The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has released its final rule on Integrated Mortgage Disclosures, which combines, and aims to simplify, the disclosures required under the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) and the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA). The final rule, which becomes effective August 1, 2015, requires lenders to provide borrowers with two new disclosure forms (the Loan Estimate and the Closing Disclosure) in connection with most closed-end consumer credit transactions secured by real property.
