TRID Now Rules
On Saturday, October 3, 2015, the TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure (TRID) rule was officially implemented. Today marks the first business day in which all mortgage business will be conducted under this new rule.
This new rule impacts every business in the single-family mortgage market. The rule requires a complete change both systematically and operationally. Currently, consumers receive two different but overlapping federal disclosure forms, which has been confusing and unnecessary for the mortgage process.
Under this rule, two new forms were created. The Loan Estimate form is now required to be given to the consumer three business days after application and the Closing Disclosure form, which must be distributed to the consumer three business days prior to the closing of the loan.
· Reduce paperwork and consumer confusion
· Use a consumer-friendly format and language to clarify mortgage process
· Display pertinent information on front page
· Clearly inform the consumer on cost of taxes and insurance
· Assist consumers in determining if the cost is affordable now and into the future by making information readily available within the disclosures
· Clarify penalties on terms of the mortgage
· Provide more reliable cost estimates
· Allow more time to review closing documents thereby giving consumers the opportunity to raise questions and concerns
For any questions as to how this impacts you and your mortgage needs, please talk to your trusted mortgage professional.
