Washington, D.C. (June 3, 2015) – Following Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Director Richard Cordray’s announcement that the Truth-in-Lending Act-Real Estate Mortgage Disclosure Act integrated disclosures (TRID) rule implementation will grant mortgage lenders leniency on the August 1, 2015 enforcement date, Credit Union National Association (CUNA) president and CEO Jim Nussle released a statement:
“I thank CFPB Director Cordray for listening to the requests of CUNA, Congress and others in our call for a safe harbor period through the end of the year for the enforcement of the TRID rule. CUNA supports the CFPB’s goal for transparency with the new disclosures helping consumers better understand mortgage terms, and now credit unions will be allowed the time they need to figure out the day-to-day aspects of complying with the rule without worrying about enforcement.”
