OCC proposed a rule on other real estate owned (OREO) activities for national banks and federal savings associations. OREO refers to real estate acquired in satisfaction of debts previously contracted and real estate no longer used or planned to be used to conduct banking activities. Comment period expires on June 24, 2019.

The proposed rule would clarify and streamline the OCC regulation on other real estate owned (OREO) for national banks and update the regulatory framework for OREO activities at federal savings associations. OCC is also proposing to remove outdated capital rules for national banks and federal savings associations, which include provisions related to OREO, and to make conforming edits to other rules that reference those capital rules. In particular, OCC is proposing to remove Appendices A and B to 12 CFR part 3 (risk-based capital guidelines for national banks) and 12 CFR part 167 (capital requirements for federal savings associations) and make conforming technical edits to other parts that reference those provisions. The last significant revision of OCC to the national bank OREO rules occurred over twenty years ago. The proposed rule would apply to OREO activities at all national banks and federal savings associations.
