When Is The CFPB Eliminating TRID
CFPB Eliminating TRID is not finalized. However, the independent powerful self-regulated Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has been serious about either modifying and/or eliminating TRID altogether. The CFPB may make minor and/or major changes to TRID. The possibility of CFPB Eliminating TRID completely is also a good possibility.
Michael Gracz of Gustan Cho Associates, an industry mortgage regulatory expert said the following:
And next up on its list to review is the TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure rule or TRID, and it looks like eliminating the rule entirely is not off the table. The bureau plans to look at TRID’s effectiveness in meeting the purposes and objectives of Title X of the Dodd-Frank Act, the specific goals of the rule and other relevant factors. And the CFPB is opening up its assessment for public comments. It is looking for recommendations to improve the assessment plan and recommendations for modifying, expanding or eliminating the TRID rule, among other questions. The TRID Rule implemented the Dodd-Frank Act’s directive to combine certain mortgage disclosures that consumers receive under TILA and RESPA and requires that all creditors use standardized forms for most transactions. Creditors are also required to provide the Loan Estimate and the Closing Disclosure forms to borrowers within three business days.
The launch of TRID caused many problems and concerns in both the mortgage and real estate industries.
Negatives Of TRID
Many housing market experts think it was hurting versus helping borrowers.
- The paperwork and unnecessary 3 day waiting period caused issues with homebuyers, sellers, and real estate professionals
- TRID was not popular by lenders, realtors, homebuilders, and title companies
- TRID went into full effect on October 3rd, 2015
- The concerns of how long it will delay loans to close became a reality
- This holds true for homebuyers and sellers who were in a limited time crunch
- The housing industry became used to TRID and now there is little or no problems with the mandatory 3-day waiting period requirement
- There are instances where a borrowers get clear to close and still cannot close right away and wait out the three day waiting period
The CFPB is currently reviewing on which changes, if any, or eliminating the three-year-old rule.
Impact Of CFPB During Trump Administration
President Donald Trump is a firm believer in less government regulation. Since Donald Trump became and got sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, the Trump Administration has been working diligently in deregulating the CFPB and the banking/credit/financial industry. Donald Trump and the Trump Administration firmly believe that less government regulation is key to economic success. Today, due to TRID, if a borrower is in an emergency and needs to close right away, they need to wait three days after the clear to close and final CD before they are able to do so. Regulators meant well when creating TRID but ended up backfiring and becoming more of a negative rather than a consumer protection benefit.
