Q & A Saturday – What is TRID?

Welcome to our Q & A Saturday video.

In these Q & A Videos we will answer your questions about real estate.  Any real estate related topic from questions about selling your house, buying a house, real estate investor questions, land lording questions, local market questions and many others things are all fair game. 

Today’s question is “What is TRID?

TRID - MA and NH Real Estate

In this video Shaun discusses some of the new regulations and procedures that will be going into effect soon with the implementation of TRID.


Some of the main points covered in this video are:

1)      What does “TRID” stand for – TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure

2)      When does TRID go into effect?

3)      What delays have there been and will there be any more?

4)      The new 3 day review period that is expected to cause delays of around 2 weeks when closing a loan after the new rule goes into effect

5)      Some cynical reasons why the mortgage industry might be planning for these delays


The new TRID regulations will undoubtedly cause lots of delays when they take effect this fall.  Mortgage originators will schedule things out farther and there will be many delays at the end of the process as well.  Best course is to make sure to work closely with your mortgage professional to move things along.  As a seller you or your agent should also make sure to check in very regularly to make sure things are on track.  Make sure to be prepared to gather requested information as quickly as possible to minimize these delays.  As mentioned in the video we will do a more involved blog post as the implementation deadline gets closer and hopefully more details become clearer about the ramifications to TRID.
