1161.72 [Repealed Effective 1/1/2018] Expenses.

All expenses of a savings bank shall be paid out of its gross earnings only, and so much of these earnings as is necessary shall be set aside each year for this purpose. If the savings bank acquires real estate as a result of default in a mortgage, whether by deed or by foreclosure, amounts paid out by it in court costs and taxes at the time the real estate is acquired may be charged to a reserve fund, and reconditioning costs after the real estate is acquired may be charged either to a reserve fund or to current operating expense, as determined by the board of directors. When any parcel of the real estate is sold by the savings bank, the funds received shall be applied to the payment of sales expense, to the restoration of losses previously charged to the reserve or undivided profit funds, to the reduction of the book value of the real estate, or to current income, as determined by the board. The savings bank may levy a reasonable charge, upon any corporation or person applying for a mortgage loan for which the real estate is given as security, for any services by it in connection with the loan or for extending the period of maturity of the loan or otherwise readjusting or refinancing it and for any other action by the savings bank permitted or required by law with respect to the loans. All charges, except reasonable attorney's fees and charges for legal services and reasonable appraisal fees, shall be made by the savings bank directly and accounted for on its books. A reasonable appraisal fee may be charged by the savings bank, and shall be paid by the borrower to the savings bank prior to or subsequent to the granting of a loan.

Upon the closing of the loan, the savings bank, directly or through its attorney, shall furnish the borrower a loan settlement statement showing in detail all charges and fees the borrower has paid or obligated himself to pay either to the savings bank or to its attorney in connection with the loan, and a copy of the loan settlement statement shall be retained in the records of the savings bank.

Repealed by 132nd General Assembly File No. TBD, HB 49, §130.23, eff. 1/1/2018.
