CFPB Readiness

Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
Know before you close. Any residential loan originated on or after October 3, 2015 will be subject to the new rules and forms set forth by the CFPB. The Rule replaces the Good Faith Estimate (GFE) and early TILA form with the new Loan Estimate. It also replaces the HUD-1 Settlement Statement and final TILA form with the new Closing Disclosure. We have created this important reference for employees and customers, with specific information for realtors, lenders, attorneys, escrow agents and consumers, respectively.
