TRID Comment Period Is Open: Ends Oct. 18

CFPB Releases Proposed Changes to TRID

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau today released amendments to the TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosures (TRID) rule.

ALTA is reviewing the 293 pages of the proposal and will share how the amendments affect the membership. The CFPB had said the proposed changes would correct technical problems, add clarity and  incorporate informal guidance provided by the bureau in webinars into the official staff commentary.

The CFPB also said it does not intend to revisit major policy decisions in this rulemaking. The proposed changes do not correct the inaccurate disclosure of title insurance premiums. You can read ALTA’s statement here.

ALTA has encouraged the bureau to show actual figures for title insurance costs to the consumer on the Closing Disclosure, to prevent lenders from shifting liability for disclosure mistakes and to use the rulemaking period to provide more formal guidance about how to comply with the rule.

The CFPB will accept comments to the proposed amendments until Oct. 18, 2016. Please share your thoughts on the proposed changes with ALTA at TRID@alta.org. ALTA encourages its members to submit their official comments to the CFPB by utilizing the Title Action Network (TAN) email system.
