The Nebraska Department of Banking and Finance today announced that it has joined a 35 State settlement agreement with CitiFinancial and its mortgage lending entities. The agreement between CitiFinancial and state mortgage regulators was executed after an examination conducted by the Massachusetts Division of Banks to determine compliance with state and federal consumer protection laws. The examination found that CitiFinancial had failed to report 91,127 residential mortgage loans to the federal government as required by the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA), including 472 Nebraska loans that were not reported. The mortgage loans that were omitted from CitiFinancial’s HMDA Loan Application Register were originated between 2004 through 2007. The underreporting of the mortgage loans was apparently caused by an internal systems error at CitiFinancial that went undetected until the Massachusetts examination.
