The CFPB’s TILA/RESPA Integrated Disclosures Rule: Navigating Its Enforcement Predicament
Aiming to simplify closed-end credit transactions and processes, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has recently published the Truth-In-Lending Act (TILA)/Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) integrated disclosures (TRID) rule.
The new regulation, under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, became effective on October 3, 2015 and is expected to drastically to change the pre-closing disclosures creditors, mortgage brokers, and settlement agents must provide to borrowers under RESPA and TILA. With the TRID rule, making closed-end credit transactions will be easier. However, gearing up for implementation and compliance challenges is a must for consumers and creditors as drastic changes could also mean new requirements, expenses and liabilities.
Among other changes to the existing pre-closing procedures, the TRID enables 'integrated disclosures' in lieu of various documents traditionally used under RESPA and TILA for certain qualifying loans. However, implementation and compliance are problematic for creditors. In addition, the lack of a gradual transition to the new, integrated disclosures has many lawmakers and trade organizations questioning whether the CFPB should implement a non-enforcement period to allow creditors a period of adjustment before enforcement.
For the time being, creditors should have implemented changes to avoid the grave civil and regulatory consequences of non-compliance.
In this two-hour, LIVE webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders will help you understand the important changes to The CFPB's TILA/RESPA Integrated Disclosures Rule and speakers will help the audience in Navigating The Enforcement Predicament in 2016. The panel of speakers will also suggest best practices to ensure compliance and enforcement with the new rules.
