CFPB Integrated Mortgage Disclosures

Days Until the Integrated Mortgage Disclosure Rule Goes into Effect


The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has released its final rule for new integrated mortgage disclosures. The rule integrates forms required under the Truth-in-Lending Act (TILA) and Real Estate Settlement and Procedures Act (RESPA). This page will provide details and information to help ALTA members implement and comply with the rule.

The closing process will significantly change as a Loan Estimate will replace the current Good Faith Estimate and early TIL disclosure, while a Closing Disclosure will replace the HUD-1 and final TIL disclosure.

The CFPB has given an implementation deadline of August 1, 2015.

RESPA-TILA Integration Forums

ALTA and the Mortgage Bankers Association are hosting five RESPA-TILA Integration Forums to help prepare for the Aug. 1, 2015 implementation date of the CFPB's new Loan Estimate and Closing Disclosure. At each Forum, a panel of legal, title, technology and operation experts will review the rule and offer guidance to help prepare you for the implementation deadline.

These one-day sessions will provide up-to-date information on how title and settlement agents, attorneys, lenders and software providers are navigating the new RESPA-TILA requirements.

Join us and network with lenders from across the country.
