Top 10 Things Real Estate Agents Should Know About the New Disclosure Form

On August 1, 2015 the new CFPB Closing Disclosure goes into effect. The following are the top 10 things Real Estate Brokers should know about the new TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosures:  

  1. A new closing statement form called the Closing Disclosure or CD will be used for most loan applications taken for new mortgages after August 1, 2015! The lender, not the closing agent, may be preparing and delivering the CD.
  2. The CD must be delivered to the buyer/consumer at least three business days prior to the scheduled closing date.
  3. Closing agent must get information to the lender approximately 10 to 14 days prior to the closing date for completion of CD to meet the delivery requirement.

recipeStrawberry Fluff Fruit Dip

 

Prep time: 2 minutes 

Yield: 4-6 servings  

Serving size: 1/4 cup fluffy, creamy strawberry fruit dip 

 

Ingredients:  

  • 1 - 7 oz. container marshmallow fluff or cream (name brand tastes best)
  • 1 - 8 oz. container strawberry cream cheese
  • fruit for dipping

Instructions:

  1. Place the marshmallow fluff and cream cheese into a bowl and using an electric or handheld mixer, beat the two ingredients together until smooth. This works best if you've let the cream cheese sit out for 10 minutes first, but it's not necessary. Spoon into a serving dish and arrange fruit on a platter.
