The Real Impact of Integrated Disclosures

By Tim Anderson,
Director of eServices,
DocMagic, Inc.

What can the industry expect when the CFPB’s final rule and new forms take effect next year?

When federal regulators change the rules governing the requirements for originating a mortgage loan, it can mean pain for both the industry and the consumers it serves. But this time, the move to an integrated disclosure may surprise you and translate into an unexpected side benefit to all parties—that benefit is the eMortgage.

For almost a decade and a half, proponents of all-electronic lending have urged lenders to take the paper out of the process in favor of fully electronic mortgage origination. Despite its significant benefits, eMortgage adoption gave way to the critical mass of lenders unwilling to abandon their legacy systems and paper-intensive processes.

Meanwhile, behind the scenes, lenders’ partners have been implementing systems that allow them to complete more of their loan origination workflow without stopping to paper out. The reality is that a fair amount of lenders have, in fact, been operating fundamentally without paper up until the loan closing, when they print all of the forms for their borrowers’ signatures.

We all know regulation drives change, and the new integrated disclosures lenders will begin using next year provide all the incentive needed to let go of the paper once and for all. Here’s why.

The Dotted Line: I Have Lived To See The Day

By Tim Anderson

On Wednesday, April 8 I received an official invitation to attend the CFPB hosted panel discussion on looking at better ways to improve the closing process at CFPB’s HQ office in DC. As I was sitting listening to all the government agencies sign-on in support of this initiative, I was having a sort of surreal out of body experience. It was June 28, 2002 when FannieMae published bulletin 02-08 announcing they would now begin purchasing this thing called SMART Doc eNotes. It was then that I became a bonifide convert and believer that this was going to revolutionize the way we do business and went in search of a doc company to develop and offer the solution.

What I didn’t know at that time was just how long this was going to take. During the meeting, Ann Epstein, Director of Change Management at Freddie Mac jokingly quipped, “eMortgage adoption has only been three to five years away for some time now” which was an insider joke since that line has been used and quoted so many times over the years. The real joke being we just didn’t know which three- to five-year period this actually was going to become a reality. Well, after twelve years of talking and promoting this, last Wednesday was the culmination of what I thought at times was a singular effort to evangelize and educate people on a better way to do business. I oftentimes felt like Don Quixote casting stones at windmills. As I expressed my joy to some of the other “old timers” who were in the room and drank the cool-aid early, “I’m just happy to be around to see it finally happen!”
