(Jeff Sorg, OnlineEd) – NAR President Chris Polychron, recently cautioned that closings for some home sales could drag after October 3, 2015as the real estate industry transitions to the new closing procedures required by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s integrated disclosure rule. “There likely will be bumps in the closing process while all parties get used to the new requirements,” he said. “We hope that the move away from the HUD–1 is smooth, but even if only 10 percent of transactions experience closing issues, that’s as many as 40,000 transactions a month.”
Don’t wait until August 1st to find our what’s going on with these important changes to the closing process! There’s plenty of material online about the RESPA-TILA Integrated Disclosure rule (“TRID”).
