Reyne Stapelmann: Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Proposes Delay on TRID

On June 17, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Richard Cordray issued the following statement on the Know Before You Owe mortgage disclosure rule:

“The CFPB will be issuing a proposed amendment to delay the effective date of the Know Before You Owe rule until Oct. 1, 2015. We made this decision to correct an administrative error that we just discovered in meeting the requirements under federal law, which would have delayed the effective date of the rule by two weeks. We further believe that the additional time included in the proposed effective date would better accommodate the interests of the many consumers and providers whose families will be busy with the transition to the new school year at that time.”

The National Association of Realtors has been leading the effort to ensure an effective implementation of the TRID regulation.

NAR President Chris Polychron issued the following statement in response:

“The action announced today by the CFPB is a welcome step. NAR has long advocated the need to avoid implementing the new regulation during the peak summer selling season. NAR welcomes the CFPB’s proposed extension to Oct. 1, 2015, as well as the earlier 'sensitivity' they offered to companies making a good-faith effort to comply with the new TRID regulation. We will continue to work with CFPB to minimize any possible market disruptions or uncertainty that could develop following the implementation. Realtors appreciate that the CFPB has demonstrated an understanding of the need for additional time to accommodate the interests of the many consumers and providers.”

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.
