CFPB Proposes 2-Month Extension of Know Before You Owe Mortgage Rule
Thursday, June 25, 2015 6:40 AM

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau yesterday issued a proposed amendment to the Know Before You Owe mortgage disclosure rule, which proposes to move the rule’s effective date to Oct. 3, 2015.

The rule, also called the TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure rule, requires easier-to-use mortgage disclosure forms that clearly lay out the terms of a mortgage for a homebuyer. The Bureau is issuing the proposal to correct an administrative error that would have delayed the effective date of the rule by at least two weeks, until August 15 at the earliest.

The CFPB is proposing a new effective date of Saturday, Oct. 3. The Bureau believes that moving the effective date may benefit both industry and consumers with a smoother transition to the new rules. The Bureau further believes that scheduling the effective date on a Saturday may facilitate implementation by giving industry time over the weekend to launch new systems configurations and to test systems. A Saturday launch is also consistent with existing industry plans tied to the original effective date of Saturday, Aug. 1. 

The proposal will be open for public comment until July 7. A copy of the proposal is available here.
