Illinois Attorney: Continuing Legal Education

TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosures
(Online On-Demand Presentation)

This course takes an in-depth look at the new TILA-RESPA integrated mortgage disclosures. Effective October 3, 2015, the Loan Estimate and the Closing Disclosure will replace the Good Faith Estimate, HUD-1 Settlement Statement and Truth-in-Lending disclosure for most residential mortgage transactions . These changes will have a direct and meaningful impact on the real estate and lending industry and the attorneys who support both buyers and sellers of residential real estate.  Peter Citera, a long-time mortgage industry veteran and Director of Mortgage Education for Real Estate Institute, highlights the new requirements and implementation challenges that have many lenders calling this one of the biggest changes in the mortgage industry since the 1960s.

Topics include:

  • The Loan Estimate: what it looks like, what information is captured and how it differs from the Good Faith Estimate and early Truth-in-Lending disclosure
  • What data points trigger the need for disclosures and who is responsible for their accuracy
  • Changes to the limitations (called “tolerances”) on increases in certain fees and charges
  • A full examination of the Closing Disclosure with a focus on strict new timing requirements that may delay your closings
  • The changing role of the settlement agent brought about by the Closing Disclosure
