    Must we collect government monitoring when refinancing HELOCs? We are a HMDA reportable bank but do not report HELOCs. 🙄

    Reg B doesn’t require you to collect in that situation.

    You see conflicting information on this, but I thought that ECOA (Reg B) required you to get the government monitoring information if the HELOC was to purchase or refinance the principal dwelling of the person.

    You must get government monitoring information If the answer is Yes to all of the following:
    1. Is the applicant a natural person?
    2. Does the application involve the purchae or refinance of a dwelling?
    3. Doe the dwelling contain one to four (1-4) units?
    4. Is the dwelling (or will it become within 1 year) the applicant’s PRINCIPAL DWELLING?
    5. Is the dwelling collateral for the loan?

    Tstrait, is correct about the five questions. HELOCs are typically not for the purchase or refinance of dwelling. This is not the intended purpose for HELOC products and generally would not apply, but there is an outside chance that they may.
