CUNA’s final rule analysis of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) changes to the Truth in Lending Act-Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act integrated disclosures (TRID) rule is now available. The bureau published the final rule in the Federal Register last week, making it effective October 10, with a mandatory compliance date of Oct.ober 1, 2018.
TRID took effect Oct. 3, 2015, combining separate mortgage disclosures required under the Truth in Lending Act and Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act.
- Expansion of the partial exemption for certain down payment and homeowner assistance programs;
- Clarification on the treatment of cooperatives;
- Clarifications on construction loans;
- Treatment of escrow accounts (cancellations and disclosures); and
- Information sharing clarifications.
The rule applies to all credit unions that originate covered transactions under TRID.
For purposes of TRID, a covered transaction is defined as any closed-end consumer credit transaction secured by real property, except:
- A home equity line of credit;
- A mortgage secured by an interest in a timeshare plan;
- A reverse mortgage;
- A temporary or bridge loan with a term of 12 months or less;
- A construction loan with a term of 12 months or less; and
- A mortgage secured by a mobile home or dwelling that is not attached to real property.
