On May 1 the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) published a fact sheet entitled Are Loan Estimates and Closing Disclosures Required for Assumptions? The factsheet consists of two parts: (1) a flowchart; and (2) a narrative discussion. The flowchart is a quick reference that highlights the major questions to be answered when determining if a Loan Estimate and Closing Disclosure are required for the assumption transactions described above. The narrative discussion provides general information that may be useful when determining if a Loan Estimate and Closing Disclosure are required, including information related to each of the major questions set forth in the flowchart.
The factsheet is available at https://files.consumerfinance.gov/f/documents/cfpb_tila-respa-factsheet.pdf.
