Do you have the new ATR/QM rules down pat?

Now that the 43 percent DTI rule is gone, do you know what to do?  This webinar will provide the details, options, sample policy, and best practices you need to comply with the final rules.
  • Understand the requirements of the QM final rules
  • Determine which loans are affected by the ATR/QM rules
  • Define the qualified mortgage options and conditions for each
  • Use best practices and tools to determine a consumer’s ability to repay
  • Identify which institutions qualify as “small creditors” and which elements of the QM rules apply


The ATR/QM rules require lenders to make a reasonable, good faith determination of a consumer’s ability to repay any residential mortgage loan.  The original general QM rules provided that a borrower’s debt-to-income (DTI) ratio could not exceed 43 percent. However, as of October 1, 2022, financial institutions must adhere to the revised general QM definition which eliminates this restriction and replaces it with priced-based thresholds tiered to the loan amount and lien position. 

This session will dive into the details of the final QM rules and provide best practices for how to ensure your policies and procedures accurately reflect the changes.  It will also review the seven ability-to-repay (ATR) options and provide guidance on how to not only implement the new changes, but to strengthen your current ATR/QM compliance program.  


This informative session will benefit loan officers, loan operations personnel, compliance officers, and internal auditors.
