CFPB Mortgage Disclosure Changes
Implementing the TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure Rule
Effective October 3, 2015, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has new closing rules that substantially amend components of the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) and the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA).
What It Means For You
START NOW – familiarity with the new forms and development of a solid procedure for every real estate closing will be essential to a smooth and effective transition to the new closing process. While the 3-day requirement for the initial Loan Estimate is similar to the GFE, the new 3-day requirement for the Closing Disclosure will require Lenders to coordinate closely and work effectively with Settlement Agents to ensure deadlines are met. Closing procedures should be reviewed to ensure the timely exchange of information and timely completion of the Closing Disclosure Form.
Closing agents, title insurers and other third-party service providers should have written policies and “best practices” in place. Develop a list of service providers that have “best practices” and conduct the required due diligence to ensure those service providers are compliant. Furthermore, develop a process for continued monitoring to ensure service providers remain up to your standards.
How We Can Help
Batson Nolan has implemented a complete closing procedures “best practices” in accordance with American Land Title Association (ALTA) standards to help ensure that Lenders meet the strict requirements of the CFPB. We are available to meet with your staff and provide a detailed review of the new closing disclosure forms, as well as to develop effective closing procedures that work for you.
