The Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) and the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) provide borrowers with pertinent and timely disclosures regarding the nature and costs of credit and the real estate settlement process. RESPA provisions also protect borrowers by placing limitations on the use of escrow accounts and requiring specific disclosures of applicable charges and disbursement dates. The TILA Higher Priced Mortgage Loan (HPML) Escrow Rule helps ensure consumers set aside funds to pay property taxes, homeowner’s insurance premiums, and other mortgage-related insurance required by the creditor and requires that an escrow account for a HPML be maintained for a minimum of five years.
The Escrow Program is an efficient tool for determining whether a financial institution is properly calculating and disclosing escrow account information as required under Regulation X and Regulation Z.
This program is intended for use by banking industry professionals only.
