Countdown to TRID–The Final Implementation Checklist

Posted by DocMagic on 09/08/2015

The one-month countdown until the TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure (TRID) rule is implemented is in full effect. This checklist of the critical items you will need to will not only ensure compliance, but more importantly deliver the electronic evidence when the Consumer Financial Protection  Bureau (CFPB) comes knocking on your door asking you to prove what you said you did to prevent paying fines that could run up to $1 million dollars a day per infraction!

It’s déjà vu’ all over again. I remember in 2010 when the last major RESPA overhaul occurred and the response by everyone, (Lender, LOS providers, DocPrep companies, Title system vendors) was to build a GFE/TIL calculator; however, no one stood behind them and rep and warranted their accuracy.

The Real Impact of Integrated Disclosures

Posted by DocMagic on 10/27/2014

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.
