Subprime mortgage lendingWhat is the "guidance"?

Because of concerns about problems with subprime mortgage lending, the federal government issued the Interagency Guidance on Nontraditional Mortgage Product Risks and a Statement on Subprime Mortgage Lending (collectively, "the guidance"). In 2007, the governor convened the Washington state task force for homeowner security. The task force recommended including the federal guidance in state legislation. The 2008 Washington state legislature enacted SHB 2770, requiring the department of financial institutions to apply the two guidance documents to financial institutions in Washington. Starting in 2008, credit unions, banks, savings banks, savings associations, mortgage brokers and other Washington state consumer loan companies (collectively, "financial institutions") must have policies and procedures that use the guidance.
