We have modified the language and format of our standard California Request for Fair Lending Information, Cx18014, to more closely mirror the requirements of Cal. Code Regs. tit. 21, § 7114.1. The changes include the removal of the Ethnicity section, since it is not required by the statute, an additional option of “Other” to the Race/National Origin section, and various labeling changes. If the checkbox for “I do not wish to furnish this information” is checked, the entire section for that borrower will be cleared, regardless of any other information passed. Note that the fields from the federal Demographic Addendum form will be used to populate the data on this CA form.
These document changes will take effect on January 30, 2019. If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please contact Client Support at 1.800.497.3584.
