August 1st Looming – Real Estate Closings may grind to a halt!

Lawmakers Seek to Give Lenders More Time for New Mortgage Disclosures

MAY 4, 2015 3:57pm ET

WASHINGTON — Two House Financial Services Committee members introduced a bipartisan bill late last week that is designed to give lenders breathing room when new disclosure rules go into effect on Aug. 1.

The bill would shield lenders from regulatory enforcement actions and private lawsuits through yearend if they make a good faith effort to comply with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s new rule.

“It provides a safe harbor for those who are trying to follow in good faith,” said Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif., one of the co-authors of the bill. “But this is a shakedown cruise. The ship has got to launch on Aug. 1.If it there is a thing that goes wrong there, you got to fix it.”

The bill, which is co-authored with Rep. Steve Pearce, R-N.M., was introduced late Friday. It is directed at the CFPB’s rule combining the mortgage disclosures of the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act and the Truth-in-Lending Act.

Here’s the Bottom Line:
Urge your Senators and Congressmen to support this gradual implementation of the CFPB’s new RESPA disclosure rules or Real Estate Closings will happen much slower August 1st.
