ICBA Summary of the TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure (TRID) Rule:
TRID stands for:
What is the new TRID rule? ? The TRID rule consolidates four existing disclosures required under TILA and RESPA for closed-end credit transactions secured by real property, the appraisal notice required by the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, and the servicing
notice required by RESPA into two forms: a Loan Estimate (LE) that must be delivered or placed in the mail no later than the third business day after receiving the consumer’s application, and a Closing Disclosure (CD) that must be provided to the consumer
at least three business days prior to loan consummation. ? TRID also establishes a new definition of “application” for consumers to obtain an LE ? While this rule includes major changes to mortgage loan disclosures and delivery requirements, due to ICBA advocacy,
no proposed changes requiring creditors to disclose an all-inclusive annual percentage rate (APR) were finalized.
Loans Covered By the Rule ? The TRID rule applies to most closed-end consumer credit transactions secured by real property, but does NOT apply to: o Home Equity Lines of Credit (HELOCs); o Reverse mortgages; or
o Chattel-dwelling loans, such as loans secured by a mobile home or by a dwelling not attached to real property. ? The TRID rule applies to all lenders making mortgage loans, including community banks, unless the lender extended credit to a consumer 25 or fewer
times including mortgage loans, or made five or fewer mortgage loans in the previous calendar year or current calendar year. ? NOTE: Certain types of loans that are currently subject to TILA but not RESPA are subject to the TRID rule’s integrated disclosure
requirements, including: o Construction-only loans; and o Loans secured by vacant land or by 25 or more acres.
