APLD Policy on Cancelled Loan Applications
Once a loan application has been taken it must be entered into the APLD whatever the ultimate disposition of that application may be. This is particularly important regarding loan applications that are subsequently cancelled by the applicant. Cancellation of an application does not eliminate the requirement for entry into the APLD. All applicable loans in the APLD program area that appear in the loan log must also be entered in the APLD. Loan log and APLD data must be consistent.

What is predatory lending?
Unfair, deceptive or negligent lending practices, often referred to as “predatory lending,” have caused many families to lose their homes. When faced with a mortgage a borrower is unable to pay, the result is often foreclosure of the borrower’s home. This situation affects not only the owner of the foreclosed property, but the entire community as well. Neighborhoods fall into disrepair and home values decrease as properties are abandoned.
