Consummate Away! Gov. Signs Mortgage Consummation Bill(corrected)

Sorry for the late blog, but I just found out that the Governor signed our  mortgage consummation bill(Chapter 491l. Effective immediately, the measure clarifies that, for purposes of RESPA and TILA, consummation occurs when a mortgage applicant signs both the mortgage and promissory note. This is most commonly done at closing.

This chapter provides welcomed certainty because the CFPB requires closing disclosures to be received by a member at least three days before consummation with certain exceptions. Case law suggested that consummation occurred when a financial institutional provides a member with a signed mortgage commitment.

As expected the Governor indicated that the Legislature will be amending the bill to clarify that it applies to electronic signatures
