Understanding TRID Tolerance Cures
Steven Van Beek, Howard & Howard Attorneys PLLC
The CFPB's TILA/RESPA Integrated Disclosure (TRID) requirements continue to cause confusion for mortgage lenders. Specifically, many mortgage lenders have lingering questions regarding the TRID tolerance levels and properly conducting the good faith analysis of fees and charges. This webinar will review mortgage lenders' obligations under the TRID rules to track and monitor tolerance levels. The training will analyze the increased difficulty presented by situations where multiple loan estimates have been issued and a lender needs to determine which fees and charges to use when performing the good faith analysis. Lenders' options and requirements for providing tolerance cures will also be addressed. Attendees will learn TRID tolerance levels, best practices for tracking fees and charges, and the required procedures for curing tolerances on the closing disclosure.

Mortgage Loan Disclosure Timing Issues
Steven Van Beek, Howard & Howard Attorneys PLLC
The constant change to mortgage disclosures has resulted in numerous revisions to lenders' procedures, including the timing of disclosures to applicants and borrowers. This program will review the timing requirements for various mortgage loan disclosures and analyze the required timeframes for providing HELOCs and closed-end consumer mortgage transaction disclosures. Specific attention will be paid to disclosure requirements for the loan estimate, closing disclosure, and other TRID-related disclosures, including the written list of providers. Lenders will learn when a revised loan estimate is required and when they can issue revised loan estimates to reset tolerance levels due to a changed circumstance. Attendees will receive details on the various required mortgage loan disclosures and specific timeframes and will be able to use that information to perform audits and analysis of their disclosure procedures.
