TIL Disclosure Tolerance For Errors?

Answered by: 

Question: 
On the TruthInLending Disclosure that is signed at closing on a mortgage, is there a tolerance amount that is acceptable in case of any computing errors? If any errors are found, should a new TIL be signed?
Answer: 

This is such an important issue a cursory reply would be insufficient, and a sufficient answer could depend on many factors and be lengthy. Instead I would refer you to some handy resources from the ABA Compliance Magazine. (You can get reprints if you do not have them handy and the price is down by 50% I believe.) These are starting points.
