Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

ALTA Hosts Conference Call With More than 300 Members to Discuss CFPB Proposed Rule and Mortgage Disclosures

July 17, 2012

More than 300 ALTA members participated in an exclusive ALTA-member benefit conference call on July 12 as ALTA CEO Michelle Korsmo, members of ALTA’s RESAP Task Force and ALTA lobbyists provided information about the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) Proposed Rule to integrate mortgage disclosures required under the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) and Real Estate Settlement and Procedures Act (RESPA).

A proposed Loan Estimate will replace the Good Faith Estimate (GFE) and the preliminary Truth in Lending form, while a proposed Closing Disclosure will replace the HUD-1 Settlement Statement and the final revised Truth in Lending disclosure.

During the hour-long call, members learned how some of the proposed changes could impact business, such as who will provide the Closing Disclosure to consumers. Participants were also able to ask questions and offer thoughts and concerns about the proposed regulations and forms.
