Overview

ALTA has advocated for its members the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's (CFPB) final regulation for Truth-in-Lending Act (TILA) and Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) Integrated Disclosures (TRID). TRID disclosures are required to be used on most residential mortgage transactions after October 3, 2015. A Loan Estimate will replace the current Good Faith Estimate (GFE) and early TIL disclosure, while a Closing Disclosure will replace the HUD-1 and final TIL disclosure.

Impact to the Industry

ALTA members will need to comply with these new disclosure requirements, which will require the title and settlement industry to go through one of the largest and most costly regulatory changes in its history.

Compliance with this regulation will require more than simply updating our systems for two new disclosure forms – it requires a paradigm shift in the way real estate settlements occur in the United States.
