    Mortgage broker fee. Mortgage broker fees are always included in finance charges. Credit report fees are not included when they are part of loan application fees charged to all applicants. Title and document prep fees are never included in finance charges. 
  2. For the purposes of rescinding a loan transaction, “business days” includes every day of the week except:
    Sundays and federal holidays. In calculating time limitations for the right to rescind under TILA and Regulation Z, “business days” is defined to include Saturdays. According to the federal statute and its regulations, only Sundays and federal public holidays are excluded from the definition.
  3. Who must receive a Notice of Right to Cancel in a refinance transaction?
    Anyone with ownership interest in the property. Under TILA’s rules regarding rescission, all parties with an ownership interest in a property must be provided with notice of the right to rescind, regardless of whether they are a signatory to the loan transaction. When multiple owners exist, any one of them can independently exercise the right to cancel, or rescind, the loan with three days of closing.
  4. The TIL Disclosure Statement must be re-disclosed to a borrower if:
    The APR varies more than 1/8th of 1% before closing. TILA provides for a certain threshold for variances in APR between the TIL Disclosure and the actual APR. However, if the APR varies – plus or minus – by more than 1/8th of 1% prior to closing, a new TIL Disclosure must be provided to the borrower.

  6. A borrower has gone to settlement for a cash out refinance on Tuesday. Their rescission period is over at midnight on Friday. According to the provisions specified under federal law, when does the loan fund?
    Saturday. The count for the three day rescission period begins at midnight following settlement and ends at midnight on the third day. Once the rescission period is over, the loan must fund the next business day. According to Regulation Z, Saturday is considered a business day for the purposes of rescission, so technically, the loan would fund over the weekend. Federal holidays and Sundays are the only days considered “non-business.”

  13. What is the primary purpose of the Truth-in-Lending Act?
    To ensure that creditors provide consumers clear disclosure of the terms of credit. TILA is a consumer protection law enacted by Congress with the intention of providing consumers with disclosure of the cost of credit. Regulation Z issues the rules for TILA.
  14. All of the following disclosures are provided for an adjustable rate loan, per TILA guidelines, except:
    Statement that the interest rate will be offered for the duration of the loan. An interest rate which is offered for the duration of a loan is an indicator of a fixed rate loan Changes and adjustments are indicators of adjustable rate products.
