Loan Settings

Introduction

This section of a loan lets you control all loan settings that don’t directly affect how the loan is calculated.

Loan Settings are the options on a loan that don't affect how it's calculated—figures that affect calculation are found in Loan Setup. Instead, the settings will determine how loans are grouped and serviced. This article will cover updating the settings as well as give relevant information about each setting.

Settings

Within a loan, navigate to Loan Settings > Settings. You'll see this page, which lists the current settings on the account:

To change settings, click the blue 'Edit' button in the top right corner.

Primary ECOA Code

These Equal Credit Oppportunity Act (ECOA) codes are used when reporting credit. The code describes the how the primary customer is responsible for the loan.

Available Codes
Here's a list of the available codes:
• A – System Managed. The ECOA code will be set to 1 if there is only a primary borrower, 2 if there are primary and secondary borrowers.
• 0 – Not Specified. No ECOA code is specified.
• 1 – Individual/Primary. There is just one, individual borrower.
• 2 – Joint Contract. There is a borrower and a co-borrower.
• 7 – Maker. The subject of the loan is liable for it, but if they default, the co-borrower is liable.
• T – Associate Terminated. The borrower's association with the account is terminated.
• X – Consumer Deceased. The borrower is deceased.
• Z – Delete Borrower. The borrower has been reported inaccurately and should be deleted.

Secondary ECOA Code

Similar to the Primary ECOA code, these describe the secondary borrower's responsibility over the loan. The options are the same as for the primary borrower.

Reporting Type

The loan is reported to the credit bureaus as being this type of loan. The options are Installment, Revolving, Line of Credit, Mortgage, and Open.

Merchant Processor Group

Determines which group of payment processors handle payments from the loan.

Payment Type Default

This determines the default payment type (principal only, fees only, etc.). This field allows you to set a default that is specific to this loan, but you can also leave it as your company default. This available options comprise both LoanPro default types and any custom types that you've created, and a full list is available within Settings > Loan > Payments > Types.

Display ID

Credit Status

A status used in credit bureau reporting to indicate delinquency or other status of the loan.

Expand Credit Statuses
Here's a full list of available credit statuses:

  • 0 – Auto – Allow the system to manage this field. LoanPro will change the status reported to the credit bureaus depending on other information you give throughout the life of the loan. If a credit status is not automatically assigned, you can manually assign it or use rules applied to have the system change it for you. The system will assign a credit status by looking at items in the account and assigning the status as it goes. The last status in the order that an account qualifies for is the one it will ultimately be assigned. Accounts are evaluated as follows:
    • First the days past due (DPD) are evaluated:
      • If DPD <= 29 then set credit status to 11
      • If DPD >= 30 and DPD <= 59 then set credit status to 71
      • If DPD >= 60 and DPD <= 89 then set credit status to 78
      • If DPD >= 90 and DPD <= 119 then set credit status to 80
      • If DPD >= 120 and DPD <= 149 then set credit status to 82
      • If DPD >= 150 and DPD <= 179 then set credit status to 83
      • If DPD >= 180 then set credit status to 84
    • Then there is a check to see if the loan is paid off:
      • If principal balance is <= 0 then set credit status to 13
    • Then check to see if the loan is repossessed
      • If the loan has a valid repo date and principal balance <= 0 then set credit status to 63
      • If the loan has a valid repo date and principal balance > 0 then set credit status to 96
    • Finally we check to see if the loan is charged off
      • If the principal balance = 0 and there was a net charge off balance on the loan that has since been paid so now the net charge off = 0 then set credit status to 64
      • If the principal balance <= 0 and net charge off is > 0 then set credit status to 97
