REGULATION Z: ADJUSTMENT TO THE DOLLAR AMOUNT THAT TRIGGERS ADDITIONAL DISCLOSURE REQUIREMENTS.
Under the revision to the Board's staff commentary to Regulation Z, the dollar amount of the fee-based trigger has been adjusted from $451 for 2000 to $465 for 2001 based on the annual percentage change reported in the Consumer Price Index as of June 1, 2000. The adjustment is effective January 1, 2001.
The Home Ownership and Equity Protection Act of 1994 bars credit terms such as balloon payments and requires additional disclosures when total points and fees payable by the consumer exceed $400 (to be adjusted annually) or 8 percent of the total loan amount, whichever is larger.
