NCUA takes up appraisal rule, TCCUSF oversight budget today

first_imgThe NCUA Board today will vote on its final rule on appraisals, review the Economic Growth and Regulatory Paperwork Reduction Act and address the 2015 oversight budget for the Temporary Corporate Credit Union Stabilization Fund.The proposed final rule on appraisals would change the agency’s rules on providing appraisals for transactions involving existing extensions of credit and on the availability of copies of appraisals for members who request them. The NAFCU-supported proposed changes are part of the association’s “Dirty Dozen” list of rules and regulations ripe for change or elimination. NAFCU has written NCUA multiple times encouraging the changes.The proposed rule would eliminate the requirement for credit unions to retain copies of all appraisals and documentation related to first-lien mortgage loans; this is unnecessary since the member receives the full appraisal report. It would also revise language on when a transaction is not a part of the appraisal requirement; the change would allow foregoing the appraisal if the transaction does not involve new money (except closing costs) or there has been no material change in market conditions or the condition of the property itself.Regarding the board’s 2015 oversight budget for TCCUSF, NCUA updated its information on the costs of the Corporate Resolution Program and the Guaranteed Notes Program, saying in November that the upper and lower ends of the TCCUSF assessment range remain negative – which means it is unlikely credit unions will be charged assessments in the future. At the board’s November meeting, staff said no assessment is likely next year and that any share insurance premium would likely be in the range of 0 to 5 basis points. continue reading » 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Championships Update: Three junior events cancelled

first_img It is with considerable regret that England Golf has made the decision to cancel three junior championships due to ongoing difficulties presented by the COVID-19 outbreak.The following championships are now cancelled:English U16/14 Girls’ Championship- Thorndon Park Golf Club, 28-30 JulyEnglish U16 Boys’ Championship (McGregor Trophy) – Heworth Golf Club, 28-30 JulyEnglish U14 Boys’ Championship (Reid Trophy) – Prestbury Golf Club, 4-6 AugustThe safety and wellbeing of our junior competitors and their accompanying parents/guardians remains of paramount importance.Whilst we are confident the golf element of a championship can be managed successfully, there are additional practical difficulties associated with running junior events.With parents and guardians necessarily joining competitors, staff and volunteers on site within the confines of a smaller club environment, it becomes more difficult to adhere to social distancing regulations.England Golf is most appreciative of the understanding and acceptance shown by the host clubs in making this tough decision and we look forward to working with them again in the future.It should be noted that due to the size and layout of the Woodhall Spa facility at the home of England Golf, the English Men’s and English Women’s Amateur Championships, scheduled to be played 28 July-2 Aug, remain in the diary.England Golf is confident it can celebrate the best of English amateur golf at this joint event.All other England Golf championships remain provisionally scheduled as before and are subject to regular review in accordance with updated government advice and regulations. 22 May 2020 Championships Update: Three junior events cancelled Tags: English U14 girls’, English U16 girls’, McGregor Trophy, Reid Trophylast_img read more
