ALTA Members Can Access Webinars on CFPB’s Proposed Regulations and Mortgage Disclosures
|August 14, 2012|
Since the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau released its 1,099-page proposed rule to go with a new Loan Estimate and Closing Disclosure that will replace the current TIL, GFE and HUD-1 disclosures, ALTA has held several webinars to help inform the industry about the proposal and prepare for the changes.
Nearly 2,000 industry professionals have participated on the presentations to learn how the proposed forms and regulations could impact business and work flow.
Joining ALTA CEO Michelle Korsmo and ALTA lobbyists have been ALTA RESPA Task Force members Don Wold (chair) of Old Republic National Title Insurance Co., Leslie Wyatt of SoftPro and Ruth Dillingham of First American Title Insurance Co., as well as ALTA members Francine D’Elia Wirsching of Community First Abstract and Shari Schneider of Title Resource Group.
The first webinar on July 12 provided an overview of the proposed regulations. The second webinar on July 25 addressed the proposed three-page Loan Estimate, which will replace the early TIL and GFE, and the five-page Closing Disclosure, which will replace the HUD-1 and final TIL. The third webinar on Oct. 8 analyzed the proposed three day rule and how it could delay closings and impact business.
