The loan type is one of the data points that will not undergo any changes under the new HMDA regulation. This information can be found on the application and the reporting process is very straightforward. If the loan is not insured by anyone, then it would be considered a Conventional loan and Code 1 would be reported. An institution reports Code 2 if the application is insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). Also, if the Veterans Administration (VA) is guaranteeing the loan, then Code 3 is reported on the LAR. Finally, an institution reports the Loan Type as being Code 4 if the USDA Rural Housing Service (RHS) or the Farm Service Agency (FSA) is guaranteeing the application.
