TRID Is Here

Many changes came into effect for the real estate industry in 2015 with TRID going into effect on October 3rd of that year. Perhaps the biggest visible change was the required usage of new disclosures at most residential real estate closings. There is much information available about the rule and the new forms on the CFPB website. There you will find filled-in samples as well as blank samples of the Closing Disclosure and Loan Estimate forms. These forms replaced the Initial and Final Truth in Lending Disclosure, Good Faith Estimate, the HUD-1 Settlement Statement forms that were previously used in most transactions. The consolidation of the historically used forms was intended to help both buyers and sellers to understand the process, what it entails and what it means, more thoroughly.
