust this exemption threshold from the prior year. The proposal would memorialize this as well as the calculation method for determining the adjustment in years following a year in which there is no annual percentage increase in the CPIW.
