Realtors® Applaud CFPB’s Extended TRID Implementation Deadline

WASHINGTON (July 21, 2015) — The following is a statement by National Association of Realtors® President Chris Polychron in support of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s announcement today that the Truth in Lending Act and Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act Integrated Disclosure, or TRID, implementation date has been moved from August 1 to October 3:

“NAR has worked diligently with the CFPB throughout this process, helping to ensure that the upcoming harmonization of TILA-RESPA disclosures is carried out with as little disruption to the industry as possible. In addition, NAR has worked hard to ensure our members have everything they need to comply with the rules while continuing the business of real estate without interruption.

“August is a busy time for Realtors®, as home buying and selling picks up around the summer season. CFPB’s recognition of the challenge that an August implementation posed for the industry is a big win for Realtors®, for lenders, for consumers and for everyone involved.

“An October 3 implementation will help ensure that our industry has time to prepare for the changes ahead while helping consumers get to closing without delay.

“NAR will continue to keep members updated on the rule and ensure they have the tools to comply with the changes coming their clients’ way. We will also continue communicating any Realtor® concerns about the implementation to the CFPB and look forward to a continued partnership as the TRID rule goes into effect later this year.”
