We first review the origins of mortgage redlining and discuss the concept of reverse redlining and new theories of redlining.  We then look at a wide range of topics including: the application of redlining enforcement to non-banks; the use of the Equal Credit Opportunity Act and Fair Housing Act to challenge redlining; activity at state level targeting redlining; the types of evidence regulators will look for when examining for redlining or bringing an enforcement action; potential penalties for redlining violations; what steps may be required for remediation of redlining; and how a bank or non-bank can build a compliance program to avoid redlining.

Alan Kaplinsky, Ballard Spahr Senior Counsel in the firm’s Consumer Financial Services Group, hosts the conversation joined by Richard Andreano, a partner in the Group and Leader of the firm’s Mortgage Banking Group.
