CFPB to institute TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure Rule on October 3, 2015

The Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) was enacted by Congress in 1974 in order to promote "more effective advance disclosure to home buyers and sellers of settlement costs." 12 U.S.C. § 2601(b)(1). In particular, RESPA requires the issuance of forms to the borrower that "conspicuously and clearly itemize all charges imposed upon the borrower and all charges imposed upon the seller in connection with the settlement." 12 U.S.C. § 2603(a). The related Truth-in-Lending Act (TILA) of 1968 requires that, "in the case of any consumer credit transaction," the lender "shall clearly and conspicuously disclose" to the borrower certain material terms and shall provide notice of right to cancel. 15 U.S.C. § 1635(a).
