    US Agencies Consult on Capital Treatment of Land Development Loans

    July 23, 2019

    US Agencies (FDIC, FED, and OCC) issued a proposed rule on the treatment of loans that finance the development of land for purposes of the one- to four-family residential properties exclusion in the definition of high volatility commercial real estate (HVCRE) exposure in the regulatory capital rule. The proposal would clarify that loans that solely finance the development of land for residential properties would meet the revised definition of HVCRE, unless the loan qualifies for another exemption. The proposal applies to all banking organizations subject to the capital rules of the US Agencies. The comment period for the consultation ends on August 22, 2019.

    This proposal expands on the notice of proposed rulemaking issued on September 28, 2018, which proposed to revise the definition of HVCRE exposure in the regulatory capital rule to conform to the statutory definition of ‘‘high volatility commercial real estate acquisition, development, or construction (HVCRE ADC) loan,’’ in accordance with section 214 of the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection (EGRRCP) Act. The one- to four-family residential properties exclusion would not include credit facilities that solely finance land development activities, such as the laying of sewers, water pipes, and similar improvements to land. A facility that solely finances land development would be categorized as an HVCRE exposure, unless the exposure meets another exclusion from the revised HVCRE exposure definition.

    Allowing banking organizations to apply a consistent definition of one- to four-family residential property and land development in this manner would simplify reporting requirements, reduce burden, and promote uniform application of the capital rule. The proposed rule requires changes to the Call Reports (FFIEC 031, FFIEC 041, and FFIEC 051), the Risk-Based Capital Reporting for Institutions Subject to the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework (FFIEC 101), and the Consolidated Financial Statements for Holding Companies (FR Y-9C), which will be addressed in separate Federal Register notices.
