When it comes to a purchase, especially your home, you have the right to “Know Before You Owe”. The new mortgage disclosure rule makes it easier for you to understand what you’re committing to when you buy or refinance your home. This ruling went into effect on October 3rd, 2015. This change will give you more time to understand your mortgage costs and terms, so that you understand all and “know before you owe”.
The forms have been reduced to 2 and you are given 3 days to review the forms before closing. This is designed to protect you from any surprises at closing and provides you with time to speak with your realtor and/or attorney to ask any questions related to the terms of your mortgage.
