Title & Escrow News and Information
In addition to the delivery period we discussed in our previous video, lenders must ensure the borrower receives the Closing Disclosure no later than three business days before consummation. This is referred to as a waiting period.

Three Business-Day Waiting Period

The new rule only requires the lender to disclose the cost of the owner’s title policy on the Loan Estimate if the borrower will be paying for the policy. Unfortunately, if the borrower is paying for it, the charge must be labeled as optional on both the loan estimate and closing disclosure. This is a concern because telling a consumer owners title insurance […]
On June 24, 2015, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) issued a proposed amendment to the Know Before You Owe mortgage disclosure rule, which proposes to move the rule’s effective date to October 3, 2015.
“The CFPB is proposing a new effective date of Saturday, October 3. The Bureau believes that moving the effective date may benefit both industry and consumers with a smoother transition to the new rules,”
the Bureau said in the statement.
