On October 3, 2015, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s mortgage disclosure rule – enacted to make it easier for consumers to shop for mortgages and protect them from costly surprises at their closing by integrating consumer disclosures – goes into effect. Stewart is approaching the preparation for the disclosures rule and other regulations as an opportunity to discover new ways to provide better transparency and service to all parties involved in the real estate transaction.
