Info on Notice of Right to Cancel for New HELOC

Answered by: 

Question: 
The previous Commentary to Reg Z at 1026.5b contained the following statement regarding a matured HELOC: "...A new plan results; however, if the plan is renewed (with or without changes to the terms) after the scheduled expiration. The new plan is subject to all open-end credit rules, including sections 226.5b, 226.6 and 226.15." I have not found any comparable interpretations by the CFPB since the CFPB took over responsibility for Regulation Z. I'm looking for any information that will support the need, or lack thereof, to require a Notice of Right to Cancel when a new HELOC note is executed after the existing HELOC has matured.
Answer: 

There has been no change:

Official Interpretation

Section 1026.40—Requirements for Home-Equity Plans

2. Changes to home equity plans entered into on or after November 7, 1989. Section 1026.9(c) applies if, by written agreement under §1026.40(f)(3)(iii), a creditor changes the terms of a home equity plan—entered into on or after November 7, 1989—at or before its scheduled expiration, for example, by renewing a plan on different terms. A new plan results, however, if the plan is renewed (with or without changes to the terms) after the scheduled expiration. The new plan is subject to all open-end credit rules, including 1026.6, 1026.15, and 1026.40.
