Which Fed Regulation covers notifying the borrower of loan sale?

Deal Score0

Ironically, I was a mortgage Compliance Officer for 10 years, But I can’t seem to recall which federal regulation covers the requirement that a bank is required to notify the borrower when the bank sells the borrower’s loan to another investor. I’m thinking it’s a Reg C (HMDA) issue, but I can’t find that specific section.

My question is, even if a bank retains the loan servicing rights (i.e. receives the monthly payments), isn’t the bank still required to notify the borrower of the sale of the loan? I know the lender must notify the borrower when selling the loan AND servicing (as the borrower must know where to send payments), but what about just selling the loan to an investor (e.g. Fannie Mae or Freddy Mac)? Isn’t the lender still required to notify the borrower of the sale?

Please help. Thx.

    (2) The Agency will charge protective advances against the borrower’s account as necessary to protect the Agency’s interests during liquidation in accordance with §765.203 of this chapter.

    (3) When no surviving family member or third party assumes or repays a deceased borrower’s loan in accordance with part 765, subpart J, of this chapter, or when the estate does not otherwise fully repay or sell loan security to repay a deceased borrower’s FLP loans, the Agency will liquidate the security as quickly as possible in accordance with State and local requirements.

    (b) Liquidation for Program borrowers. (1) If the borrower does not apply, does not accept, or is not eligible for primary loan servicing, conservation contract, market value buyout or homestead protection, and all administrative appeals are concluded, the Agency will accelerate the borrower’s account in accordance with §§766.355 and 766.356, as appropriate.

    (2) Borrowers may voluntarily liquidate their security in accordance with §§766.352, 766.353 and 766.354. In such case, the Agency will:

    (ii) The borrower is unable to pay the costs from personal funds or have the purchaser pay;

    (iii) The costs must be paid to complete the sale;

    (iv) Costs are not for postage and insurance of the note while in transit when required for the Agency to present the promissory note to the recorder to obtain a release of a portion of the real property from the mortgage.
