CFPB-TerminologyStarting October 3, 2015, the new CFPB Integrated Mortgage Disclosures under the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (Regulation X) and the Truth-In-Lending Act (Regulation Z) will be used for residential real estate transactions. Any residential loan originated after October 3, 2015 will be subject to the new rules and forms set forth by the CFPB. The Rule replaces the Good Faith Estimate (GFE) and early TILA form with the new Loan Estimate. It also replaces the HUD-1 Settlement Statement and final TILA form with the new Closing Disclosure.
