The New TRID - TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau instituted new rules regarding disclosures under the Truth In Lending Act and the Real Estate Settlement Procedure Act that will affect all mortgage applications and real estate settlements. These changes were to take place on August 1, 2015, but were delayed until October 3, 2015 to allow for the industry to be better prepared.
Disclosures that consumer receive in connection with applying for and closing on a mortgage including the Good Faith Estimate, the Truth-In-Lending Statement and the HUD-1 Settlement Statement were merged into the Loan Estimate and Closing Disclosure forms. This means the Loan Estimate must be delivered to the prospective buyer no later than 3 business days after receiving the application. Secondly, the Closing Disclosure must be provided to the buyer a full 3 days prior to the closing, and if there are changes during that 72 hour period, the 3 days may have to start over again and closings may be delayed.
