Last-Minute QM Doublecheck

An Inside Mortgage Finance Webinar

Recorded December 12, 2013


The new ability-to-repay or so-called “qualified mortgage” rule requires all mortgage originators to meet specific ATR requirements and supply the necessary documentation to support that compliance. It also requires lenders to fully understand the risks of making mortgages that don’t meet the new QM standards.

Make sure you haven’t overlooked any important considerations when the new ATR/QM rule takes effect. Listen as a panel of experts provides you and your team with an 11th hour review of this major rule and its requirements.

You’ll hear from:

  • Richard Andreano, Partner, Ballard Spahr
  • Suzanne Garwood, Partner, Venable
  • Joseph Reilly, Partner, BuckleySandler

During the 90-minute webinar, we’ll address:

  • What you should be including in the points-and-fees test,
  • What changes you need to make in quality control to make sure your QMs really are QMs,
  • What the triggers are that earn you a QM exception,
  • How to handle affiliate charges, and
  • How to use documentation to safeguard your safe harbor.

After the November elections, how long will it take for a new Congress and White House to pass GSE reform legislation?

I’m confident a bill will be passed the first year.


2 to 3 years. GSE reform is complicated.


Sadly it won’t happen in a Clinton or Trump first term.


Not in my lifetime.
