The federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau issued a brief press release yesterday, confirming reports that it would be issuing a proposed amendment to delay the effective date for the “Know Before You Owe” TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure (TRID) rule until Oct. 1, 2015.

A copy of the press release is available at:  Press Release.

The press release simply states:

“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.”

According to the CFPB, “The public will have an opportunity to comment on this proposal and a final decision is expected shortly thereafter.”

Prior to the proposed amendment, the effective date for the “Know Before You Owe” TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure rule was Aug. 1, 2015, and would apply to transactions for which the mortgage lender or broker receives an application on or after that date
