On June 17, 2015, Richard Cordray, Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, announced the Bureau will be issuing a proposed amendment to delay the effective date of the Truth In Lending Act (TILA) and Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) Integrated Disclosures.

“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,”  states Director Cordray.

Leading up to this announcement, there have been many pleas from the industry to delay the August 1, 2015 effective date due to the complexity of the forms and the impact on existing processes and procedures.

Stay tuned as the proposal will be open for comment shortly, and a final decision is expected quickly.
