Washington, D.C. — The Financial Services Roundtable’s Housing Policy Council (HPC) recommended additional changes to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) “Know Before You Owe TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure” rule, particularly the need for more formal guidance on aspects of the rule. While supporting recent changes to the regulation in its comment letter to the CFPB, HPC noted several additional areas of the regulation that need formal clarification and guidance, such as correcting errors and cures.
“We applaud the Bureau for its continuing efforts to improve the KYBO/TRID requirements and the suggestions it has taken from HPC and other industry stakeholders,” said John Dalton, President of the Housing Policy Council. “The industry is making progress in the implementation of the new regulation, but remaining uncertainties can still slow the process for closing on a home. It will be important for industry and CFPB to maintain a regular dialogue on remaining issues with KYBO/TRID to try to further clarify the regulation to improve the consumer home buying experience.”
HPC also asked the Bureau to provide additional model and sample forms to help clarify areas of the regulation.
