CFPB Information

On November 20, 2013, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) published
its final rule concerning the creation of Integrated Mortgage Disclosures. This
combines the disclosures consumers receive under the Truth-in-Lending Act (TILA),
and the Real Estate Settlement procedures Act (RESPA).
The final rule includes new forms that will be used on virtually every transaction
involving a mortgage loan originated and closed after August 1st , 2015. The new
rules are 1,888 pages long and we are thoroughly reviewing these to discover the
effects they will have on our work as settlement agents and title insurers.
A copy of the entire rule can be found by clicking here.

Ticor Title is working closely with our corporate entities and technology teams to ensure our escrow production systems comply with the new rules; generate the Closing Disclosure and send/receive machine readable data to and from loan originators. We are committed to cover all aspects of the new requirements in the coming months.


In the meantime please visit the CFPB website by clicking here, to get familiar with the new forms. These new forms will replace the existing TILA Disclosure, Good Faith Estimate (GFE) and HUD-1 Settlement Statement on nearly every residential sale or refinance after August 1st , 2015.
For further information on the new rules, forms and the impact they'll have on all settlement agents, please visit the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's website by clicking here for detailed information.
