DocMagic Implements MISMO Version 3.3 in Support of the TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure Rule

Posted by DocMagic on 02/11/2015

Press Release:
Adherence to MISMO’s latest dataset helps prepare DocMagic for the CFPB’s Integrated Disclosure deadline

TORRANCE, Calif., Feb. 11, 2015 – DocMagic, Inc., the mortgage industry’s leader in compliant loan document preparation and driver of complete eMortgage adoption, announced that its entire solution set now adheres to version 3.3 of the Mortgage Industry Standards Maintenance Organization (MISMO) Reference Model.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) Integrated Disclosure Rule combines the mortgage disclosures required under the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) and the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA). It requires lenders to use the new integrated disclosures beginning on Aug. 1, 2015. Successful compliance with this rule depends on use of the latest version of the data standard.

The Real Impact of Integrated Disclosures

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 TILA-RESPA Combined Disclosure connection

Posted by DocMagic on 08/20/2014

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

As we all know (and can’t get away from by now), the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has issued a rule that they state will simplify and improve disclosure forms for mortgage transactions. For applications received on or after August 1, 2015, the Loan Estimate must be provided to the consumer three business days after the application, and the Closing Disclosure must be provided to the consumer three days before closing.

The new Combined Disclosure Regulation is going to force lenders to connect to title agents at the time of application and prior to closing to ensure compliance. As some of the recent posts on Closing Call have discussed, there are tolerances and limits on the increases to closing costs. Here’s the official word on closing-cost increases, extracted straight from the CFPB’s Final rule on simplified and improved mortgage disclosures:

Automating the Loan Origination Process | DocMagic eDisclosure Webinar

Posted by DocMagic on 08/27/2012

RESPA and TILA regulations require that initial disclosures be delivered or placed in the mail no later than three business days after the lender receives the borrower's written application. Satisfying this requirement can be a labor-intensive endeavor requiring paper, toner, postage fees and late night runs to the post office. Moreover, preparation delivery, signatures and return can take time and delay the origination process.

DocMagic has the technology to safely deliver compliant disclosure into the hands of your borrowers in seconds.

In this webinar learn how the MDIA impacts the loan origination process and how electronic delivery and acknowledgment provides simple resolution.
