CFPB Resource Center - Know Before You Close

It's here! Are you ready? Do you know what has changed? Do you know how those regulatory changes will impact your job? Most importantly, can you answer the questions your clients are going to be asking you?

As many of you know, 2015 is a year of tremendous change as a result of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) Final Rule that went into effect with new loans originated December 1, 2015 and after.

Chicago Title has launched a “Know Before You Close" CFPB Readiness Awareness Program to help ensure that we have frequent communication with our clients. Please check back frequently for updates.

You can also find useful information from the CFPB website at http://www.consumerfinance.gov/.
