Home Equity Lending

Texas community banks were able to make home equity loans for nearly two decades and with the exception of the line of credit (HELOC) addition, not much really changed. After Proposition 2 passed in November, SJR 60 amended the constitution and created significant changes for both home equity lenders and borrowers effective January 1, 2018. Implementation has begun and getting lenders, loan processors, and compliance staff trained immediately is critical.

This recorded series will allow you to experience the IBAT Home Equity Summit held in January 2018. This live recording will include IBAT compliance staff, Kelly Goulart and Janie Daniel, as they participate with host Karen Neeley, IBAT General Counsel and Senior Attorney with Kennedy Sutherland LLP, for discussions on home equity lending. The entire series will encompass topics that cover the basic and complex issues for the compliance requirements of the Texas Constitution, Texas Finance Code, Proposition 2, and Federal Laws that come into play. Karen will review what has changed and just as importantly what has not changed for home equity lending programs in Texas. Karen uses her wit and wisdom in sharing some past Supreme Court of Texas decisions that home equity lenders should know.
