Complying with the open-ended provisions of Regulation Z is a complicated issue. There are many intricate requirements to follow, from disclosures, servicing, and advertising.

This webinar will focus on the personal/overdraft lines and HELOC requirements. We will discuss how to ensure all the Reg. Z rules are followed, especially around disclosures. We’ll also touch on some of the other rules that impact HELOCs, such as appraisal rules and the coming HMDA requirements.
