CFPB Announces Electronic Filings Under Interstate Land Sales Full Disclosure Act

May 5, 2016

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) announced it is amending the regulations implementing the Interstate Land Sales Full Disclosure Act (ILSA) to allow electronic filings.

The Interstate Land Sales Full Disclosure Act requires certain land developers to register their subdivisions and provide disclosures about the lots being offered to protect consumers from deception or abuse. Regulatory authority over ILSA was transferred to the CFPB from the Department of Housing and Urban Development as part of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

The final rule issued by the CFPB amends Regulations J and L to permit the electronic submission of filings under ILSA. It also makes a number of non-substantive corrections and removes certain procedural filing requirements.

In addition to issuing the new rule, the bureau launched a new webpage dedicated to ILSA. The webpage contains instructions for electronic filing once the rule becomes effective and new simplified instructions for making electronic payments for ILSA registration fees.

The changes announced will be effective 30 days after publication in the Federal Register.
