Residential mortgage originators struggling to meet the August 1, 2015 implementation date for the new Truth-in-Lending RESPA Integrated Disclosure Rule received a reprieve yesterday.

CFPB Director Richard Cordray issued the following statement on the Know Before You Owe mortgage disclosure rule:

The CFPB will be issuing a proposed amendment to delay the effective date of the Know Before You Owe rule until October 1, 2015. We made this decision to correct an administrative error that we just discovered in meeting the requirements under federal law, which would have delayed the effective date of the rule by two weeks. We further believe that the additional time included in the proposed effective date would better accommodate the interests of the many consumers and providers whose families will be busy with the transition to the new school year at that time.

The public will have an opportunity to comment on this proposal and a final decision is expected shortly thereafter.


On June 24 the CFPB published its proposed rule for extending the effective date for implementation of the Know Before You Owe Rule to October 3, 2015.  The public has until July 7 to submit comments.
