CFPB assessment of TRID disclosure rule
The CFPB has released a report to Congress on its formal five-year assessment of its Integrated Mortgage Disclosures Under the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (Regulation X) and the Truth in Lending Act (Regulation Z) Rule (the "TRID Rule"), which took effect October 3, 2015. In its assessment, the Bureau used both its own research and external sources to evaluate the effectiveness of the Rule in meeting (1) the purposes and objectives of the Bureau and (2) the specific goals of the Rule as stated by the Bureau prior to the Rule’s effective date.
Some highlights from Director Kraninger's message covering the report:
- In laboratory testing, borrower understanding of mortgage transactions has improved due to their receipt of the required disclosures.
- The TRID Rule appears to have created sizeable implementation costs for lenders and closing companies. Based on the industry surveys, a typical cost for a lender to implement the TRID Rule was $146 per mortgage originated in 2015, or roughly 2.0 percent of the average cost of originating a mortgage. Similarly, a typical cost for a closing company to implement the TRID Rule was $39 per closing in 2015, or about ten percent of the average cost of closing.
- The TRID Rule’s effects on ongoing costs is less clear. Industry data indicate that mortgage lending costs have steadily increased over the past decade. However, the Bureau does not have any data that demonstrates how much, if any, of these increased costs are attributable to the TRID Rule.
- The TRID Rule appears to have decreased mortgage originations and increased closing times, but these measures returned to pre-TRID Rule levels in a relatively short period of time.
