On October 3rd, 2015 we experienced a big change in home loan financing, and now the government agency that started the process back in 2010 may reconsider the new regulation.  The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has quietly informed the financial services industry that it has acknowledged complaints and concerns relating to the TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure (TRID) rule, also referred to as the "Know Before You Owe" rule, and plans to seek their input on making updates to this federal policy.
 
CFPB Director Richard Cordray admitted that this rule "poses many operational challenges" and insisted that the agency was cognizant of how lenders, mortgage professionals and other housing-related businesses were being impacted by the rule.  The National Association of Mortgage Professionals, The American Bankers Association, The Mortgage Bankers Association and The American Land Title Association all welcome the comments by CFPB Director Richard Cordray.

Cordray also stated that the CFPB would arrange either one or two meetings in late May or early June to further discuss updating the rule. However, he offered no specifics on locations or what would be open for discussion.

We will keep you posted on the changes as they become available.
