Understand the Impact of Redlining: The Practice of Denying Financial Services to Certain Neighborhoods
As a Mortgage Loan Originator or anyone who manages or directs an MLO in the course of business, have you ever heard/said the following or anything similar to the these statements in regards to limiting neighborhoods access to financial services?

"I don't touch loans under a certain amount...why should I, they are just as much work as a larger loan and I don't make enough to deal with them"

"Loans under $(x) aren't worth my time"

"I have a minimum loan amount and I won't do anything under $(x)

"I don't originate mortgage loans in that area"

These statements or mindsets inside your organization are a direct violation of Fair Lending Laws, specifically under HMDA Reg-C and ECOA and are considered to be Redlining which whether intentional or not, could lead to racial discrimination and ethnic composition issues for your financial services company/
