Perhaps, the loans which are covered are loans for financial assistance which means a loan or advance of credit secured by property where more than 50 percent of the proceeds are for the purchase, construction, rehabilitation, improvement or cash out refinancing of a housing accommodation. Licensees making residential mortgages should consult with their internal compliance officers regarding whether they are required to file the state report.
