The Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) and the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) were both created as protective measures that provide disclosures to eliminate abusive practices. The longstanding congressional goal to integrate the two in order to avoid overlap, inconsistencies and discrepancies, came to the fore with the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) which was charged with proposing regulation to combine RESPA and TILA with the hope that a well-informed consumer will not engage in risky financial behavior. The result, TRID, recently put into effect, will have great impact on real estate closings and transactions. This CLE course will explain the new rules, how they evolved, their impact and what it means for your clients. Learn how TRID is impacting the real estate industry!
