Rule No. 69B-186.008
Rule Title Escrow Disbursements
Date April 20, 2015
Time 2:00 PM
Place Room 116 Larson Building, 200 East Gaines Street, Tallahassee, Florida
Type Workshop
Purpose and Effect On August 1, 2015, in compliance with the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) will implement a new rule that integrates mortgage disclosures required by the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) and the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act of 1974 (RESPA). The new “TILA-RESPA” rule includes a new “Closing Disclosure” form that replaces the currently used HUD-1 Settlement Statement.  Like the currently used HUD-1, the new Closing Disclosure form, with few exceptions, is required for use in consumer mortgage transactions.  National industry groups and state regulators have expressed concern that the new Settlement Disclosure form provides inadequate and potentially misleading information regarding the cost of title insurance.
