Webinar: Dealing with Joint Signers in Consumer & Real Estate Lending
Wednesday, December 12, 2018, 03:00pm - 04:30pm

Whenever a loan requires a joint signer, or a joint signer is offered, federal regulations affect the process. Joint signers have rights under the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (Regulation B) and the Truth in Lending Act (Regulation Z). This webinar will address joint signers’ rights and the financial institution’s obligation to protect those rights. Errors in this portion of the fair lending environment can negatively impact your institution in many ways. (Note: This program will not cover the legal requirements or other issues specific to state law.)


  • Definitions that affect lending situations with joint signers
  • Joint signers’ rights and responsibilities
  • Specific notification requirements
  • Rights under rescission rules
  • General rules regarding collection
    • Detailed manual covering all appropriate regulatory requirements
    • Employee training log
    • Quiz you can administer to measure staff learning and a separate answer key


This informative session is designed for all lenders, staff, and management at all levels. It will also benefit those responsible for fair lending audit or management.
