A Survey and other Important Information

Some very important information has been coming down the pipeline and I wanted to share it with you immediately.

The Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) issued a final rule  about extending anti-money laundering (AML) and suspicious activity reporting (SAR) requirements to non-bank residential mortgage lenders and originators (RMLOs – Additional information is here about defining a RMLOs, etc. FINcen Final AML Rule for Non-Bank Mortgage Lenders 2-17-2012).  Now by August the RMLOs will be required to implements AML and SAR programs.

MHI working with McGlinchey-Stafford to create templates to assist lenders, community owners and retailers in becoming compliant with this rule.  We are asking MHI members to complete the survey in a PDF (NOLADB-#998207-v1-MHI_Member_Questionnaire_for_AML_and_SAR_Programs) or in a Word document MHI_Member_Questionnaire_for_AML_and_SAR_Programs.

In addition, we are requesting that lenders and also MHI members that could possibly be considered RMLOs such as community owners/operators, manufactured housing retailers, etc. to complete the survey.

Please follow the directions and note the information within the survey is kept strictly confidential.  Please return at your earliest convenience.  You can return your survey to Marc Lifset at mlifset@mcglinchey.com or by fax at 518.432.7290.  Feel free to contact Marc if there are any questions about the survey.  Your assistance will help us all more easily comply with this new regulatory requirement.
