58-21A-4. Prohibited practices and provisions regarding home loans.

A.     No creditor shall finance, directly or indirectly, credit life, credit disability, credit unemployment or credit property insurance, or any other life or health insurance, or any payments directly or indirectly for any debt cancellation or suspension agreement or contract, provided that nothing in this subsection prohibits the payment or receipt of insurance premiums or debt cancellation or suspension fees calculated on the unpaid balance of a home loan and paid on a monthly basis or prohibits bona fide credit property insurance required by the federal housing administration or the United States department of agriculture to be paid in a single premium to the respective federal agency. As used in this subsection, "credit property insurance" means property insurance written in connection with credit transactions under which the creditor is the primary beneficiary.   

B.     No creditor shall knowingly and intentionally engage in the unfair act or practice of flipping a home loan. As used in this subsection, "flipping a home loan" means the making of a home loan to a borrower that refinances an existing home loan when the new loan does not have reasonable, tangible net benefit to the borrower considering all of the circumstances, including the terms of both the new and refinanced loans, the cost of the new loan and the borrower's circumstances.
