Recently the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (“CFPB”) issued its Integrated Mortgage Disclosure Rule (the “Rule”). The Rule will become effective 8/1/2015 and essentially replace the HUD-1 Settlement Statement with a Closing Disclosure, and, replace the Good Faith Estimate with a Loan Estimate. The idea is to consolidate and simplify the information. One significant change is lenders will be required to provide the Loan Estimate to borrowers within 3 days after the consumer applies for a mortgage loan. And, lenders will be required to provide the Closing Disclosure so that its received at least 3 days before the closing.
Borrowers, lenders and title agents should begin to familiarize themselves now with the changes to ensure compliance in the future.
