Everyone in the real estate industry is talking about the new closing regulations from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. One of the leading concerns is TILA-RESPA compliance. Real estate practices will have a greater compliance burden under the new regulations, but you can use TILA-RESPA software from Easysoft Legal Software to keep your practice from accidentally violating the rules.
TILA-RESPA Compliance Basics
The best way to find out how to remain compliant with closing rules is to visit the official CFPB compliance page. There are a host of resources there to help you educate yourself about the upcoming changes. Start planning now how your practice is going to change to meet new guidelines such as the much earlier paperwork deadlines.
Of course compliance is more complicated than simply reading some rules. This could affect every aspect of your closing procedures. You have been using the HUD form for years or even decades, and now you have to get used to a completely new document. The Loan Estimate and Closing Disclosure forms aren’t simply the HUD with some boxes moved around. The CFPB has implemented complex and fundamental changes to the way information has to be recorded. How can you be sure you are doing things correctly?
