Title & Escrow News and Information

If a buyer opts not to purchase an owner’s policy, in most states they would not receive the benefit of a simultaneous issue discount applied to the loan policy premium. Currently, in a typical residential transaction, a lender quotes the discounted rate on a Loan Estimate.

However, any increase in this premium would result in a tolerance violation or increased annual percentage rate. Therefore, the CFPB wrote into the new rules any simultaneous issue discount must be applied to the owner’s policy premium and not the loan policy premium.

Therefore, when the new CFPB rules are implemented, the lender will need to disclose the full lender’s policy premium on the Loan Estimate and the preparer of the Closing Disclosure will charge the full loan premium. The new formula for calculating the owner’s premium with the simultaneous issue discount applied is as follows:

Owner's Premium
+ Simultaneous Issue Rate
- Full Loan Premium
= Owner's Rate

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 CFPB final rule requires the lender to give the borrower three business days to thoroughly review the Closing Disclosure to enable them to compare the charges to the loan estimate and ensure the cost and loan program they are obtaining are as expected. In our previous video, we explained the waiting period begins on the day the Closing Disclosure is sent. It does not start the next business day!
